It's been a few years now but maybe it may have surfaced? My '98 R1 was stolen off the footpath in St Kilda (Alma Road) during an evening thunderstorm. It is was originally the white with red trim model but the panel beater that owned it before me changed all the red trim to a mid blue. It would be the only one in the world with this colour combo. My mods were... Ohlins rear shock. White Power rear spring (white). One-off Daytona steering damper mounted across the front of the headstem. Chrome Tingate handlebars. Megacycle oval titanium muffler. Rear rim had been cut & welded to reduce width down to 5.5" (the only one in the world). I'll pay $1000 for any info that leads to the return of it.
