Wishing someone harm and tossing out insults. You angry, Mikey?<quoted text>
I bet. That old 750 4 P.O.S. needed maintenance straight off the showroom floor circa 1978. Bet it needs crutches now!
P.S. hope ya skin a knuckle you old grouch!
That ol' POS as you call it runs like a top. I purchased it new off the showroom floor in 1979 (yep, it is a '78, clearance sale of previous year models). I made some minor mods on it over the years, exhaust, ignition, & intake. As I've found NOS parts I'm bringing it back to stock. It has been a reliable bike.
I'm not working on it today, servicing three other bikes & two quads, engine (and transmission on two of 'em) oil changes, brake fluid change, coolant change. Just in ordering a few expendables for a quad right now. Sadly, I have not busted a nuckle today. Don't despair, I'm not finished working.
Just routine stuff - that is why that ol' POS 750 has been around so long. You'll be disappointed to know it took 1st place in a bike show, Japanese category, two years ago. I missed out on the show this year as they called it due to torrential downpours before I got signed in. I did enjoy a nice ride in the downpour though, nothing like riding in a good hard rain.
I've got a few other POS ol' bikes that have taken trophies as well.'76 R75/6 BMW with sidecar (1st in European),'75 RD350 (2nd in Japanese), and a '77 RD400 (3rd in Japanese - I swept the category). The two Yamahas are for sale. Wanna buy one? Not for the mechanically challenged as they're two strokes with points & need regular maintenance to stay in tune.
Hey, at least you got the 750 right this time. Weren't you the one that called it a Kawi several pages back?
