SHOWCASE

Hi, it’s the Tamiya Yamaha FZR750R (OW01). Kit number 14058. Released in 1989. I built the kit in 2001. It took a few weeks to finish. It survived (mostly) quite a few house movings since then. E.g. the side stand is gone. The decals and the paint didn’t age very well at some places. Painted with Tamiya pure white spray can. The checkered flag is also painted. The original plan was to build a cafe racer/stunt bike but then I just put the clear plastic fairings on. That’s why only a few decals were used.
The frame and engine is painted with Tamiya TS-17 aluminium silver. The disc brakes are drilled by hand.
