December 2009/January 2010

Mr. Yoshi had bought this NSR a couple of years ago with the intention of starting a whole new project that would involve him redoing his NSR with a whole new look and complete restoration with more modern looks and performance. 208K - Click for full size image

The bodywork is very cool, the front upper and lower fairing is a RS250 one from Speed Design. The light was custom fabricated and the fairing cut to match it along with custom made stays to hold the fairing in place. A new wind screen and front fender from a RS250 were added as well. The seat is the classic TYGA GP type seat with its sharp looks and LED lights. The frame was beautifully polished to a mirror like finish. 112K - Click for full size image

Other performance goodies are the modified airbox with Daytona Turbo filter, custom carbs, lightened and balanced crankshaft, custom stainless steel racing pipes with titanium silencers and more.
The suspension was upgraded with a complete RS250(NF5) front end including the brake calipers. The suspension was rebuilt and revalved by Japan's top suspension tuning shop OKUMURA Japan along with the stock SP rear shock. A single sided rear swingarm from a MC28 SP was custom fit to the MC21 frame and holds MC28 Magtek wheels front and back with new rubber. Brakes have been upgraded with the stock but rebuilt RS250 calipers, Sunstar 296mm floating discs, braided lines all around, BREMBO 19mm radial billet master cylinder and high performance pads 218K - Click for full size image

The paint work and decals are designed on the MoviStar Fortuna colors with a Rothmans Honda racing theme that turned out extremely well with the gold powder coated magnesium wheels and blue metallic paint job. Well done Mr. Yoshi !!

Usually every month I try to feature a different NSR in this section. Recently it has become a bimonthly feature due to time restrictions and a lack of material. Above you can check out the featured Bike of the Month and past Bikes of the Month. Do you think your NSR belongs here ? Then send a few pictures and some information and maybe we can feature it here. Mail me here. Cheers !!
