Suzuki: Two more Barry Sheene motorcycles will be restored "live" at NEC
Suzuki has been operating the Vintage Parts Program since 2013, a special service whose goal is to provide the necessary parts for maintaining the legendary Hamamatsu models. You can find these parts here.

In order to promote this excellent service, it will restore old racing models using these parts, with the entire process happening live, at the NEC motorcycle exhibition, at Birmingham, UK, which opens its doors on the 16th of November.

This year, Suzuki chose two bikes by the legendary Barry Sheene. A 1984 RG500 (XR45) - the last competition bike he rode, and a 625cc 1979 RG500 (XR23A) that he rode to compete in the Trans Atlantic and F1 categories in 1979.

The two racing bikes, that have already reached their destination after being sent by Sheen's family in Australia, will be fully restored in front of the exhibitions' attendants.

Alongside these two models, Suzuki will also display a 1978 RG500 (XR27) which will not be restored.

Check out this video of the delivery of the bikes by Suzuki UK.
