    The R1s I built last year

    Sorry all, haven't been on PF in ages. Life and other shit got in the way.

    Last year was good bike wise. I built a retrotech R1 as a 20th anniversary tribute, I got to turn a brand new 2018 R1 into a 2-up track bike for Dunlop AU and I also rebuilt a stock 98 R1 for myself.

    Sweet! I saw the Speedhunters article about the retrotech R1s a while back and quite enjoyed the whole idea.

    It's to test if your balls are big enough to ride it properly.

    Remember reading the article in a mag detailing the red and white bikes. Very cool.

    AMCN did a basic write up on it, but the guys from Performance Bikes in the UK did a pretty decent story.
