hey guys and girls, i hear quite regularly that people are always on the lookout for cheap race bikes. there are three bikes for sale right now in the classifieds that most of us know quite well, and are priced quite reasonably. steve erlendson has his ZX6R for sale for $2500. this bike has done 1:15's at mission, is well sorted out and ready to race. and dana and greg both have their early edition R6's up for sale. dana has steve dicks old number one plate holder R6, tons of spares, ready to race and before anyone thinks these bikes are not competitive, stevie did 1:11's on this bike. greg owns robert (formerly of Mspeed) mcminns old R6, and this bike is also a rocket. contact the boys and i'm sure they'd be willing to talk turkey with the right person. i've always been an outspoken advocate of buying a used, older bike to learn on. and for what it's worth, we just did the portland four hour endurance on an older F3, and the newer bikes aren't that much faster in a straight line, and a good racer on an older bike is giving up nothing to a slower rider on a newer bike. discuss.
