Suzuki GS1000R factory racer. It won the Endurance Championship in 1983 with Hervé Moineau and Richard Hubin. Was the last 1000cc winner before the new 750cc rules kicked in.

Shame on me, my heart is black.

yes. A lot of the frame and engine development went into the GSXR.

quacker998 - bike is a Norton rotary, rider is Paul Lewis (Australian rider). (Thanks to RAZR51 for suggesting that the name on the leathers is, indeed, Lewis) I remember Paul Lewis rode a Norton rotary.

The ugly red bike shown by PeePee is a Honda 250 Four. Cannot possibly be anything else.

It's the infamous Ferrari bike. It was actually made by David Kay and I still struggle to understand what's its appeal.

OK give it a shot.
A Maico open class motocrosser, not sure the model, a 490 perhaps.
A Honda CR110 early 1960's GP race bike, 50 cc.
A Yoshimura modified, or limited production, version of the Suzuki Katana.

I have also been enjoying this thread.

And while we're at it let's not forget Lambo's attempt at biking (couldn't find a better pic with the headlight in it's ON position.
Ugly duckling.











Next, I believe it's going to be easy for you, so whoever solves this also needs to give us some history of the thing:
