Help me find another one.

I'm trying to find another TX750 to build like the one I photoshopped below.
Anybody have one available ?

Is that a 34T XS650 rear sprocket for longer legs? Or smaller still?

Did you repaint yours or is that original paint ?
The oil cooler (Yamaha recall issue!) was on it when I got it. I added the balancer chain tensioner and the deep sump. That's a repaint... my nephew did it. LOTTA WORK! The same bike pictured above it in rattle can black... even the damned engine!

yeah, that's a 36t, replaced the stock 33t. I had a 38 on it but ran out of gears to quick.

Are those the stock discs drilled? If so, do you notice any improvement in the performance? They look good.

I never rode the bike before I drilled the rotors, so I don't know, but I would think there would be an improvement in the rain, the stock front brake was notoriously poor in the wet. Drilled rotors help to remove water quickly. And, yes they are the OEM rotors.

Good to know. I added the second disc to mine and noticed some improvement over the single. I had both discs surfaced and am considering drilling after I take care of some appearance items, like tank dents, paint, decals, and seat.

It's really great seeing people into these bikes years after they where just a footnote in Yamahas history, keep at it guys!

Here's one from the "Old's Cool" thread, someone thought it was Twiggy on it.

Looks like the '74 that I enjoyed for 8 years. Great same color. Put a lot of miles on the old TX living in Texas. Nice to see them still around. Never saw any on the road even in the 80's, but there was one in a Houston motorcycle yard that I got parts from.

Another old bike out of the boneyard - TX750

Here is my '73 that had sat in our barn for about 20 years.

Just planned on getting it running this year and ended up playing around with it a bit. Just a budget build to see if the engine would hold up this year.
