Miniature RC's

I forgot that I have 3 other RC's

Group shot:



1/32nd scale

1/16th scale

and a cpl. shots of the 1/12th scale race bike. I believe this was the Bostrom numbers back in the day.


I picked these up years ago at Mid Ohio at the Superbike races. Pretty detailed for what they are. Don't know if you can still find them anywhere or not.

2000 RC51 - stock owned since new 5/2000
2006 RC51 - 2nd owner purchased 4/2015 with 1400 miles
1996 CBR900RR - mild resto/mod - done spring 2012
1990 Honda VFR - original stock owned since 1991
1975 Kawasaki S3 - restored in 2004-5 (sold 10-17)
2003 Kawasaki ZX7R - bought 10/2018
2007 Honda Interceptor 25th Anniversary purchased 7/2014
1972 Honda Mini Trail - 1st restoration in 1992, and 2016 restored to like new condition. (sold 2/18)

Those look like SP1's, obviously worth less than comparable SP2's. ;-)

Question

Ben Bostrom ran the number 155 in 2003 so I think that would be a S2 wouldn't it?

The wheels are SP1 wheels, the swingarm looks sorta SP2ish, everything else is too blended to tell ... must have crashed and bent the forks, since those are the wrong color. I suspect Chinese plastics too.

You figure when you spend $10 at least they could get things right..
