    The Bucket Foundry

    Thread Starter: Yow Ling

    Thread Starter: sidecar bob

    Does anyone remember a bike that was raced in Australia in the 80's that appeared to be a GSXR 400 with an 1135EF engine in it? Im curious to know more about it. Who built it, who rode it, was it competitive, & what became of it.
