The guys at Icon recovered this 1990 GSX-R 750 from an impound lot, restoring it to near-stock glory with the help of some new Airtech plastics, a Racefit silencer and Pirelli Diablo slicks. Not only does it make us pine for our old '94 Evo 'Blade replica, but brutish, uncomplicated '90s sportsbikes in general.
We're constantly impressed with the diverse motorcycle taste
demonstrated by Icon; it ranges from the completely ridiculous Warthog ZX-10R to the Harajuku-ready Rockets Dead Glare Honda Reflex, but is
always utterly awesome. While we're a bit perplexed by its range of
products -- items like the Pursuit and TRX gloves are incredibly cool,
but stuff like the Death or Glory jackets make us retch -- Icon has some
of the best advertising in the industry. The burnout shot above (click
for a large version) is a great example, perfectly embodying an
aspirational lifestyle its products are attempting to exemplify.
