Our Italian friends at Reparto Sportivo are playing their part to keep the much-shrunk interesting blog universe alive with irregular, but long blog posts.
The latest is about the Buell-based Sundance Weapon Battle of The Twins racer (below) and includes the photo above, of the Buell RR-1000, the race bike was based on, riding on the road in Japan in the late-80s. It is my favourite bike photo I've seen in ages.
Battle of the Twins was a big thing when I first got into bike magazines, reading Performance Bikes. It was such a great class, because the rules were so open. Then Proddie Bike racing came to the fore and killed radical creativity.
Visit Reparto Sportivo and hope that your web browser translates Italian (like mine does). GI
