Throw back Tuesday
« on: January 03, 2017, 07:09:33 am »
Yeah I know it's supposed to be throw back Thursday but I got bored. This was my baby back in the late 80's and early 90's. Not what you would call a sport tourer but she sure would scream in a straight line. Best time was 9.60 @ 140 mph.

That tripple is MUCHO cool Jim. I came oh-so-close to buying one in the late 90's. It was set up very similarly but with a (claimed) big bore kit, porting (claimed) and pipes (obvious)... lol. I missed out on buying it by about 45 minutes. Oh well.
Looks like it was a blast. Thanks for posting the pic.

Mine was bored to 796cc. The cylinders were ported by Fast by Gast. And she had the sidewinder exhaust chambers, 38mm carbs, air shifter, and 7" rear tire. I built the entire thing myself, that was the most satisfying part.
