A seriously badass TT500 Yamaha Roadracer!

Waiting for me in my e-mail after my break. WOW!

Here are some pics of my latest build. It is a TT500 Yamaha with some modifications; mainly FZR 600 forks, wheels, and swing arm. It has a FJ600 tank. Still having teething problems, but that is the nature of the beast. This thing is a BEAST.

  2. Really sweet build. I bought a new 1980 sr500 and modded it, so I know how you feel . Beautiful and unusal tank choice.

  3. Thank you for your comments. I really appreciate them. This bike is purely garage built. I found the basic bike in a backyard sitting in the weather about 20 years ago. I had always liked the Hallman TT500 mx bike and wanted to build a replica, which didn’t happen. I had numerous parts sitting around the garage and this bike sort of built itself.

    1. First and foremost, beautiful bike. I cant imagine how much fun this thing is to ride. I have a few questions for you Charlie, regarding my own SR500 build. Would you be opposed the me sending you an email to pick your brain a bit? Shoot me your email address if so, mine is mattnes17@gmail.com. Thanks and have a wonderful day!
