RC51 for cheap lol

My friend Tom Moffit (greyhound) as many of you have met down at Jennings, had a pretty bad get off. He is an instructor and aslo gets around the track pretty well for his age. Actually he is a mid level advance rider. Well any other guy would bounce back from a crash as Tom usually does but this one has kept him down for a while. He just got out of the hospital as he needed his shoulder put back together. At 72 years old this guy is on tough guy. To see his bike come back in the crash truck brought a tear to my eye as the 20k dollar bike was in shambles. Its not the first time one of his bikes have been like this and it wont be the last. Here are some pics form his last rebuild and the way it looked before and after the last crash. Enjoy. Also to know Tom if he has any type of scratch on his bike he repaints or replace the part. LOL He is a little anal!

Everyone thought that was you at first. Tom is tough as nails. He's made me rethink my goals in life. I now want to still be riding the track at 70.

Tom is on the front row on the right. This was at the Barber weeknd for our private RC51.org event a couple of years ago.


Then at Road Atlanta last spring. You might recognize a couple of people from the board in this photo (eviltwinn, G2G, Jenya, Speedkills second to right). Tom is the guy in the middle and Pete the guy who runs the trackdays is on the right.

the hand polishing on that exhaust is unbelievable. Ridiculously good attention to detail it seems, hope he heals up well.

You should see his shop and trailer along with his other 10 bikes. You thought you died and gone to heaven.

Whoa, what does he do and how does he manage to stay fit enough to ride track at 72?

He plans on rebuilding it. Give him 6 months and it will look pristine again.
