Thanks Mike! I always do my best on everything I work on..... I'm sure you'll see it soon. I should have it road legal in the next couple weeks.

BTW where is our local weds hang out? We need to get something started again since Beer Garden is gone.



I enjoy the Tues/weds bike nights...

Yes I think it will do both of those for sure. That D&D is seriously raspy loud.....Normally I hate bikes like that but on this one....its kind of neat.....it sounds like a race bike for sure..... All bark, no bite....

Here is a poster I just bought... This is the 1991 1100 Endurance bike that I believe is in the Barber Motorsports Museum. I thought it was a cool pic and can see some similarities between this 1100 and my 750. I figure I will collect what Team Hammer memorabilia I can when I find it, then maybe it will help with the resale of my 750.
41400e5f

Still hoping to get some pics of my actual 750 that the original rider Michael Martin thinks he may have.

The thing to do is use the 750's head on a bandit 1200 block.. Think LS-VTEC

Correct....stock 750s and 1100s were basically the same bikes other then the engines etc etc. I was talking about the similarities between the Team Hammer 1100 Endurance bikes and the 750 SS bikes. (PM wheels, Fox shock, auxiliary oil coolers, race bodywork and Hammer colors/paint scheme.

If I was planning on keeping his one long term as one my personal bikes, I would do a nice 1216cc, use this ported 750 head but with yosh cams/springs and 1mm bigger valves. That with some 41mm FCR flat slides would make around 160-170rwhp....

But I'm not planning on doing any of that as I will likely sell this one after a little while. I want to finish fixing it up, ride it for a few months and sell it.

I'd say that bike has a few tricks up its sleave.
1100
frames are a bit taller.
swingarms are longer
front end clip-ons are in different location. 750 below / 1100 above.
The Tripple clamps were beafier on the 1100 compared to the 750.

I think I have a pic of that teams race bike from auto-rama. I'm not sure of the year but i'll be close... i'll try to find it tonight.

My next project.....1991 Team Hammer GSXR750 Road race bike....FULL BUILD THREAD.

You forget how big the older super bikes were when comparing it to that 2001ish Gix 1000 sitting there. I remember when I bought my 03 750 brand new with 0 miles. It was sitting next to my old Kan-a-tuna at the dealer and at the time it was wild how tiny the new 750 seemed in comparison; and now the new litter bikes next to my 750 are even smaller! It's like they're becoming midgets.

Well I took her on the maiden voyage today..... I put about 20 miles on it. I couldn't beat on it too much because it still has its 20yr old race tires. It ran pretty well....I need to tweak on the carbs just slightly for a 5000rpm, steady throttle lean spot but...other then that I was impressed. Its high strung to say the least. She is geared pretty low and for good reason. Doesn't really start making good steam until about 7-8k rpms....but it feels like it wants to come alive at 8k-9k. I didn't take it over about 9k due to the tires. Handling is very nimble, this bike feels much smaller then my 01 1000 in width and length. Brakes are good, forks and shock are STIFF....The ride is pretty harsh and the riding position is a rack. No doubt these early GSXRs were meant to do one then and one thing only.....road race.

I will have some new Pilots on it in a couple weekends and a new rear brake stay as this one is like spaghetti.

I will get some final pics up once I polish the wheels, swap back to the stock rear rotor, new brake stay etc etc..... then its off too roost it through the Forrest and see if this ole dinosaur can keep up with some of you boys on the modern hotrods...

If you're going to hang on to it for a while let me make one suggestion please: invest in some ZoopSeal http://zoopseal.com/ and apply it the next time you polish that frame. You can thank me in January 2013 when you realize you haven't had to spend 12 hours polishing aluminum in a looong time. Nice project, it's in good hands!!!!

Hey Frank, whats up bro?

I have not gotten anything from Martin yet. I have been exchanging emails with John Ulrich(Team Hammer Owner) and he has been emailing back and forth with Kyle Martin (Michael Martin's nephew) and Kyle speaks with Michael. Michael recognized the bike and told John that the bike was raced in the 750 Supers Sport classes. He was supposed to be digging up pics/historical info but I havent seen it.


I did manage to contact the 2nd owner who bought the bike from Team Hammer in Jan 92. I spoke with his wife for a bit....he was out of town but I should be able to talk to him tomorrow night. His wife remembered a lot about the bike and she said her husband would be willing to talk to me for hours about as he still loves it. So we'll see, maybe i will have some interesting stories from him to post up tomorrow night.

Tonight was an interesting night. I managed to make contact with the 2nd owner and builder of this bike.....He was more then eager to tell me EVERYTHING about it..... Here is the story:

After the 1991 750 Super Sport Road Atlanta race, Cam Mason purchased this 750 from Team Hammer/Michael Martin with a fresh 771cc motor with only the Road Atlanta race mileage on it. He purchased the bike for $8k and Team Hammer delivered it to him at his house in Dallas with their Team Valvoline Suzuki big rig.

Cam Mason raced the bike 6-8 times in 92' then decided to build the bike into a show bike. He did ride it about 2600 miles on the street before/during/after the show build. He street raced the bike a lot in 93-94' and said to have spanked a lot of 1100s. He showed the bike in dozens of shows until he sold it in the early 2000s.

To the best of his knowledge, this is what Richard Martin told him was in the motor:

Race Engine Service built:
1 mm over pistons (771cc) which was legal for 750 SS class
Ported and milled head
Possibly some Yosh stg 1 cams (or some kind of custom ground cams)
Mikuni Ride Smart flat slides(not currently on the bike)

When Cam got the bike, he dynoed it at Sabin Performance in Dallas and it made 116rwhp. (Keep in mind this is 1992....that is what 1100s made then).

After all of his chasis mods and lightening, he put the bike on a certified scale and it weighed 385lbs full of fuel.

After a decade of ownership, Cam decided to sell the bike. He sold it to a wealthy Restauranteer / Hot Rod shop owner who paid $15k for it in the early 2000s. He used the bike for decor in his Hotrod shop until Dec 2007. Then it was sold on ebay for an undisclosed amount.


SO that is the story behind it. I got it from the guy that would know best. He is a very friendly guy and loves talking about the bike.....gave me a ton of info. Pretty cool stuff.
