ISR (or the ultimate barn find)

Believe it or not, there are still "barn finds" out there. This is a racing bike build by the famous swedish company ISR. Known mostly for their greate brakes. They build about 60 chassis for different engines in the early eighties, before the japs started with their R bikes.

This bike, with a Motospeed tuned GSX 1100 engine, was sitting in a garage only a few kilometrs from where i live. For over twenty years. Lucky for me the owner has decided to sell it. And i picked
it up in a hurry. Had to wait two hours for him to find all the parts. In the first picture it was just like American pickers. But it was all there.
This is Swedish racing history....
