1973 Yamaha TX-750 – Back on the road…. almost

Well, after a few months of workin on the TX on and off, I finally have had it back on the road, but not without issue, sort of…

My work list was as follows:
– New Brakes
– New points and ignition repair
– Body work and paint
– Handlebar change
– Wiring repairs
– buffing and polishing
– General reapirs

I had it out for a couple of rides and put about 75 miles on it before it decided to stop running on one cyclinder. Of course this happened the night before I was going to ride it up to the Ponoka Vintage Motorcycle Rally. I guess better then than on the ride up to Ponoka…

Anyway here are a few photos of the work:

    I just acquired a 73 TX750 and was wondering about the seat you have, did you make it yourself or buy it somewhere?

    I had the original seat recovered at an apholstery shop here in Calgary.

  8. i like body paints because it could be used to portray art using your own body-“

  9. body paints are quite nice when you are out on a pool party or just about any party –`
