I was thinking that Yamaha cylinder looked a little big. My wife had the '73 360. She rode that on our first date, out dirt-biking in the desert.

Bike

To me it looks like a YCS-1, late 60's I think they had an alpha character after the -1 to disignate the year. I was riding Twinjet 100's then, the 180 was considered a "big" bike at the time
Acutally dualsported the Twinjet until I bought a NEW DT-1 in 68-69.

Oh yeah. He left the garage open for me one day so I could stop and grab some parts. I stood looking around and drooling all over myself before I got my engine loaded. Then I called my wife over to look so that she could feel better about the twenty-one vehicles stashed around our place. Ian has the sickness WAY worse than I do!
