Mike was the head mechanic at the local yamaha shop at the time.
i knew someone else had to see the likeness.
my plans are, detail it, figure out the front cylinder noise, put some super bike bars on it and ride it. the starter is good on this one. its a real 4,000 mile bike that i'm in cheap enough in to mess around with. good power, i think i read they were 64 horsepower or so. i know it will flat spank my 2010 883 iron.
