Those of you who attended Buelltoberfest might remember me mentioning that the day before we all got there, one of my drivers made a very special delivery down to Daytona... a motorcycle from overseas being shipped to it's owner.
Well I just got pictures back from my driver, who said it's owner, Paul Allender, was extremely pleased we were able to get it to him in time...
Here's the truck:
And here's the bike during the process of being uncrated... the owner was nice enough to let my driver get on the bike for a few snaps:
I don't really know jack about the bike or it's owner, but it looks pretty damn cool to me!
Maybe you lot know something about this bike...

I found this here: http://advrider.com/index.php?threads/yamaha-race- bikes-at-stafford.521048/
Looks very similar just a different color.

What the hell is that thing?
4 pipes, 2smoke, Kaw green but with Yammie checker patterned stripe... rear sprocket looks to make tall gearing...

Looks like a Yamaha TZ750 with the "duck tail" in an odd color.
That reminds me to go to a vintage race already.

Sweet. Makes me grin and think about my new favorite toy:
Think I'll go for zing.

RubberD, PLEASE let me know if you ever want to part with that beauty! Back in the early '90's, I had a red/white one, bored .40 over, with Spec II pipes, Boyesen reeds, a steering damper, and a tooth shorter front sprocket... that thing was God's own slingshot!
I do love me some 2smokes!
