80's production turbo motorcycles are this weeks conversation piece
Show Notes

This week we look at the wonderful period of time in the early 80's when each of the big 4 Japanese bike manufacturers had a go at turbocharging production street bikes. 

Honda had their CX500 and CX650 Turbos, Yamaha had their XJ650 Turbo. Suzuki had the XN85 and Kawasaki finished up this rather odd experiment with their wonderful GPZ 750 Turbo.

Loads of bike chat and turbo fun!
