The great GPZ re­vival

Practical Sportsbikes (UK) - - PS MAIL -

I’ve been buy­ing this mag­a­zine since the very first is­sue, I was re­ally look­ing for­ward to is­sue 90 April 18 be­cause I own a GPZ900. While en­joy­ing my Sun­day morn­ing cup of tea and PS read, I started to read the write-up about the GPZ Revo­lu­tion (by the way fan­tas­tic ar­ti­cle).

I no­ticed the pho­tos from 1989 Brit GP for Charles Dew­ing and mates then the reg. hit me from the red and sil­ver 900; I just hap­pen to have that bike in my garage which I ob­tained in bits in a box with a frame back in 2005.

I have spent all those years slowly col­lect­ing and re­build­ing, putting things back to­gether, and sav­ing it from be­ing made into a hard­tail chop­per. I wanted it back as close to orig­i­nal as pos­si­ble.

Af­ter see­ing the pho­tos I have al­ways won­dered what the bike’s his­tory was, and af­ter see­ing these pho­tos in your ar­ti­cle it’s given me a fresh new look on the bike. I have at­tached a photo. Many thanks. Craig Beech, Bil­ston, West Mid­lands
