    Its a cool ole bike, but like you said, its no Kawie. The headlight on that thing would be a mere twinkle in the mirror of a Kaw by second gear. I know there is a reason I know that, but I just can't seem to remember right now.
    Besides, the Kawie sounded like the old Maxwell House coffee commercial when it idled.

    You think I am kidding? Crank it up! You hear that sound pull up along side you, you just knew you were about to get smoked.

    Thats a Scuzuki. They sound like they are lucky to run. Kawies sound totally different. Kawies were "musical"

    I have not seen that commercial in years! Wow, ya the kawasaki was faster, but the Suzuki didn't vibrate like hell, plus it seemed to last longer cus it was water cooled, when the bike is running it doesn't really smoke, but when you first start it , it does. You typical two stroke, if I go in the store and come out, when I first stArt the bike I have had people tell me it needs a rebuild because it smokes! Then if I try to explain most people don't understand , it's funny , ohh well, I would like to see a crotch rocket race a kawasaki 750 street light to street light, they wouldn't know what happened, that kawi was fast as hell

    This defines FAST, BALLS, & TALENT all in one package.

    TZ 750 full race Yamaha stuffed into a flat track frame. There is a long but very cool story behind this bike and why they built and why Kenny Roberts was foolish enough to ride it ONE TIME on a 1 mile track at Indy in 1975. Then told Yamaha and everybody else that was listening, I don't get paid enough to do this" He also told the AMA the bike need to be banned, and they did, almost immediately.

    Yeah it was a 4 cylinder road race engine stuffed into a dirt track frame for one race and the season final in '75. He HAD to win the race to tie up the championship and Yamaha had nothing for the HDs on mile tracks. So they came up with that thing. He qualified dead last, and barely made the field. He was dead last on lap 24 of 25 laps and passed the entire field in one lap! It took him all the practice and qaulifying and race laps to figure out how he was going to do it. It was the ballsiest thing every done on a flat track bike, and I think Kenny Roberts is the only man that ever lived that could have done it.

    the bike resides in the AMA Hall of Fame.
