Winter blowout at Chopsaw Garage …
Hey guys, I’ve been busy and cold, how about you?
I’ve got a new bike in the garage that I (unfortunately) have to let go. It’s really sweet and I hate that I have to get rid of it. However, I’d rather see someone I know end up with it rather than some craigslist rando.
So here it is, a 1967 Yamaha YR1. 350 two stroke. The daddy to the r5 and the grand daddy to the rd350.
electric blue, fresh tires. style for miles.
I swear the Yamaha two strokes find me and not the other way around. apparently that’s just my bag.
We still have Meredith’s xs400 for sale. This bike made it to northern Ontario and back and didn’t even blink. One of my favorite bikes, great stock runner.
Also still for sale is the ever powerful titty bird, Ms. major boobage. Needs to go so I can start the next project! im asking a veeeeeery fair price.
If you’re interested in any of these bikes you can contact me via email, text, call, carrier pigeon, aolIM, snail mail, smoke signals, cup phone, and telegraph. Sorry, but my pager is down.
carrier pigeon: call “wilson wilson buttercup” 3 times at the 7th hour on the northern wind. Don’t judge me.

Mick’s cross-country trip
Most of you guys know Mick. He’s doing a trip with his buddy across the country. He started a tumblr to document it. Check it out HERE.
That YR1 rules so hard! What is that knob below the handlebars – steering damper?
Yea, that YR1 is real cool.
jim, yup. its like a pressure damper though, it tightens a plate on the triple. Yamaha did some weird shit. it should be completely loose while riding. The idea of it was to steady the front forks for tire changing so its not flopping all over the place.
