This bad boy belonged to Pete Licht, AFM #158, who was kind enough to sell it to me in 2007 so that I could get back into road racing again. The FZR's had a hard life like all good race bikes so, it's not much to look at but, it handles pretty good - just try not to drag those engine cases!

Pete runs a brewery called, "Coast Range" out of Gilroy, CA (See below) so buy lots of his beer!
