I had a red & white one when I was 17 in 1987. Tuned by a bike racer, 20 in first, 40 in second, 60 in third gear and it’d get there in no time. These either had great bottom end or top speed but never both. I worshipped my bike. But I crashed it in 1987 and totally wrecked it. Lucky to be alive. But by god that bike was awesome.

My first bike back in 1986 was a white with blue stripes and buy could it fly, all speeds exhaust, racing reeds, it could fly for a 125, the bottom end was amazing, it was so easy to put on the back wheel, top speed could hit 110, does not sound much compared to modern machines but in 1986 out of a 125of was flying, loved my little rd
