2 winters ago I did a high end build on a 74 TY 250. Planned on riding some vintage trials. I have about 15 minutes on the bike. I have since added a beefy skid plate since this pic was taken.

I remember when I saw my first RZ500... I was down at Daytona for bike week in the mid 80's. All the exotic bikes came down from Canada. I have had a hard on for a RZ500 since that time. I have had many Rz350's. Probably 5 or so. Here is my current one.
