Looks like a touched up Modenas KR3 bike.

Well fine... you suck.



Do I get a second guess?

Of course, you can have as many as you like

To give you a hint, it was slower than the Modenas...and there weren't many bikes slower than that.

It would be the Pulse bike ridden by Mark Willis.

Seen here.

Thumbs up You got it!

Hey RCJohn, you got it right away
Well, it shouldn't be so hard after the hint

I was expecting you to play in the 'Strange Looking Racer' (Honda Japauto) trivia, it was made to suit you. Finally limegreen got it right. I read in another of your posts that you ve been very busy lately, so that explains it.
I think you would have recognised it was a Honda immediately!

It's getting kind of slow in the trivia forum lately, I guess everybody else is out riding except me
But next week my contract in Germany expires, so I'll go back to Greece for holidays and I'll ride my bikes every single day!

The hint is what did it. I remembered that MuZ and a couple of others had fielded teams then ran out of money. Of course that Pulse bike is and adapted MUZ Elf machine. Neat looking bike. The left side exhaust was throwing me since the Modenas bikes have similar exhausts. Actually the Pulse and Modenas bikes have alot of similarities.

BTW, this was a tough one to find but I know your secret hiding place now.

I was clueless on that other race bike. It was hard to follow the sport way back then because we never got racing coverage even with Americans being so good back in the old days.

Someone needs to get Willis on a good bike. He has always been much faster than the budget machines he's ridden.
