    I ride a 1975 cb125 I restored with my gramps. Its fun, yeah it aint the sports bike I want but its a good bike. I have put almost 3000 miles on it since December. You might have seen me once or so. I ride with a yellow mohawk.

    In that era of bike - I had a 73 or 74 Kawi 125 Enduro that I turned into an "MX" bike -
    Before that was an SL 100 Honda - AS I remember, there was the SL, the CL and road version, CB...
    Have fun out there - look for the RED Monster with the OLD guy with a Yellow Lid ....

    grabbing this old school Yamaha today! I'm going to have to put some work in to make it a decent runner and looker before I sell it. I sold a few of these when they were new while working at Lynnwood Yamaha :mrgreen:

    Its a 81 XV920RH Euro, often mistaken for a virago or called a seca...In Europe it was sold as a TR1. It only came to the US in 81/82 and instead of a cruiser stance it was a bit more of a "sport" stance and it had an enclosed chain drive vs shaft and 18" rear vs 16" on a Virago..

    Here's a shot as it sits, I will post up progress soon

    I've got a 1975 shovel head, bought it brand new in 1975. It is one of my get-back-on-the-road projects.

    Here is the bike I rode to Vashon Island from Vancouver (WA) last year right after we finished rebuilding it. It's just about the only vintage bike I have that is still almost bone-stock. Next week the back way around the east side of Mt. St. Helens is supposed to open again to Randle, which is the route I like to take to Seattle, via US12 west to Morton and the north on 7 through Elbe to Spanaway. If I'm in town and the weather is nice I'll probably ride it up for the next Backfire Moto night:

    I like what you've done to her! Pedestrian cutter is a nice touch as are the wrapped pipes. Are those the short shocks? Looks good!8)
