I remember getting my first bike an RD200 and going back a month later for my RD350. In the showroom of the dealership was a TZ700 that they had converted to 750 but it still was the twin shock. Made me a believer in Yamaha 2 stroke technology. I wish I had a photo of the TZ but never made one.

I bought my first streetbike, RD350, from Don Vesco Yamaha in 1972 and used to hang around just to see the racers that would show up.
