model: 750 V7 SPORT

country: Sacramento, California - USA

frame number: VK13025

name: Mark D


notes: In Mark's own words: "I bought it in Spangdahlem Germany in 1980. It was disassembled by a shop in Luxembourg because of transmission problems. The previous owner (US Air Force person) paid for the disassembly and diagnosis, but could not afford to have it repaired. I bought it for $350.

Modifications:" I bought used parts from GAWA in Saarbrueken Germany. They helped me with transmission reassembly. I also purchased the Stucchi LeMans fairing from them. It had been on their rally racer. I painted the tank and sidecovers to look more like a LeMans. It was previously the yellow-green color. I rode around the old Nurburgring on this bike during an Elephanten-Treffen."

What happened to it?: "It is still in my garage in Sacramento California. I ride it, but it is not my primary transportation. I used to ride it every day to the university in Sacramento. The brakes really need work."
