First off – that’s a genuine 1997 Splitfire Pro Circuit 125 Kawasaki. Secondly, that is indeed Mitch Payton next to it. Brian took his pride and joy to Seattle Supercross 2018 for Mitch and the team to see.
Recognise the guy stood with the 500 Honda? Brian built this awesome bike for Steve Lamson to keep as his very own show piece. Replicated like his 1993 machine.
Now, recognise the guy with the 1987 Honda CR250? That’s Ken Roczen posing with that beautiful machine. The question is, would Ken prefer the ‘87 over his 450? – of course he would.
