2012 Project RC30

My biased opinion says this is by far the prettiest stock RC30 ever built! This is, of course, my project bike as described here.
Beautiful RC30 Street Bike

I like the paint job on this RC30. The only parts that look wrong to me are the white mirrors. NS400R Rothmans mirrors that are the same except black. Black or maybe gun metal Marchesini 5 spoke wheels would be nice. Everyone has their own ideas. Being unique is good.

Helmut Dahne's RC30 Nurburgring

For those that don't recognize this bike it is Helmut Dahne's personal ride. This bike is best known for being the mechanical part of the lap record at the Nürburgring Nordschleife in 1993 at 7:49.71. Helmut was the previous record holder also, but the last (and never to be surpassed) record was set using MEZ1 street tires on this street legal bike. This bike is in a fairly high state of tune, having had the hands of Roland Eckert massage it. Helmut still rides this machine.

Thanks to Klaus Hoffmann for taking such a great picture, and allowing me to display it here.

Gord's Old RC30

A few pictures of Gordon's Rothman's replica. This bike had various paint scheme's
including the OKI 24 hours paint job and a Rumi paint job. I like the Rothmans livery the
best. There is something about the front wheel/suspension I like. It's very stark and purposeful.

He sold the bike in 2009. I'll bet the new owner still has a a high rate of walking out to the shed to
look at it. It can take a while to adjust to it. This bike has a Tony Scott built engine. I've heard he
was a pretty good with wrenches in his day.

Here are a few more pictures of it ...

The above two pictures are of a 100% standard RC30. Everything just as it left the HRC shop in Hamamatsu. Even the lock wiring and original chain and sprockets are still in service. Note the original Bridgestone tire and QC paint on the caliper bolts too! None of the bolts in the pictures have ever been removed.

Adam's RC30's

RC30 Lounge

I don't own a television either. I'm too busy, and life's way too short. Nice tile job.

Dave Solo at Grattan

Dave going for it at Grattan. You are looking at 2% of the Canadian RC30 production for 1989.

Typical Tony Scott Work

Why is it that I only ever see Tony Scott engines in this condition? There seems to be a pattern here...
