Not quite sure what you mean.
A standard TZ750 is a lovely smooth pussycat.
I'm assuming it's a TR500 Replica because of the overall stance of the bike, width of the rims, the fact that it is using the TR500 colors, etc. I could be wrong, and it could be a TR250 Rep, but the TR250s had really skinny tires. It might also be an authentic TR500, it's almost impossible for me to tell with my limited knowledge. If it is a replica, it is very well done, as the frame has been built to match the TR frame, which had wider spacing on the top tubes and no taper like the T500 frames.

Yeah smooth as a pussy cat
From near "off" to full power in 2600 rpm or less
Granted you said ,standard, A standard TZ750 is a lovely smooth pussycat.
Fair enough. I suppose it's a moot point. Unless your going to buy it, it probably doesn't matter. No, I'll say it doesn't matter. If it keeps the owner happy, then that's enough. If it happens to be buike porn too, that's a bonus. A'd also suspect that, after this many years 'original' has to have the addendum 'specs'.
I wonder what other snaps I took of it? I want to use the same red on my RD project, whenigetaroundtuit.
Here's a couple of vintage two-stroke race bikes being campaigned this season with the AFM:
Tim has been racing this 1979 Yamaha RD350-based racebike all season, and has the Vintage Championship locked up ... I think the frame is a fancy-frame ...?
A couple of more pics of the Yamaha here (down the bottom of page).
Dave was racing this Kawasaki two-stroke triple at Thunderhill earlier in the season ...
see you in the paddock,
Reported for porn. God, that is pure sex. :eek1
Carlos Giro, I think. He rode for Aprilia from '92-'94.
My late brother bought this RD400f new back in 1979 and slowly turned it into a dedicated racer. It was last run at Willow sometime back in the late 80's and has been carted about the country in ever smaller boxes since.
After his passing last summer I decided it would be a nice tribute to put it back together again and get it back to the track. So far I have a dry assembled chassis and the engine is mostly together.... once I figure out what pistons to fit I can finish putting it back into one piece.
If anyone remembers seeing this bike in action I'd love to know about it.
Sounds like a fun bike.
I remember walking around the Barber Museum (all day...and not nearly enough time) and then seeing this bike. At that time, it was kinda tucked away and I remember thinking that it should've been more prominently displayed.
Anyhow, I was able to visit with Brian Slark about the bike. He told me they also have Saarinen's leathers from the '73 Daytona win. He said they looked like a thirteen year boy would have a hard time fitting into them. Jarno was a tiny dude!
Ho hum...another shot of Irv rebuilding the legendary Gary Nixon's works Suzuki in front of a cheap motel!
Priceless! What a shot!
