I can get my hands on this for almost nothing. Trying to figure out if it's the real deal or just a graphics kit.
I can't see it first hand, someone sent me the picture. No AMA sticker on the frame and don't see tabs welded for the skid plate. Also stock wheels, brakes, and foot pegs. I don't believe it's the real deal, but some of you may know better than I.

Could be a practice bike. If you can get it for almost nothing grab it anyways no?

Edit: just checked who would of rode the number 9 back then and no one was on a Honda. Mike Brown was the last guy to run the number 9 on a Honda in the 90's. He rode with it in 1996. My opinion just a graphic kit.

Are those die cast clamps or machined? In the pic they look die cast. Overall I'm going to say no that's not a Plano Honda bike.

It's got Subway stickers, so I'm guessing it could've been one of Jacki Short's Plano bikes from back in her WMA days. I remember her running a big font, single digit number, but can't remember for sure if she was #9 one year or not... I think she was?

It was a bike that my daughter Jacki Hudson Short rode WMA nationals on for Plano Honda.

Had someone else tell me it could be Jacki's as well. There wasn't anything really trick to her bikes though.

Can you PM me the seller's contact info on this bike if it is for sale? I have a 2001 Plano Honda race bike that I have rebuilt which is in the Bike Builds forum and would like that seat as a spare along with the suspension possibly. I would buy the whole bike though.

I meant to upload a photo of my bike in my previous post.

It's at a Goodwill in Austin, I'm not joking. He said it's the location on 183 and Balcones. They are auctioning the bike and it ends Saturday. Current bid is $50 and I doubt it will go much, if any, higher. I'm not going to mess with it. If it was a SX bike with the AMA sticker and suspension, I would be all over it.

No engine unfortunately. That's the main reason I'm not going to mess with it.

Thank you. I'm not far from there right now and will check it out tomorrow.

Beautiful. I always thought the Plano bikes were the best looking bikes in the pits back then.
