    Sorry Paul - date Im guessing its 1974 - Bike is a Kawasaki G4TR 100 split ratio - 10 speed - Re Headlight, yeh they kept popping out when riding around the bush at East Hills - We use to take the bikes across a footbridge over the Georges River and head to Menai and around Beauty Point - that was before Menai Stank of Chemical waste .. 2 things kept happening with the bike - being of course mild steel just about everything, the headlight frame would flex and the lens would fall out and also the baffle, being a 2 stroke it had to be cleaned fairly often, it was held in by about a 6mm phillips head screw that really was of little use so the baffle would just blow out - I bought the bike new from Adams and Sons Riverwood, I cant recall any warranty though

    Looks more like the AG 100 with that handlebar protection and steel carrier, + the fully enclosed chain, god I can still remember the corny ad on tv with some dude singing.

    The tv ad went something like, "riding round the farm on my AG100, working like I never could before, this Yamaha machine, it's the best I've ever seen, gets me where I wanna go...REAL QUICK". Sang with a real country twang. :lol3:photog:jack
    Some things just stay in the memory banks for some strange reason.

    1972 I think. Hard to believe I was EVER that young. 12 years old with ripple soled desert boots! Just out cruising to see if I could find any biker chicks.........maaaaan

    From that to XR75s and then a Suzuki TS400! Now that was an education in hurting yourself.

    Around November of 1974 at Naracoorte. An old XL250 from memory.

    That is a much skinnier me and I had long hair. 2.5 years later joined the Army and that was the last time I had long hair:lol3

    Now I'm a fat, balding old fart (pretty much like the rest of you guys :lol3:lol3:lol3)

    Steep indeed. Also taught me to rebuild motors as big yumps caused the chain to come off and break/crack the crankcase. It was my future Father-in-law's bike. The third time I put the chain through the crankcase, it stayed that way. The ONLY scar I've got from nearly 50 years of motorcycling was inflicted by that possessed bike. I put the footpeg through my calf muscle.
