Need To Rent Three Sportbikes For Photo Shoot - Pays $250


We Need One More Bike - Any Kawi Sportbike - I Need 1 Pic Over 100KB Asap
We Need One More Bike - Any Kawi Sportbike - I Need 1 Pic Over 100KB
AsapHere is the deal - You all may have seen the "Allstate agents that ride" print ad campaign over the last few years. They are shooting new ads for that campaign, and as many of the agents live all over the country and are flying in for the shoot, they need to rent bikes for the week of May 10th - 15th. The reason I am posting here is that they want bikes that have been ridden. Here is the list of bikes that we need: 1 Busa - 1 GSXR600 - 1 ZX12R - 1 Royal Star (I know it is not a sportbike, but there are lots of riders on here)

The shoot is in the west loop. We need the bikes dropped of at my shop, Motoworks Chicago, at 1901 S Western Ave, 60608, by Sunday the 9th at the latest. The bikes will not be ridden. They will be transported to the shoot via my trucks and trailers, and brought back to my shop for the owners to pick up between that Wednesday and Friday. Pay is $250. Bikes are insured.

As far as who I am - Johnny Scheff - owner of Motoworks Chicago - If Ernie is still on here he knows me from track days way back when, we are the Vespa dealer for Chicago, and we do lotsa beemer work. I got the gig as bike logistics coordinator as one of my customers is shooting the gig. Please email me at [email protected] with any questions.

Thanks for all of the replies - Anyone interested please send me 2-3 pics of your bike - the more neutral the background the better, but don't get hung up on that. Thanks for all of the interest.

Apologies if this is in the wrong section - I wasn't quite sure sure where yall would want it. Take Care - Johnny

Sounds cool. Wish I had a newer/cleaner bike to contribute for this. I look forward to seeing some member bikes on the back of my cycle world magazines in the future!

Johnny, I've met you a few times through my buddy Brice. I have a GSXR 600, unfortunately I lowsided at road america this past weekend. However, if you only need the left hand side of the bike you can use it. There's a small chance the bike will also be fixed by then.

If you want to swap a ZX-10R for that 12R you can use mine.

That's good - please send pics - these are ad people picking the bikes, not bike people, so a couple hundred cc's may not be that big of a thing.

I'm the wrong person to tell that, most likely are my bikes ridden harder than 75% of the bikes on here...
I would also offer the 1098 but all I have at the moment is the Plastic...
