I've got 4 R7's in different configurations.

Here's Michael Rutter's R7 powered by a Motec Injected 1084cc superbike motor. It punted out 179 rwhp on my dynojet 200. I rode it at the new track in NJ last week. Very sweet machine. Take a good lok at it withit's clothes off. GP spec front end, many one off pieces. The bike was prepared by Slick Bass (Fogerty's championship Ducati mechanic). It raced the Macua GP in 1999 and won with Rutter on board. cool huh? wanna see some of the others R7's?

here's it's big brother...

This is the famous monster bike that Chuck Graves built over the two span between forumla extreme races during the 2003 AMA Championship. It is a R7 mated to a R1 frame. Stuffed inside is a very nasty carburated R1 Superbike motor. This is the bike that Damon Buckmaster won the Formula Extreme championship on in 2003. I've ridden it at Road America,VIR and Louden. Let's just say that Louden and this bike are not friends. I almost had a lunar landing when I got flung up in the air while on the gas coming out of turn three. Somehow I stayed on, went back in and parked it. Then cleaned out my shorts......Look closely at the cool stuff on this machine...:nos











Did anyone spot the quick disconnect on the front brake lines..how about the magnesium fork lowers, brembo gp spec calipers....cool shit here.....:humpleg

that radiator big enough for you all?......

That bike is top on my list of all time favorite race bikes!! This is the bike that the AMA declared ileagle half way through the season, correct? If you ever want to sell it call me first. I can be reached on this board at any time.

This is the bike that the AMA allowed Graves to race after the controversy. The bike which was banned was a R7 with a R1 motor. My friend Jeff from Seattle has that bike. This machine retains least 30% of the stock frame from the R1 (2003 MODEL). In reality the whole R7 is really just covered up with the frame rails from a 2003 R1. I'm not totally sure but the headstock and frame geometry looks the same as my R7. Either way this thing is a work fo art. And yes it full on rips...here's shot from VIR...
