VTR1000SP1 scans from the May 2000 bikers station mag

Just picked up this pretty rare mag for the VTR1000SP stuff of course!
not many photos,but maybe some new ones.
The kit bike looks pretty cool.
Pretty sure this muffler might have been made by Endurance (HRC do that at the start sometimes,to make sure everything fits and has the best power etc,then they send the blueprints to akrapovic or whoever to make their kit and works systems.
Notice the nice mega expensive SP1 kit swingarm,which is made from machined aluminium pieces(not stamped aluminium)
and notice the funky mufflers on Haydens(Actually Duhamel's bike)
and also the 22 litre sprint petrol tank (made by beater-same as what we sell now)
also shame my new canon printer/scanner is not very fine...might have to invest in a high quality scanner(and I thought they were getting better at this..)

Air box has it's own lid, radiator kit uses the stock SP1 oil rad, rear caliper's mount bracket has nowhere to fit in on the inside of the swingarm(!!!) and the front forks' caliper brackets' mounts on this picture is totally different compares with this picture



Any insights, I am all eyes and ears....

The white bike is a prototype kit bike for the Japanese race series and selected international teams. Forks are Shows SPL like the kit ones but with different lowers(they aren't quick release 8 hour items but factory sprint/JSB
Rear caliper mount is probably an NL6 based item/prototype?
I like the brake lever on that bike,so should have Written factory effort machine not just a kit bike.

Biker station Japan
I think May 2000.
pretty hard to come by being 13 years old,but must still be some more about.
Best Japanese bike mag by far,although been tough for all of them the last few years as nothing really to get excited about,so most of them have had a retro bend(testing old race bikes and the like)
