"I've alway raced Yamahas. I may be crazy, but I'm not stupid." - Kenny Roberts, AMA Grand National Champion

..."You don't need the biggest bike to win," Kenny says. "Just the best bike. Last year when we raced our 350cc Yamahas against the 750cc machines at Daytona and Talladega, we swept the first three places. Simply because our Yamahas were the most reliable bikes on the track.

For example, our RD350 street bike has the same basic frame, engine, transmission and suspension designs as the road racer Kenny's riding in the picture above.

When a Yamaha rider rolls his motorcycle off the trailer, he knows his chances of winning the race are better than most. That's because Yamaha has a tradition of building motorcycles that win. Now Yamaha has built another winner. It's not a motorcycle. Yet, it's hardly a bicycle. It's the Yamaha MotoBike. Built especially for bicycle motocross. At the heart of the Moto-Bike is a real Yamaha motocross type frame. And unlike many other bicycles, the Yamaha Motobike has shock absorbers: oil-dampened in front; spring-loaded in back. It's got motorcycle handlebars and grips. Heavy-duty spokes and wheels and motocross tires round out the Moto-Bike bicycle. With a Yamaha Motobike, you get the mechanical superiority people have come to expect from Yamaha. You also get a share in the Yamaha tradition of winning.

1974 Print Article on Motorcycle Junkyards

Uninitiated observers call them junkyards; those who run such places call them salvage yards. If Madison Avenue types named them, the world would have emporiums of pre-owned parts.

Suppose that you need a wheel hub for your Suzuki X-6 or an engine for the '49 Famous James you're restoring. The wheel hubs have been back-ordered from your friendly local Suzuki dealer for two months and the last anyone heard from the snarky old dude who used to be the James dealer was that he had been the focal point of a tremendous funeral. The answer to these and similar personal traumas for bike freaks may lie drowsing in the warm summer dirt at a local motorcycle salvage yard... 1974 Motorcycle Junkyards...Fences, Dogs and Parts Once Used 5-Page Article available at www.DadsVintageAds.com CLICK THE PICTURE TO "BUY IT NOW"
