You shoulda checked his balls, that would put things in better proportion.
Joking aside, what a legendary mc icon and still fit as a fiddle !
He was racing in the 50+ expert class and one or two others on borrowed bikes...and was actually racing pretty damn good think he was 2-3rd in his firts heat but later in the day had two bikes go down in front of him and he ended up taking a digger that rung his bell a little so he decided to call it quits for the day...cant blame him he is getting up there in age the brain aint something you want to mess with.
This thing looks great! More pics/details would be welcome.
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:

The mods were done over a two year period beginning in 2004. My son, who lives in Indiana, now owns the bike.
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:
in the garage. It's a bumble-bee invasion!
Wow! Really nice...
Thanks NCGS, nice bike!
I want another two stroke single flat tracker again to ride on the street! That 360 looks great. I remember doing some back roads on the sly when we were riding the short trackers from one place to another.. You could get away with that back in the early 70s to some extent.
Wait a minute--that's a new unit Enfield, isn't it?
and too pretty for mud.
