Barry Sheene Replica - Suzuki RGV250 with Immaculate Paint Job
A beautiful specimen of a motorcycle to begin with, but with the Barry Sheen replica paint styling really does set this bike apart.
I remember my first Suzuki RGV 250 two stroke, bought it from some women down in Stockport, South Manchester, I had never owned my own but had ridden a pals RGV so new what they were like. The alarm bells should have rung when she refused to allow me to test ride the bike and then sked if I had ever owned one. After purchasing the bike, I was riding it home thinking there is power missing and it was fealing very sluggish as though it was missing a cylinder.
Anyway, I took the bike out for its first thrashing and a van decided to get in my way and the bike got slightly trashed, home it went and I stripped it. At this point I thought this is a good time to take it to a two-stroke expert. It turned out that the power valves had been fitted back to front, once sorted it was eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee 1st eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee 2nd eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee 3rd and so on what a f===== mental machine. Best two strokes for having extreme fun. I am currently looking for another as a donor along with a rG500 combine the 2 and hey presto we have a RGV500...............
