Latus Motors Gary Nixon Triumph Tribute Bike, Daytona 2012

Well, this is news from last year, I admit, but I just saw the Latus Motors (Gladstone, OR) Gary Nixon Triumph 675 roadracer tribute bike in the new edition of Cycle World magazine. Bike and rider Jason DiSalvo sported Nixon's old AMA plate number, 9, for the 2012 Daytona 200... DiSalvo's assigned AMA plate number is 40, but he was allowed to use plate number 9 for just this race, the season opener.

DiSalvo had a thrilling finish, making up a deficit of 26seconds over the course of 25 laps to take second place a bike length behind Joey Pascarella on the Project 1 Atlanta Yamaha R6. See the finish and hear DiSalvo reminisce about the race in the video embedded below.

DiSalvo was the winner of the 2011 Daytona 200 --- go here to see the video of the incredible, crazy finish of that race. Awesome.
