I came close to buying one, buy since it seemed like an unusual bike and was a bit small I decided to go with the safer choice, my cb750

That old school paint scheme is the bomb.

Yeah, I think the Honda racing colours paint scheme still looks cool, especially the yellow number plate area.

These bikes are the Freddie Spencer replica. They are 3-cylinder, 2-strokes that make an awesome, very unique exhaust note. They are very rare, and were imported into Canada only during 1986. My bike's registration number is ......xxxx003, which means it's the 3rd one into Canada. In the Vancouver area (where I live), there are only maybe 2 or 3 still on the road, and none in the bike groups that I ride with. It's a blast to ride, and can easily keep up with the 600's in the group, especially in the twisties (16" front wheel makes it very nimble).
