This months winner has the bike that I first saw many years ago that started  my obsession with V4's.

Never looked back :)

VERY NICE!  tenof10 Brings back memories of installing the fairing on your V65 at Magoo's summer party, Michael.  Friend of mine had one when I had my 82 V45 Sabre.  His bike scared the hell out of me.  Awesome ride.

 I want to say thanks for picking my Sabre as "BIKE OF THE MONTH".  It makes an old mans heart feel good to know all my work was not for nothing. From a cardboard box of parts to what you see in the pics and it will still freeze the grin on your face when the throttle is twisted.

     Thanks, Old Man

Congrats on the great looking sabre. They'll never be the belle of the ball but they are certainly worthy of the work and love.
