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.

SRX-6 Another fantastic single… that more or less bombed in the US.


Today they are sort of cult bikes with a loyal following but they didn’t originally splash big enough to stick around in the US. Singles are my new thing though and I would love to find one in decent shape. It’s ironic that it has a GB500 behind it. Another bike with a similar fate.

A really stunning Yamaha SR500 Cafe from a reader in Holland

I really like the photo’s Ive seen , Maybe i can make a contribution with some pictures of mine 1980 SR500 Yamaha.
It kept me off the street for the last 10 months but now its time to take him out.
Hopefully you like them.

Really Really nice bike. Congratulations!
