    Default 1974 Yamaha TX750

    Hello everyone, I've been a member on here for a few years but I haven't stayed active, not too great at keeping up on forums. I will do my best with this one. I was recently selected to be part of the Greasy Dozen and it reminded me to be more active here....

    So, the project is a 1974 TX750 that I received for free from a friend. It was partially disassembled when I got it and was pretty roached in a few areas. My original plan was a flat track bike but then gained some inspiration from Kenny Robert's YZR500 race bike. So I started by designing my own monoshock suspension in a similar arrangement to the Yamaha racebike of the day(tz750, tz350, yzr etc..), using a shock from an r6. It's fully adjustable for ride height, shock angle, preload and such... here are a few photos from the beginning

    I decided when I started the project that I was going to try my hand at metal shaping all the bodywork from aluminum..here was the first try at the tank

    I hated it, so I started over again.
