There is a guy in Louisiana that has a collection that has one for sale. Not cheap. I tried to buy a Bimota YB8 like my old one and he had just sold it. He has some VERY cool bikes including RC30, Brian and Ghezi (sp?) Moto Guzzi, OW01 (I think). I think it was listed as sinless cycles or something like that. He also had some cool bike stand type contraptions to move the bikes around on. They weren't cheap, but they weren't out of the park for what they are.

Found it...

Looks like the collection has been thinned out a bit though. I don't see the Zook.

Y'all don't flame me for the ghey movie, but it's what made me want a go fast bike. I think I was like 9 when I saw this movie in theaters. So at the time, I thought the motorcycle scenes were awesome! I'm pretty sure the bike was a 1991 GSXR-750M

I guess my first inkling as a kid that I wanted a motorcycle was when my dad took me to Texas Yamaha in South Houston around 1986-1987. I was 10-11 yrs old and saw the FZR1000 in white/red/blue and I had never seen anything like it. My dad had always rode Goldwings, Harleys etc and at that time, had a Yamaha 1100 "Special". Sportbikes were not common back then like they are now, I don't even think I had seen them on TV yet. Then I saw the little YSR 50 in white/red sitting there and BEGGED him for it. He said "NO.....when you grow up, you can get a motorcycle if you want to but you are not getting one of those lay down race bikes".....LOL

10 yrs later he was riding my first sportbike home from the dealer for me because I didn't know how to ride and the sickness started from there.

To this day he is still scared to death of my busa and the stuff I do with it.

Not quite the same bike but about the same vintage and less money.
