Head down WFO throttle.
It became an 8x10 on his wall at the shop.
Sometime around the summer of 1975.
A year later, I would pick up a 250 scrambler that was destined to have a 450 desmo top, and some other go faster parts bolted on.

Then some guy offered me way too much money for it within ear-shot of my wife the accountant.

Pfft! There went my dreams of roadracing glory.

Ah, well I sold the bike for $250 after paying $20 for it and spending just short of $4 fixing it. Broken throttle cable though the previous owner thought for sure the engine was blown.

Doesn't look like a race bike here,
