    Amazon distrubution center in Robbinsville......In the cycle parking area No sign of the owner though. There was also a bone stock and weathered CB 900 custom nearby.

    When consulting the magic 8 ball for advice, one must first ask it "will your answers be accurate?"

    Another view. LOVE the Yoshi tag grafted onto the homebuilt muffler....I love the attention to detail on this bike.

    LOL. I have RFY's, that's how I knew. They can be made to work OK with some modification and a rebuild, but out of the box they are crap. (Not completely full of oil, and very inconsistent N2 charge). I just find it amusing. Over all, it isn't a bad effort, but if he mis-branded the exhaust and the shocks, what else is there? It makes me look closer. The front end looks like it came off a TL1000S.....gawd I hated the front end, on that bike! V-stacks (even with a screen) suggest it isn't ridden much. ....but he does have an inner rear fender. That's good....specially without air filters. I'd be curious why such a large rear brake......

    But all that is just because I look at a bike from a perspective of function over form, and it is all a personal opinion. G-3's GS-750 isn't as typical....or pretty, but I like its functionality a lot!

    Agreed. I took the Yoshi tag as a spoof. And after the initial impression of seeing the bike, I also took note of the open stacks and minimal protection from junk flinging off of the back wheel. id have to assume its a fair weather flier.

    No really. I like your bike. I even like the aesthetics. It is more true to the superbike era than trying to make it look like it was supposed to be from the 50's.
