    Anybody ever heard of a dealer named Stramm Yamaha? I think the address was 325 South Locust Street, Centralia, Illinois. Google says there is an antique store there now, called Collectic Designs.

    This is idle curiosity. There is a dealer sticker on my 1975 RD250 that is worn nearly smooth. I tried to read the ghost images of the letters and I think I have it right. Anyway, does it ring a bell with anyone?

    The tag I'm talking about is on the side cover here:

    This bike has been sitting along the wall for the past three years while I finished up another project. I just rolled it out in the middle of the floor to fill the space where the other bike had been, and got to wondering about that sticker.
