    I do.. I'm a big lover of vintage Yamaha bikes.. especially the early enduros and and early '60 road bikes.. I'm currently restoring a 64YDS3 2 stroke twin cylinder road bike..
    The pic I added shows my bike on top and what it's going to look like when done.

    I had a 1973 Yaaaaaa ma Haaaaaaa Enduro. Buddies had Hodaka's. Those Hodakas were a fun little bike. I hear there's about 20 or more in Mustang at some ol boy's house.

    I had a 71 or 72 100(CT?) enduro, green, still have the service manual around here somewhere...

    Dad picked up a 67 or 68 180 at one point, that thing was fast for a 15 year old, I actually got arrested on it, limit for under 16 at the time was 100cc, crossed paths with a TPD officer that had 0 tolerance for me breaking the displacement limit.

    My wife rode a descendant of the air cooled 2 cylinder 2 stroke in an ATV for several years, the Banshee had a 350cc water cooled twin, it would really haul.

    I found an enduro like mine a couple of years ago, almost bought it, but really have no use, or room for it, pic attached. 2w1weja.jpg

    Uncle had a 79 suzuki GS-750. He parked it after my grandpa put it in his head he would become a paraplegic if he rode it.

    Had several Yamaha's ln the early years having a lot of fun with various types of riding. Still have a 74 WR250 Husqvarna that I plunk around out in the woods on every once in a while. I don't ride hard enough to use what it is still capable of, but I get all I can stand to have fun. Now I look at what they are running on TV, wow the technology has changed. Thanks for posting.
