I'm still here BC.  Th knees are being a bit dodgy right now and slowing things a bit.  I'm putting a blower on to see what happens.  Also a new nose.  Just that the damn knees are making it difficult. 





And in keeping with the ringy dingy theme of this thread.

The legendary V4 500 2-Stroke GP Race Replica from Yamaha, the Yamaha RD/RZ 500.
We've always dreamed about the 4 cylinder 500cc Grand Prix bikes, and having the opportunity to acquire and ride a replica made for Road/Street use was a tremendous experience.

That's a pretty radical RZ500 you had there!! Nice!!  :D  Does it have the aluminum frame or steel?

I remember well whan the first units arrived in Toronto. The shop I was getting some work done at recieved one of the first units. They were a well known race shop and specialized in Yamaha RD's, and RZ's. It was an amazingly dense package! Not a wasted bit of space between the axles!!



I had the chance to ride around CTMP in S. Ontario 2 years ago. They had a "track time" during the lunch break at the vintage races. I followed this around for a lap or so:













Not as radical as yours, but pretty nice! And clean as a whistle!!  8)

He wasn't interested in pushing it on the track though!! I passed him and his buddies with my "stone axe h2"!! I don't blame him at all though. It's way to nice to wreck pushing it beyond your comfort level.  :D

4mm stroked crank, Buell XB12R front end with a rim size brake rotor, a V-Rod headlight, swing arm from an RGV250, Triumph Daytona 675 shock absorber.
Possibly a 421cc big-bore in the future.
