    1971 Yamaha R5B just finished it. 2 stroke

    It's a pretty neat little bike. I have been fighting the carbs. I finally discovered that sudcos sent me carbs with the wrong emulsion tubes. I got it all together last night I can't wait to ride it. It looks pretty cool. I am selling it for $3500.

    Those bikes are a hard sell around here. No one knows what they are doing. It's super fun everyone stares at it. I might just keep the damn thing. Thanks for the praise guys.

    Thanks Fellas. I added some more goodies to it just recently. 520 alum rear sprocket kit new chain, bar end mirrors, also new drive dampeners for the rear hub because you could take and rock the hub left to right a solid inch it was bad. i added a new clutch and changed the emulsion tubes from the old drip style that sudco forgot when they sent me them. I am not trying to sink money in it. I still have to finish the GPz and the turbo Kz. I cant wait to get those two done and rack on some miles. It would be nice to go to the drag strip for once.
