    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 :1drink

    You did an amazing resto! :clap:thumb
    Always loved that paint scheme. I had a 73 TX500 with the same graphics.

    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!:freaky

    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?

    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:D

    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.:D

    I purchased this one owner R75/6 this fall from an elderly gentleman that unfortunately had to stop riding because of poor health. He is of German decent and laughed when he gave me the shop manual and I discovered that it was competely in German. I have been riding an F650GS (that sounds like a generator) for a few years and a KLR before that and wanted something different and classic. It rides and sounds like a motorcycle should. I would have posted images here but don't know how. (now I do thanks to Greg)
