Today has been all about this for me .... Old Skool ... and yes, I actually said that. Saw one of these pull up in a petrol station when I was a much younger guy riding a crappy old GP100 along with his equally low-rent mates on similarly crappy little bikes. The Big Gixer was the coolest thing in the world back then: A last crazy, over-the-top roar from the bike world before new constraints on capacity and power came in. A creaky old guy got off the one I saw all those years ago and we were amazed. Yes, I probably am that old guy now. What he didn’t tell us - or know, back then - is that the bike’s pretty bad in many ways: The front wheel’s too small, the suspension too lazy but the engine was and is a masterpiece that has inspired a million specials. Spent the day on, off and near it and loved every second.

  • I have a picture of one just like it that took of one here in town where I live. They were definitely a start to the modern sport bike.
