Title: April 2020 Bike of the Month
Post by: FromMaine on April 01, 2020, 05:38:36 AM
This months winner owned a true work of art. Although he eventually sold it on, it deserves a place here for sure.

I remember the first time I saw pics of this bike, all dreams of V65 Sabre glory I had crashed, and were left a smoldering pile of grey and red metal and plastic by the side of the road. I moved on and realized my 85 red/grey V65 Sabre would forever be the "Sister with a great personality" and we all know what that means.

The bike has a few subtle mods, Muzzy exhaust (I think) Sargent seat (ditto) bar end mirrors, but what Ichiro and his boys rolled out of the factory shines through.

So, EricD10563, your absolute pristine 85 V65 Sabre is April 2020's BOTM.

A link to the original post, and I encourage you to scroll through all the pics.

Wow, a blast from the past. Thanks for the nomination.

 The seat was a Corbin seat with a removable back rest. The mufflers were Supertrapp slip-on and the handlebars were Daytona Superbike bars. I've always wondered what happened to the bike, is it still in pristine condition?

Hope all are doing well, thanks again for the memories.
