I restore and collect vintage Yamaha's from the 1960's thru the mid 70's 250cc thru 350cc twin cylinder street bikes like YDS3,DS6,and R5.I ride then too. I also do Moto Guzzi's and BMW's ,I have a 1975 850-T and an 1988 K100rs. So my size range goes from 55 cc to 1000cc. Been riding since 1965,yup,53 years and I am currently restoring a 1965 Yamaha Riverside 55 YJ1 .I had a new one back in 65 ,it was my first bike.I'm a distance rider into cross country trips that go on for months. The little Yamaha Riverside 55 will be used as it was when I first started riding as local transportation for rides in a 20 or 30 mile radius of home.As I recall it would top out at around 50mph so it should be lots of fun .
