Just saw this on CL.....for sale in Medina?
Was that the bike RacerX gave away in a sweepstakes?
Grega should have gone there instead!!!!
is that a factory clutch lever?
No I am almost certain this is not a sweepstakes bike. The kawi in the background is also a Tommy hahn bike which is often at apple cabin. I saw the owner at ram jam a few times last year on the kawi 450 that still had hahns pre prints, team graphics, and even the factory hubs we all dream about with hahns stickers on them plus all the other goodies. I talked to the owner, a very nice guy and he told me the story on the bike which I really dont remember much of. I do know in one way or another he has a friendship personal/business related with the team owner or someone along those lines of Hahns team, and at the end of the year he would buy Hahns race bike from him. The bikes are the real deal and from what I was told the only parts that were removed from the kawi were parts not avaliable to the public, everything else remained on the bike.
Tommy's old mechanic works for the guy selling that bike. He is the crew cheif for the Matco/Army topfuel team. Bike was actually Tommy's.
yup! thats it! If I remember right canidae dog food was a sponsor of his drag team at one time also?
yumm dog food
sure ill bite.... i have put just about any free time i have into maintain my 2007 CRF and do what i can to keep it looking like the old MDK team bikes that wey and DV12 used to ride.
I would sell it and start another project but id be lucky to get 3k for it and its not worth it to me.
I said all that for this. The guy has one of these hottest, best prepped machines, best parts any money can buy and the bike sits with bent levers and covered in dirt... Ill catch some **** for this but im just saying
If any bike get beat, it's a Professional Rider who does the beating on their bikes. I'm sure Hahn can put a beating on a 450 about 100 times what I can do to one... $8500--blahaaahahahhahahahahaha. No.
But I'm sure that since he can afford hahn's old bikes, that it doesn't really matter if he cleans em or not since he's buying new bikes yearly or half yearly anyways. Buying a pro's bike is like buying a bomb. Even if you can afford the top of the line replacement parts it requires, buying them as often as the bike is going to need is a stretch for any local.
@ddmx: bomb is right! Especially for how we "non-pro's" ride the bikes. If you're gonna drop 85 bones then atleast drop it on a new bike and put a pipe on it.
I know Logan #227 bought the kawi from him!!
ive got his old kawi... i defintly didnt pay no 85 for it i gotta damn good deal on it acutally, also a kick ass bike with no time and motor all gone threw n been done n freshened up ...
i race A class and doing all amauter nationals on it.
