Thank you. Actually, my 6'-2" 37" sleeve frame LOVED them, but EVERY time someone looked at the bike, a desparaging comment ensued. So, in the interest of originality, I endure the ergo's

Always loved that paint scheme. I had a 73 TX500 with the same graphics.

No thank you, Delmar.
One third of a gopher would only arouse my appetite without bedding it down.

Izat a '47 in the background? Nice TX500! They would howl when duly twisted, short stroke engine, as is the 750.

Kudos to my Nephew at DangerBoy Enterprises for the paintwork!

Why yes it is. My Dad worked for Delta at the Atlanta jet base. I came by to see him at work one day and they had just finished servicing a new 747 (circa 1974) and it was sitting on the tarmac. You couldn't get that close today.

You needed to abbreviate 747?

Nah, I chose to. Just wanted to show I was a real plane guy, you know.

My latest addition--
1971 JT1j import
Street legal version, lights, blinkers, rear pegs... Original condition, unrestored.. This was the very first bike I ever rode/owned. The old man brought it back with him from overseas back in 72'... Really happy to have this bike back

Extremely cool!

I love the international variations on the different models. I wonder why the Japanese thought that Americans weren't worthy of a yellow stripe on the tanks of our Mini Enduros?

This is my 82 Suzuki GS850G with an 81 tank on it, still looking for a tank to finish it up. Spent the last two years bring this great classic back to life. Even though now she is mechanically tip top, I frequently find myself out in the garage looking for what I can do to make her function better. A combination of capability and comfort makes this bike hard to stay off of.
