Kunny is a retired Japanese racer and was active in the all Japan GP several years ago. One day while at his friends motorcycle shops he noticed a MC28 sitting way in the corner that looked to need some attention. 182K - Click for full size image

After getting the bike back home, he started on the long process of pulling it all apart, deciding what parts to rebuild or replace and ordered new bodywork including a rear seat from Silhouette Japan. Kunny by the way is a professional painter nowadays and specializes in custom paint work. He always loved the look of the Rossi Nastro Azzuro colors and thought that would be perfect for his new ride. All paint and bodywork was handled by Kunny's shop and the stickers were purchased else where. 112K - Click for full size image

The engine was completely rebuilt by Kunny himself, he used MC21 heads with 0.3mm base gaskets for increased head capacity. The bike is derestricted too. The carbs were rebuilt and rejet using the stock airbox. Exhaust is handled by after market performance race pipes with aluminum silencers. 161K - Click for full size image
