Yes, it is a beautiful bike. I believe I still have the issue that the bike is featured in. It shows the bike at various angles, as well as the engine disassembled. It was fuel injected, a v4 I think. The magazine was Cycle World. I'll try to find the issue soon and see what all it said.
So, how about another simple question?
What did the NR stand for? Not official by any means, it was just a slur that started somewhere, like calling it Nitrous Ripper...so what do you think it's nickname was for a while? Oh, I don't know about Hustler, and I find it hard to believe that anyone would lend out that bike! Not me, no sir! I think it went for about 60k.
