    A bit like OW01's every one says 500. But that was in 1989 and then more in 90-92...

    RC30's are well over 3000 all up (and more built than OW01's).

    R7 OW-02 Yamaha more like the RC45 volumewise I think and already pricing up ahead of OW01's.

    It may belong or used to belong to a chap who was a specialist engineering contracor to the pulp and paper industry. If so, he also has or had a Ducati 851 superbike still in its crate, a few other unridden bikes of that era and a perfectly restored E-type Jag - early one with the aerodynamic headlight covers. I must have paid too much for his services

    Yeah funny enough same with the NC35 vs the NC30
    not sure why as the styling clues are so simimilar i guess one of the few things that adding some gentle curves don't improve
    IMO the 916 was also streets ahead in the looks of the RC45 as well.

    The NR was maybe what the 45 should have looked like.

    In 1989 I worked briefly with a guy who bought a VFR100RR.

    We all told him he'd kill himself on it.

    Three weeks later it turned out we were right.

    Didn't a new RC45 get stolen while being taken for a test ride (in Christchurch IIRC) never to be seen again?
    it's not a bad thing till you throw a KLR into the mix.
    those cheap ass bitches can do anything with ductape.

    I believe that it was recovered some years later being stropped around south Auckland having been painted matt black. I understand its the one now owned by Brendan from Honda Country Ashburton. He was at a trackday I was at and its an impressive sounding bit of kit.
