Damon Buckmaster R1

Hi Folks:

You are not going to believe this... or you might. I have been asked to sell Damon Buckmaster's AMA Factory Yamaha R1. It was built by Chuck Graves of course. Before you wet yourself, this is his bike from two seasons ago. it is also signed by the Buckmeister himself.

Nonetheless - this is a TRUE RACE BIKE! Not a replica, not a track bike, not someone creating an amatuer race bike from aftermarket pipes.

I am still getting all the specs. on this monster. From what I know, it has:

Ohlins Superbike Forks
Ohlins Steering Damper
Brembo Floating Disks
Brembo Masters
Chuck Graves Exhaust
Chuck Graves Radiator

Other things like Quick Release Brake lines, C/F abound, etc.

Here's the kicker, the thing is worth about $20K... anyone have some spare change?

Michael
