Last year I found two 1998 SPS's that had been hidden away in a storage unit for 18 years. One had only 7 miles on it. That's the one in the last pic. As you can see, the one I'm restoring with a touch over 6,000 miles will be even nicer than the 7 mile one. Did a complete rebuild with some special work done. It's amazing. It should be back in a couple of weeks.

The SPS is a fun bike. Mine is one of about 50 that were sold new state side in 1997. Bought it from the original owner who had to sign a waiver that it would be for track use only. It has some Feracci go fast parts and internals and a midrange punch that's still impressive by today's standards. The best part is the sound!

(sorry to hijack the thread gnance, congrats on that killer SL!)

Shoot Adrian, I thought I needed to update the signature. My wife hates me. It's a sickness without a cure. Let's admit it, we're all infected!
