    Not interested to share more pictures with us?
    With some information?

    Because that is a really nice collection you have.

    Is it that difficult to sell the SP2 over there?

    Nux-

    There is a very small market for Corse's in the US. It took me three years to sell my SP2- most prospected buyers wanted a very low mileage version- they were worried about "investment". I rode my SP2 since '97 so I had about 23K Km on the clock which killed every deal even when I offered it at $12K. Plus most really wanted to find an SP3 and were looking at the SP2 only if it was cheaper and fewer miles.

    Finally found a great new caretaker who was actually looking for an SP2 and bought it without haggling about price-- very old school in the fact he was just happy to have found one he could buy.


    Here are a few pictures-- Which span many years. #18 was the number I used on the track and I had it on my white frame '94 which I built from parts and on my 955 Corse raced by Tim McCartney in '94

    The black Corse I rode on the street for years-- but last year I converted it back to full track trim since no one was interested in buying it.

    What year is the first one pictured. Is that bike still in that configuration?

    Yes- this is Doug's #2 1993 AMA championship bike.

    Here is a youtube video I took after I just finished rebuilding the 955 motor--first startup.

    Thank you-- I like to keep the original patina as much as I can. On my '89 Works and my '91 Customer Racing I had to repaint the frames because past owners made a mess painting over the original paint on the '89 and I had to cut and straighten the frame on the '91. Lucky I have a spray booth so I do not farm out any of my restoration work.
