In 1984, this was about as exotic as it got: Flyin’ Fred’s factory Superbike stuffed full of HRC parts and rolling on Comstar wheels. FF won the AMA title in ’84, ’85 and ’86 (the ’86 VFR is tucked away in back of the museum too), before heading off to win World Superbike in ’88 and ’89 on an RC30.

The old VF750 is stuck at 150 mph in perpetuity.
