Here's mine. 1974 TX650 I bought it about three years ago in terrible condition: top crankcase ripped apart, no compression, badly stretched cam chain, drive chain even worse, badly rusted and oxidised.
It's been a long project, not a lot of Yamaha left now. Along the way I've added VM carbs, cooler, remote filter and a PMA. Machined up spin on filter base, extended manifolds, pancake filters, PMA mount, brake block, fuel distributor, chain adjusters, single points cam, hubs, risers, fabricated tail light, side covers, engine mounts, seat, battery carrier, headlight brackets, two harnesses, chain guard, exhaust pipess, mufflers, muffler hangers, pipe brackets. Rebuilt the motor, rebored .50 over, new pistons, cam chain, seals gaskets, bearings, guides, stainless allen's, et al. Laced the wheels with stainless spokes. Done lots and lots of polishing and painted it in two pack paint.
All but finished now, seat covered, tyres fitted, currently hooking up a magnetic sensor speedo.
