Its.......A FACT!

WHAT GOOD IS IT?, Your kidding right, with rarity of a true Grandprix twostroke 500? What, that isnt enough? Adding on top of the fact that you never see V3' twostrokes specially in that era or to many other eras, and then just to seal the deal it was riding by Aoki. I remember when he was coming up through the ranks from a family of three boys that all raced. He was going to be the next big-thing, until he died either testing or racing. Who knows maybe it was this exact bike, and its been repaired now what's it worth?




-I've ridden 250's, I can't imagine a 500.

Greatest rider you never heard of.

Actually, I am surprised you never heard of him. I have, and I don't even know jack about MC racing! (according to Moke)

There was a stretch of 10-15 years I wasn't paying attention to m/c racing. Or motorcycles at all, for that matter. In my biography it will be called "The Yachting Years." In Kirk's bio they'll call the same period "The Decades of Volvo."

Takuma Aoki (青木 拓磨, Aoki Takuma?, born February 24, 1974 in Tokyo) is a former Grand Prix motorcycle road racer from Japan. He began his Grand Prix career in 1993. From 1994 to 1996, Aoki competed in the World Superbike Championship, winning one race in that series.[1] He returned to Grand Prix racing with Honda in 1997, enjoying his best season when he finished fifth in the 500cc world championship.[2] A spinal injury in a 1998 motorcycle crash left him paralyzed below the waist. Aoki has continued to work with Honda, helping them develop cars for disabled people.[3] He is the brother of Grand Prix racers, Nobuatsu and Haruchika Aoki.

Aoki has recently been involved in motorsports again. Using specially-modified 4-wheel drive vehicles, he has been involved in many cross country rallies, notably the Dakar Rally and the Asia Cross Country Rally.[4][5]
