Paton 500cc 2-stroke updated "replica"(ish) racebike

I ... I... I don't have the words...

Caption from Motorcycle Daily:
Ever felt the need to swing a leg over a raw and brutal 500cc, 180 HP two stroke GP racer? Paton used to run a private effort in the 90’s against the might of the Big four, in 500 GP. But unlike NSR500’s and YZR500’s, new replicas of the amazing Paton are still made in Italy by the son of Giuseppe Pattoni, the Paton’s founder. Not for the meek.

Honda Racing Porn courtesy of Mike "Stu" Stuhler! Garry McCoy's Honda NSR500V Big Twin

Mike "Stu" Stuhler of the always excellent StuShots just dropped these awesome pics of Garry McCoy's Honda NSR500V on me. Mike I'm pretty sure I missed them the first go around. Thanks very much for re-sending them!

Mike Writes:

Hey Steve!

Here are some shots I took again over at Mid Ohio in '07 of
Garry McCoy's Honda NSR500V Big Twin as it was on display,
and on sale, in the paddock area.
As the links attached show, this was as it was in the trim
as he raced it in the Australian GP in late '98 and 8 other
rounds that year per the 3rd link on his bio. From the
sign on the bike you can see they did spell his name wrong,
but I still would suspect that this is the real deal.
I have been wrong before, though! HA! I did find
a shot of the orig on Google search and it sure looks the
real deal! Nonetheless it is a sweet looking ride and I hope
you enjoy it!
This guy was such a pleasure to watch, and he always did
the best rolling spins in the corner and in the 500 era he
would just hammer them. It probably isn't too hard to
find vids of him on YouTube with a little work!

Radical Stretched Kawasaki H2

While it's not exactly my cup of tea there's still a lot of quality fabrication work in this custom.

Hi Steve ,

Sorry for my English.

David Your English is excellent! You also speak the language of "motorcycle" very well! thank you for the great pictures! That's a fantastic build!
