1974 Yamaha TZ-750A Draggin’ the Bodywork

Actually, full disclosure, the bike is a TZ-700A and I took it out to get a few pictures. Couldn’t resist riding it. I had to know what it was like to ride a 700!. The 700 actually handled better than I thought it would. The rear brake is stupid sensitive; just touch the rear brake pedal on the rear wheel locks up. The bike is deceivingly fast with the ability to accelerate with the liter bikes on the straights. The engine pulls smoothly up to 10,500. Not a “light-switch” power-curve that I have read in some publications. If the revs are between 8,000 and 10,000 all is fine! OK, not a four-stroke powerband either!
The Suzuki rider is wondering “what is that ungodly noise next to me?”
The 700 has stingers with no silencers – just like designers in Japan intended it to be – LOUD!

1974 Yamaha TZ-250A at Homestead Race Track Road Course


Not the fastest bike on the track at 41hp and 243 pounds.
Not the best handling bike on the track with a tube frame and drum brakes.
But it is the best looking and sounding bike on the track!
Enjoy the ride!
I did!
The quick stop before entering the track, was the 250’s fuel petcock was closed and I could not find neutral.
So my son had to help me!
