Here's mine

Here's mine:





I can't wait to get it on the road. Unfortunately I don't think it will be before the end of the summer. I definitely have a ton of day trips planned for it including a bunch of trail riding in George Washington National Forest in VA and in the state WMA in Allegheny County, MD. The thing is a beast, it wants to lift the front tire going into 3rd! Here is a link to a video from when I first started it:

I take it that bike was run in the AMA's flat track H-D 883 spec series from some years back?

Saw this at the annual "Ride into History" event at WGV in St. Augustine, FL. 1972 Yamaha RT-360; pretty stock sans Hagon shocks, redone forks and a low pipe by circle F with a one-off tail section. Needs a little sorting, but starts and runs like a top. Liked it so much, I ended up buying it! Brought it home today.





Should look good next to:



and...



in the garage. It's a bumble-bee invasion!
