    Well, I like what I'm seeing so far.

    Frankenbike, or a survivor? Tank looks like a '71 or '72.

    The TX750 wheels are very nice. I've been running a set for years. Mine actually have D.I.D. rims. I think Yamaha used them for the 1st couple years of the flanged alloy rim before switching to the Takasago brand. Late model V-Star 650 rear brake shoes will fit the TX750 rear wheel and are plentiful on eBay. Basically, you buy the whole brake plate but just use the shoes .....
