1. Kawasaki - GPZ900R (1985)
The GPZ900R is the Top Gun Replica Bike - Tom Cruise rode this model of motorbike in the famous film.
2. Harley Davidson California Cruiser - Heritage Softail (1988)
This bike was purchased in 2011 in the USA for a trip to Sturgis. Darren and his wife Kim rode the bike around the States for 5 weeks, then brought it back to Australia. The bike was previously owned by an Elite Baseball player in the USA.
3. Ducati - MHR 900SS (1981)
The Mike Haliwood Replica Ducati was built to celebrate Mike the Bike's comeback at the 78 Isle of Man TT - with only 200 being built in 1979. The bike is all original with kick start only and no side stand, owning Jeff for over 20 years. The Ducati has come down to Phillip Island many times from Sydney and the love for this bike by Mr. Holt is summed up by his comment "when I die I want to be buried next to her"
4. Yamaha - RD350 (1974)
A classy, two-stroke motorcycle that evolved directly from the piston port, front drum-braked, five-speed Yamaha 350 cc "R5".
5. Honda - Motocompo (1982)
Designed to fit inside the boot of a small car, this unique and rare Japanese bike weighs around 45kgs. It's powered by Honda's well-proven 50cc air-cooled two-stroke single and has a single-speed transmission with automatic clutch operation. Bianca had this one fully restored and painted Cadbury purple for her daughter.
