Road Bike: 2000 748S

This is my road bike, a 2000 model 748S.

It was originally bought from new by a friend of mine, who I knew through our ownership of Honda RVF400RRs, as he'd finally given up on the unreliability of his and always fancied the classic 916 shape bike.

He bought it brand new in 2000 and commuted into London on it through the winter, but never really got on with it ... I'm not surprised!

Six months later he offered it to me at a silly price and I bit his arm off.

It came with a single seat and 50mm carbon Termis, so most of the major mods were done, but then I caught a major infection of carbon-itis!

So it now has:
carbon airbox
carbon air tubes
carbon front mudguard
carbon hugger
carbon race swingarm guard
carbon exhaust shield
carbon corse heel guards
carbon v-piece
carbon clock surround with rev-light
carbon fuel cap
carbon tank guard
carbon key guard (this disappeared on the A12!)
billet sprocket cover in black by tecmoto
billet vented clutch cover in black
billet rearsets in black
black anodised dzus fasteners
black fairing bolts
double-bubble tinted screen with black border
STM 48t Evoluzione slipper clutch
TSS Quick Release rear-sprocket holder with 40t (+2t) rear sprocket
Tsubaki Omega X-Ring Gold chain
Pipercross oem-style replacement air filters
Brembo radial 16x18 brake master cylinder with small reservoir conversion
Brembo radial billet clutch master cylinder
billet rideheight adjuster anodised black
CNC top yoke in black

I also have a Ventura luggage system for it which is the nuts, as I usually take it to France on tour every year for a weekend with friends.
