1974 Yamaha Moto-Bike Model A

Reliving my childhood, but this time I actually own one instead of just dreaming about it.

Frame popped up cheap on "For Sale" Forum and I just couldn't resist.

Didn't have any plans for the build other than trying to make it ridable...then I got excited by the build and this is what I ended up with.Kind of a mish-mash of eras for the parts, but it makes me smile.

A complete restoration, but with some modifications/upgrades, very similar to Sodbuster's. Probably change out to stiffer rear coil overs, run some Motomag II's, new yellow powder and decals, and some big knarly knobbies like Sodbuster has on his. Maybe those 2.50 x 16 knobby tires, like these
