Description

Roberto Pietri's 1979 AMA Superbike Yoshimura 1000 with a rather odd history with American Honda. Early in 79 Roberto had Pop's build him a full tilt 1025cc Superbike capable of winning races for the sum of $10. 00 (approx $40k today) Mike Velasco was working at Yosh in 79 and they installed an 1105cc kit for some addition boot.

As the story goes. sometime in mid 79 American Honda announced they were going back into roadracing for the 1980 season with Roberto's friend Steve McLaughlin as the manager / racer. Honda knew the Suzuki's were the bike to beat in Superbike as they were winning most of the races. While RSC in Japan was building 4 superbikes for American Honda. Roberto loaned his Yosh racer to the Honda team for evaluation which included dyno time. dragracing at Orange County Raceway. laps at Riverside and maybe even a trip to RSC in Japan. The rear KYB shock's were sent to Mulhland for their own evaluation. Pop's Yosh heard about the testing and was upset with Roberto and wouldn't sell him any spares. Roberto became a factory Honda rider for 1980 for loaning the Suzuki to Honda and knowing the right people.

Has all of the 79 Yosh frame mods. full Yosh motor with close ratio trans. magneto ignition. cams. porting. Keihin CR31 carbs. straight cut gear on clutch and crank. New Works performace shocks. Morris Mag's and Lockheed calipers.
