Here's a cool shot that The Rider Files posted of some bikes we may know. Lou - can you tell what bike Pablo is on? Andre's on a Tricolor 851. What a sound those four going by must have made!

Hi Bill, Cranky Roller sent me that photo this morning! Pablo Real on my old TT. Boy do I miss that bike. Bill have you seen this one? Your 851 and a Harris bevel. Lou

That's probably the best shot of it. It looks so fresh. Wish Dustin Hoffman there had picked a different place to sit and chat. Also wish those rear sets had survived. That little rear rotor did though.

I thought that was Serpico! That is actually Markie I forgot his last name who now works at NY motorcycle and use to race an F1. He blasts pass me everyday on the highway on a juiced up ST2 Ducati. It sounds awesome. Lou

Hey Lou,
I think that photo is of Jimmy on my bike. Look at the aluminum scoops on the sides, the RG500 forks and the paint scheme and stickers on the side and compare them with the photo that you posted on the photo page.

Another great shot! Brian

Hi Brian, it has your lower fairing and my upper fairing. As we know those bikes were mixed and matched. I also ended up with the RGB front end on my bike by the end of it all. Suffice to say Pablo is riding our bikes! It even looks like the lower fairing has the old paint job. Lou

Lou, is the lower in the photo? Isn't that an 851 on the left? What do you know about it? It appears it's fork legs have switched sides.

Hi Guys, I think the #4 bike belonged to Fabian Cortez. It was a 1990 sport. Ferracci actually made replicas of this bike with PM wheels and engine mods. I think this is Fabians actual bike, I will try to look it up. He might have won some races and maybe a championship, again I will try to confirm this unless some guys on the Forum know. Bill, the 851/888 was Pablo Real's primary bike. My old TT1 was the backup machine. I think he destroyed this bike in Macau and was badly injured. By the way, the 'little' guy next to Pablo is Reno Leoni. Lou

Lou,
Any chance you could post that photo in a format you could zoom in on? Got to see that 851 front end better.
Found these on the Sport:
