    No, he got it as an insurance write off. He had a buddy who made a living repairing crashed exotic cars and would clue him in when he came across bike stuff. This one was lightly damaged. The original rear rim was tweaked (rideable but not quite right) so I rebuilt the wheels for him with the SS spokes and Excel rims. He did all the other mods, many of which were to fix cosmetic stuff.

    I was amazed when I saw it sitting outside in that condition. Long story on how it got to that point but it's indoors now and I'm pretty sure he'll return it to it's former glory.

    The yellow sport was always my favorite of the line, I was never a big fan of the Paul Smart version. Never bought one myself though. I did see a picture of one done up as an F1, supposedly by the factory. If that had seen the light of day I may have pulled the trigger.

    I had a 750 GT roundcase at the time and always thought the GT version of that bike was fooking hideous.

    I really liked the look of this concept bike, hard to believe it was 10 years ago. Shame it wasn't ever built.

    That metallic blue, whatever it's called, is a great colour. Put a 600 in that and I'd be a buyer.

    Fairly sure the colour is Ice blue.
