Thumb Duh

I should have known by the tank shape. But I have never seen a faired RZ before.....well that I knew of.
Thanks

Looking at the bikes, side by side, I think they are different:

The white bike is NOT an RZ350. That is a RADICALLY more modern bike. My guess would be is that it's a TZ250 or something from the 250 2 stroke race class.

Yup, I noticed the alloy frame instead of the steel tube.
The fairing is very close though.

One of Performance Bike's 'shops of what a modern RD500 would be. Sweet ain't it?

There's 2 of these for sale if you've a spare $50K and the knowledge to make it run. It's supplied with no electronics due to some contractual BS. I'm wondering how well a MegaSquirt would work here????

Does he ride it? I hate to think about neat motorcycles doomed to life in front of the barcalounger.

Met a guy who (gosh, I hope he's not reading this) had an MV Agusta Senna AND a Ducati Senna tribute model. They flanked the fireplace in his den. Like keeping Secretariat on leash, if you ask me.
