The impression I get from Yamaha is they are only interested in selling modern bikes.



 






I agree , and I reckon they are WRONG  



The modern stuff is soulless in my opinion.

I think its a shame that Yamaha themselves don"t show more of an interest in the history of Yamaha racing .



Ducati clicked on to this years ago as it being a bit of a money spinner. People like Racing Heritage.



Now that would be nice if a Yamaha rep would come along and endorse this bike . Prob never happen  




If you want a "Yamaha Rep" i could get Lin Jarvis (Runs Yamaha Racing and is the boss of the MotoGP and WSB race teams and signs Rossi"s pay cheques   ) or Davide Brivio, who is the MotoGP team manager ???



Lin loves the heritage of Yamaha and has a collection of old road two strokes

Well it gets my vote    I like it .



I can see the headlines in MCN now . "Aircooled owners snub Rossi in favour of his BOSS to sign over the club bike"        



 I suppose its all down to Dawkins .

I have had an idea.

Well in fact I stole the idea of Del  



The colour scheme was an easy decision until custom painter offered a special paint job.

The options are endless.

I think its only fair to give Custom Painter a free hand to work his magic.

He is the artist.

Just tell him to do what he wants but make it very special and have the club name on the bike.

Keep it secret until the unvailing of the bike at a show.



We will never all agree on a colour scheme and we have not got the imagination of CP, he does this all the time.





And it looks like the signature on the tank by a 2010 MotoGP rider is a NO so far.

Sorry Jonny but they do.



If you go to the Bikers Classic at Spa Francorchamps you"ll see a garage full of Classic 2 stroke works racers run by the Yamaha"s European Classic Race Team.

Its a sight to make a grown man cry.

Well I am building a Fizzy DX for Yamaha and I found them as useless as a lampost in the middle of a dessert.



Anyway the design was eventually left to me and I was hinted at not to theme the bike on race riders past or present to prevent arguments so I have done it fully std with nothing but a name change, I have ran it by the mods and they like.
