Kocinski's Wood Rotax

Is this the prettiest Wood Rotax ever? So beautifully put together. The exhaust has that unusual run, along the right hand lower frame rail, because this is one of Ron Wood's monoshocks with the RSU under the engine, early-Buell -style.

It belongs to former 250 grand prix world champion and multiple 500 GP racewinner, John Kocinski. He holds a couple of outright lap records on short tracks, set within the last few years, not in his racing heyday.

I interviewed him at Pomona a while ago, for a major motorcycle title who made a clichéd dog's dinner of it and I was embarrassed at the outcome. Maybe it's time to put it in Sideburn and make it sing... G

Correct! The best looking Rotax out there! :-) So factory support looking and with all the right bits. Love it! His CR250 would be nice in a video too....

Neatest dirt track ever! Sure is time to uncover thagt interview with Mr Kocinski, a real talent and peculiar character. I loved it when he used to beat the competence with that beautiful Cagiva......
