PUH ZOOKIES!!!

The four images below are all of Kevin Schwantz' GS1000 racebike. Another sick specimen ... well built, very sexeh .... monoshock rear suspension and full floating rear caliper mount .... just prior to the 16 inch front wheel era.

I'm sure that's a GS750ESF that Keven rode in '85.

AMA went to 750 in '83.

I had a 1983 GS750ESD...they came with a 16" front wheel. It sucked.

Here's Cooley on a Yoshi GS750ESD in '83. Schwantz replaced him in '85 due to injury. The bike raced as a 770cc on 17" rims with slicks.

Yea ... I got a bit lazy with dating the bikes a few times in this thread. You're right!

THE SUZUKI KATANA (post #1 of 3):

This is a mix of the original Katana and modern replicas of the same mighty motorcycle. I'll do each post with about a half dozen pics per post to make managing and browsing them simpler. I think the Katana is one of the more "fast looking" bikes of the small fairing era of the 1980s. Once put into race trip they are insanely good looking motorcycles. The fairing, the "tipped up" fuel tank, and seat are probably what gives the Katana it's signature look for the most part. However, I'm no fan of the new release of the Katana that Suzuki put out there recently, that bike is more of an effort to milk the public out of their munnies from my point of view.

These first few are of Wes Cooley and Dave Aldana on their factory Suzuki Katanas ....

I haven't posted anything at all within the Ducati MS forum in roughly three days ... I've got some life issues going on. This particular thread is on hold for a while, at least from the perspective of my additions to it.

I can be reached privately at [email protected] ... please be sure to put something regarding ~Ducati~ in the subject line so your message isn't over looked.

This thread has been fun. Thanks for everyone's appreciation and participation.

:)
