I would like to see those photos of your 80's glory days.Any day you can raise your leg over the seat is a good day to ride my friend. I enjoyed your retro picture of the yellow yamaha with our hero riding. I went digging for pictures of my old yellow yamaha yz125 but was unable to find any...yet. I did find some old pics from the 1980s and posted them. Have to dig a bit deeper to find the stuff from the 1970s. I think my baby brother has some. Have to remember to ask him. The picture quality of our old cameras is poor but that was all we could afford in those days.
Nice shot!I started to put a few on my profile pics. I was looking for some old yellow yamaha pics to post. Had some air cooled ones and early water pumpers before I went to Honda's and Kawasaki. It's tough finding pictures because we have boxes of albums from those years that have become aged and delicate(like me) and it's hard to remove old yellowed pictures from album pages. The ones I have copied are the loose ones that were rejected from photo album but they are a mixed mess in 50 years of motorized madness and family fun all mixed together in bins in basement. Once in a while I dig through them when I'm bored(almost never)
XR400, yes indeed.Lots of guesswork on photo. After a few years of racing it gets blurred and details get scrambled. I'm sure the bike is XR400 w/430 kit and grenade tuning. Bike was only capable of making enough power to break itself. Track was Pine Grove Pa. Hare scramble. Time frame and race results are blurry. Best I can place time is owning that bike in early 1990s. Not sure what that days race results were but I was top 5 contender in Vet and B classes in those days. These days I would be a contender to follow the water truck around
