Video: Barry Sheene's 500 stroker on the Visordown stageMon, 30 Nov 2009
We've got a real treat for you on the Visordown stage at the NEC Bike Show. It's the ridiculously gorgeous Akai Yamaha, ridden by Barry Sheene and now owned by Chris Wilson.
Niall Mackenzie and Jamie Whitham fire it up 3 times a day, just before one of our feature shows. So if you're going to the NEC, don't leave until you've witnessed that crisp angry two-stroker, it's proper!
