There have been so many tribute shows of the Little Master on TV. In one footage of his wedding, I saw Sachin get out of a red esteem fully draped in wedding clothes. Could it be his brothers?

I think he had an Esteem for some time. If my memory serves me right, it was gifted to him.

After opening the engine, MSD's comment about it, "Have to clean these two, this will be my 1st ever restoration work."

I didn't say his name was on the car. I said his initials are apparently monogrammed in a few places. Also a friend saw it at his house 3 days ago, and I'm pretty sure he knows his cars.

There was no replacement to the 7 and hence he has kept it. I beg to differ here..he does not like his name being on the car. He still has the 730ld.

Yes, even the i-drive controller has beautiful Steinway monograms. BTW, todays Mumbai Mirror has images of the celebrities who attended Sachin's party. What car is Farhan Akhtar driving?

Are these the same bikes? It looks like Rajdoot became Yamaha. Which one is his first bike - Rajdoot or Yamaha? Or did I miss something?

The same question I asked on the forum. But didn't get any answer. If you compare both the bike closely, it looks like both are same only name is different.

Guys, RD350 used to come with Rajdoot logo as OEM.
Almost 99.9% of the owners replaced it with Yamaha(Which made more sense)

I believe the Yamaha RD350 was sold in India with the Rajdoot branding. Though purists always refer it as Yamaha.

Um no. Maybe he has got a new 7? Also don't think there is a Steinway edition with the facelifted 7 (which was what our friend saw at his house).
