3. Bubba’s RS750


Bubba Shobert used this handbuilt flat-tracker (or one very like it) to win the Grand National Championship in 1985, ’86 and ’87, before changes in the AMA rulebook for ’88 caused Honda to call it quits. Shobert was on his way to possibly even greater things on pavement when a nasty collision on the cool-down lap at Laguna Seca cut his career short a couple of years later. It was all going Honda and Bubba’s way for awhile there, and very cool while it lasted.
