Hey guys, first post on this site, although I've bee reading for a couple months. There's a lot of very cool bikes in this thread. Here's my addition:

1976 Yamaha RD400





And my second bike, a not-so-old 1989 Honda NSR250. This bike needs some work, aesthetically speaking anyway.





Still own and really enjoy riding both of these old 2-strokes.

A fresh tire would probably enhance your riding enjoyment...

That has got to be the only NSR250 in Saskatchewan!

Where do you ride it?

Ya, I don't imagine there are too many of them kicking around this part of the world. I just ride it around Saskatoon. I've thought about selling it because this bike really does belong on the track and I'm not going to race it, but dammit it's too much fun. Quite frankly I'm surprised it hasn't gotten me in any trouble yet. She's really only happy when accelerating. On the pipes to 12000 rpm she just sings

That looks like a pair of well-loved motorcyles.

I picked up this 75' Norton a few months ago and then decided to do a frame up on it after sorting through all the oil leaks.

After going through the complete bike I am putting it back with a few updates, probably be a week before it will be on the road

Is one of the updates the disc brake on the rear wheel?
