Our Third 888 Corsa here is in fact a late 926 Corsa , BSB bike new ex Moto-Cinelli 1993 .

This is my tribute to Grahame Richie , built from his chassis used up till his death at Brand Hatch WSB round .

He was i believe the last person to Qualify in a WSB race on a 888 - that says something about the man in my book .

I'd Known him and Claire his wife for a while , and was watching the race with her when it all went very wrong .

Claire and Alec ( Grahame's mechanic ) gave me the chassis later when they stripped the bike for parts , and i made a supermono replica out of it !

( more of that later ....)

Recently i decided to rebuild it as a 926 and started collecting parts .....

Here's where we are with it now . 

Any other period pics would be greatfully recieved to go with it's history file  !
