Rock on!
Welcome to the site.
What part of Houston are you in?


Having the project is what makes me happy, finishing it isn't something I think about.

Re: 1974 Yamaha Moto-Bike

saw the pine knew it before i read the description. nothing compares to riding 30+ miles in a subtropical swamp land at 100 degrees with 85% humidity, i ride in it every day with love and anticipation, anything less saddens me

Re: 1974 Yamaha Moto-Bike

I would ride down the street about five houses and jump garbage cans about 20 feet long on a standard bike.  I thought I was evil knevil and my dad came home with one just like this one.  I loved that bike and rode it all the time.  I recently saw it at my parents garage and I am rebuilding it for my son.
