Elwood: It's 106 miles to Chicago, we got a full tank of gas, half a pack of cigarettes, it's dark... and we're wearing sunglasses.
Jake: Hit it.

A little road trip today..Had to get this from Bear Mountain to Springfield Mass...





Elwood: We're on a mission from God.

Had to work for a bit this morning then headed off to Rockwell Cycles (Rockwell is a Ducati/Triumph/Husky dealer that I have been in once or twice before and last time nobody even looked at me and again today not one person even rolled ther eyes or seemed to realize that someone was in the store?) in Fort Montgomery NY to meet an Ebayer with a 89 CR125 motor. We met in the parking lot and I handed him cash and he handed me the motor like any good drug deal in a parking lot,I got what I wanted and so did he...

Headed outa there as quick as possible so the cops couldn't catch me and headed over the Bear Mountain bridge crossing the MUDDY Hudson to the safe side of the river..100 miles round trip and the long part of the journey in front of me...

I couldn't get the shop owner on the phone and didn't want to drive 2 hrs to a closed shop so I accessed the huge portion of my brain that holds all the address's of every vintage rider in the North East and who popped up out of the data bank...none other than "holeshot king" 6 pak Novak who resides less than 15 min from the shop which holds the possible +30 vintage 80's championship bike. A phone call and a text and the plan was set, I was headed to Springfield Mass. getting the powerplant one step closer to the hopefully championship bike.

93 miles later I pulled into the "foundry" and found "6 pak " knee deep in Yamaha vintage parts uttering something about a 74 YZ 125 that could be built out of the pile of parts behind him...I shook him a few times and the glassiness that was in his eyes fell to the floor along with his dream of the YZ 125 that was to propell his girthy frame through the sands of Southwick. When the whites of his eyes were visible again I explained to him that he must get this motor to REP Monday morning because there was a championship on the line, not just any one the ACR+30 vintage 80's one!

6 pak understood! One thing old vintage riders understand is that any championship could be the last one and as he heard my words the 3 day old beard he had seemed to disapeer, the belly that hung over the Budweiser belt buckle seemed to rise into his chest, he had a mission! Just because he was out of the points didn't mean that he couldn't help another vet rider. The championship was his to share! Just get that motor to REP Monday morning and we all were winners!

As I drove the 90+ miles home contemplating my 300 mile drive for the day and that at this point my world was in the "Holeshot Kings" hands I reflected on what it all ment... This was for the $12.00 trophy not the normal $7.00 one on raceday...this was big and all worth it.

It'd be really cool if you did up the YZ in old school yellow.
I just can't get used to blue.

Might be one of my winter projects????
I always have not liked the blue and actually never have liked Yamaha's, This bike has changed my mind. Most fun bike I have ever ridden, my only complaint is the back brake wich gets so hot it is blue and fades right away.
Bike steers where ever I want and the suspension is so far above my KTM's that it is no contest, motor is no slouch either.
