Gallery: Barry Sheene's championship-winning bikes

We all know the story of Barry Sheene's 500cc Grand Prix world championship success in 1976 and 1977 - at least from the rider's point of view. But the rider is only half the story. Sheene also needed the right bikes underneath him to make it happen and these are the two machines that took him to his two world titles.


They're currently in the UK on kind loan from the Sheene family residence in Australia and MCN was given exclusive access to the bikes.

We spent the morning poring over Sheene's RG500s in minute detail.
