That is awesome.... I love those old Yamaha bikes, I grew up seeing a lot of those as a kid, Had an uncle that owned a YAMAHA dealership from mid 60's to mid 80's, I just love the look of those old bikes and you did a great job of making that Honda clone engine look like it came factory of that old Yamaha bike, I'd build one of those in a heart beat if I ever came across one of those Yamaha frames.
Love that little bike Citi-sport excellent job.....
I dont always ride WOT, but when I do..I do my best to keep the rubber side down..Ride safely my friends!
