Remember the bike speedplay owner Richard Byrne created in 2001 that weighed 4800g (10.5lbs)? Well, it got some heat. OK, it got alot of heat. Heres whats left of a $15K bike after a fire in his 3 story house burned down. All that remains is charred titanium and melted carbon fiber. Lets have a moment of silence, for one of the lightest bikes in the world is no longer with us. :cry:

I had a conversation with Richard at the 2004 show. For the record this bike was not his but a friend he rides with.
