Sticky issue

Dear CR
I have just received my issue of Classic Racer with a wonderful photo of Mick Doohan on his Rothmans Honda (p54/55) and on the lower fairing is a sticker for SAK who were a sponsor of the Rothmans team.

On the sticker there is some wording beneath the letters SAK. My question is: are you able to read this on the original photo? I have tried with a magnifying glass on the picture in the magazine but can’t quite make it out.

The reason I ask is that I am currently working on a Freddie Spencer tribute bike based on a 1988 Honda RS250 and this is one of the stickers on the bike which I am currently trying to reproduce, but the lettering eludes me.

I have scoured the internet and can find absolutely no trace of SAK so have no idea who or what they were. Sorry to be a nuisance but any help would be most appreciated.

Kind regards and thanks for a great magazine.

Dave Clark.

No problem at all Dave, we would love to see the bike when complete – please send us photos when you’re happy with the project. To help you… on the fairing side, underneath the word SAK is the word RADIATOR. Tony
