This machine is a reproduction built in New Zealand using a Honda CX500 V-twin engine, and has travelled over 70,000km. The bodywork is hand-crafted in aluminium and is a faithful representation of the original Quasar.
At low speeds the long wheelbase hinders handling, but at speed it handles and corners as well as the best sports motorcycles of the day.
Of the 22 original Quasars built, 21 are still in use.
