Freddie Spencer was a racer from Shreveport, Louisiana who became the youngest ever Gran Prix world champion at the age of 21.
It must be mentioned that all his winning 2 stroke bikes (all the way back to the ’78 AMA 250 GP class) were tuned by Erv Kanemoto a fellow American (California) . Erv also tuned for Barry Sheene (when Freddie was racing AMA superbike), then with his own team (with backing from Rothmans and Honda) for Eddie Lawson winning the 500GP championship in ’89.
“The way Erv approached racing so professionally and with such dedication, I think it really built a solid team atmosphere,” Spencer said. “He was tireless in making sure everything was perfect for me when I went on the track.”
Mr Spencer is the only rider, to capture the 500GP and 250GP world championships in the same year (1985).
The bikes for sale are the 1983 Championship NS500 and his championship winning 1985 NSR250.
