There is no denying that the GSXR slabsides are very much in vogue at the moment. Their popularity among the contemporary classic restoration fraternity is at an all time high. Here at OSS we like to things a little differently and although we have always loved the slabby we’re not purists. This months bike of the month winner would satisfy purists and tinkerers alike.
After building a classic GSXR slabside 750 racer for the IOM and supporting the team as their pit mechanic a few year back, long time OSS enthusiast Yoshi Johnny ( John Oliver) decided it was time to build a bike and take to the track himself. Inspired by the Team Lockhart GSXR squad that won two AMA Endurance road racing championships in the 1980s John has built a stunning GSXR 750 Lockhart inspired track bike. Along with trusted horse box HQ he has been touring UK circuits cutting his teeth on the track.
Congratulations John your bike of the month picture is even more dynamic than Dale’s is. We have no idea how fast you are going here but it looks impressive.
