    He has several collectable sportbikes, and well over 100 bikes total. There's some pics around somewhere of his garage and home...it's all bikes!

    Re: R7 on ebay

    I know a guy who has a real R7 (which he rarely rides due to its value), as well as a replica that he does ride. The replica is even more trick; built with a mix of real R7 parts and high-zoot other Yamaha parts, including a front end from a GP bike.

    Of that era, I'd most desire a Honda RC30, but one of those just sold at auction for over $50K, so I'm unlikely to get one. I could buy a genuine drawing by Degas, or an excellent Rembrandt etching or two, for less than that.

    Sounds like the guy our R7 sold his R7 to.

    The guy that bought mine is from San Diego, and my old R7 has changed hands at least once after that. He had a real trick R71 Haga replica and posted some pics of the 2 bikes together that were pretty killer shots

    Might be. The guy I know is named Mark, and his father-in-law is Sonny Angel, who was one of the longest-running bike dealerships. I bought my Duc from Sonny, back in 1993; he'd been there since he founded the dealership in 1953. Sonny retired just last year. He'll be 90 next week.

    Yeah that Haga rep was sick.

    There is a zero mile RC30 here in RI that someone has. He's been turning down $50K offers. Someone else I know recently sold a clean RC30 with low miles for around $30K.

    Because single-sided swingarms either add weight, or reduce stiffness. In an endurance racing bike, the tradeoff of faster pitstops when changing the rear tire may make them worth it, but for a racing series where the tires are expected to last the race, there is no upside other than they look cool.

    Well, there is that. But you don't make the problem any better by making it worse (a fact that some politicians have a dire need to become aware of). The RC51 did its job in Superbike, so whatever decisions and compromises Honda made, they did it well enough.
