    Did about 350 miles today. Saw a ton of you FF's today on my ride, but every single time you guys were parked outside a coffee shop. PFFTTT, slackers!

    That is quite possibly the worst section of highway to speeding down. People blindly merge from the on-ramp across to the boulder transition. I've been cut off way too many times coming through there.

    What bike is this and what might one sitting in the weeds be worth? I have no idea what condition it's in. Hard to find parts for?

    It looks suspiciously like a Spagthorpe. If so, it's a valuable rare find.

    Looks like an old Yamaha or Bridgestone 2 stroke twin, in the 175cc range most likely.

    There are loads of them out there. There was even a wikipedia entry out for about a year. Born from the twisted minds of rec.motorcycles, here is one of my favorites.

    Much like pictures of the Spagthorpe, surviving documentation is usually missing or out of focus.

    the swingarm is a stamping, not like the YAS1's tube steel

    YI1 Twinjet is what it looks like to me
