I mean DAMM that’s nice. Oh and if you keep looking you’ll see a really pretty girl in there too! I can’t imagine how cool it would be blasting out of the blocks on this thing for the first time.

Thanks for the spot on MPOTD!! The new site is very nice. Any time is a good time for a free plug. Here’s another pic of a pretty girl with a 1978 Yamaha YZ 250 that I just finished for a good friend, Jeff Hackett. No kudos necissary, just a girl and bike.
No worries Don WELL worth a plug! (Again if you like these old bikes do yourself a favor folks and pay him a visit)

After many months standing in the garage, today I started my Bultaco Sherpa T, and I felt like Steve McQueen in “On Any Sunday”, it was fun again feel the pull of the small two-stroke.
Greetings from Zaragoza, Spain.
That is an excellent build! Thank you for the photo’s. I’d love to own a nice Bultaco someday. They are growing on me a lot!

Swerved into your site and thought you might post my Big Wheel photos.
I have a almost pathological interest in the 500 Yam and recently sold most of my examples of this great cult classic. My street ride was this SR custom, White Bros. 540cc motor, high lift cam, 38mm carb, with Omar’s bodywork. I also restored this 1976 XT, the first ever model in the States, it was mint original and brought a similar price from a collector in Sydney, Australia. The TT is a dirtracker that was once on the street, it is now an ice racer in Michigan.
Thanks, Paul Hutchins
James From Czechoslovak sends in his oldschool CZ 175 1962 dirtbike.

Hi, my name is James and I come from the Czech Republic. I love old bikes and retro style. I prefer motorcycles manufactured in Czechoslovakia (Jawa, CZ). I really like your site. Every day, like watching pictures of bikes all over the world. I decided to also donate their bike. Not original, but built of scrap to ride the terrain around my home.
This is my CZ 175 Type 450 of 1962, adjusted for oldschool dirt bike. He has lots of adjustments for off-road driving. The engine has increased power from 10hp to 15hp, weight is + / – 100kg .
I love the old Jawa/CZ. Some of the best looking engines built and they go like mad! Still miss my old CZ250 dirtbike. Scary scary motorcycle but oh so fun!
Terra Mostro builds bikes like these with 695 Monsters. this guy wanted a bit more power so he had them build this thing. I imagine he succeeded!
Stock specs on and SR4S:
Horsepower: 117.0 @ 9750 rpm
Torque: 68.2 lb.-ft. @ 7500 rpm
Corrected 1/4-mile: 10.71 sec. @ 126.57 mph 0-60 mph 3.12 sec.

Only one in existence and it’s for sale over on Adventure Rider for just shy of $20K. And probably worth it!
