Old school rides: Let's see 'em!

This forum came about not just for the airheads, though quite a few folks here own at least one.

This is also about vintage iron. The stuff we grew up on. Lusting about, dreaming about on a sunny afternoon after seeing a bike go by. Some of us have been fortunate enough to own the bikes of our dreams, of our youth. Here's a spot just for those machines.

So show us your good stuff. Show us the bikes we all grew up with.

Mine started life as a Yamaha RD350, 1982. Not available in the US, it was the LC model, which was liquid cooled but without the power valve on the exhaust of the later RZ models. In the rest of the world, the RZ's were still called the RD's.



Mine is an old race bike, restored to the street, with some mods along the way. It's got the '85 RZ motor and tranny, '83 RZ upper and lower fairing, '84 RZ front end and footpegs, plus various other little tweaks and goodies like carbs of the '79 Daytona 400 cause they're 2mm larger.



So whatcha got hiding in your garage? TD, we know you got some good stuff under them tarps in your garage. Let's see 'em!

DBD Goldstar. This is actually a replica. Some guy in Europe has started casting Goldstar engines from the original plans.

My brother (DoctorDR) took his mighty GPZ985 Warrior to the streets, for the first time since parking it 18 years ago!
We took it around the neighborhood for a shake down run, and man, the motor totally rocks! The blue-printed engine, balanced crankshaft and pistons really shine! This is a very addictive bike!
We discovered the clutch slave cylinder is leaking, so no big ride until we fix that, but everything else is solid!

I had an RD when I lived in Canada too. Sold it when I moved to the States because my friends told me it wasn't worth taking....

nice friends

Well, the pipes are wrong. I will get the proper ones after I get luggage for my X-Challange. Other than rebuilding the carbs, I am not going to mess with it too much. I like the way it looks.

My 1972 R75/5 with 3,072 actual miles!

Posted a couple of photos in the airheads picture thread and thought I would share this old classic with you guys up here. Until last month she was a one owner bike with 3,072 miles. Lived in an airplane hanger. This picture was taken today just prior to my first ride after a full service and clean up. She's an unrestored original survivor.
