A Little late on the Intro

Like to ride, started on a Honda 50 in 1965. Did a little dirt, dual, road / cruiser touring over the years on mostly Honda and Kawasaki bikes. Got my 2007 KLR650 fixed my way. After heart bypass and retirement I do something like touring but with a little dirt. Not the bike nut I once was, but still enjoy a good ride and seeing a little of the country. Going down to Big Bend TX. Jan. 18 for a couple weeks road trip then back to the grandkids!

Hope to see you out there somewhere on the road

It was cream and red with a step through frame. More scooter like than motorcycle like. Had a three speed transmission and centripical type clutch.

Hope this helps

Cracker box welder, 6018 rods and a 4 inch long piece of 2 inch pipe split down the middle. The split pipe slips over forks just about right. I tack welded the pipe to the fender. Then pulled it all off and finished the welding. Used the stock bolt holes as is on the fork got a little longer bolt and screwed it into the Yamaha fender. Fit pretty good even used the original amber reflectors.
