Well, didn't win any awards, but wasn't really expecting to. After all it is a vintage bike show and this thing looked about as far from being vintage as you could get with that group.

However almost the entire day there was a small crowd gathered around it. Couple of inquiries about for sale or not and a couple more about asked about building them one. I swear there must have been several hundred pictures taken of it during the day!!

Not one person as able to guess what everything was. A few got the front end and a few got the CBR rear end. Only two recognized the paint scheme as Bubba Shobert's RS750. Most just smiled and shook their head when we ran down where all the pieces came from and how well they all worked together.

Just need a few more pieces....hydraulic brake light switch, horn and a speedo and it will be ready for a constructed vehicle title inspection.

The first thing I thought when I saw that bike was it looked like a Bubba or Ricky G. replica.

I think it would be great if you rode that PC800 into the midst of a Pirate Fest. Just be sure to wear a nice pastel riding outfit.

No way man! They will think I'm a Barry Manilow fan and make me walk the plank.

The whole electronic insurance data base thing. If your proof of ins has an effective date over 45 days they can't accept it, unless your ins company does the electronic data share.

Mine was fine but took a few minutes for them to sort out because they didn't scan my driver lic right off.
