How did you get them!? You've hacked my Photobucket account? Now I know how all those glamor shots of my goat are public domain........

That bottom set up was used in a real life situation.

Photobucket is a public hosting domain that is why you can post a shortcut from it and the photo appears on the forum. You don't actually upload the photo to this site.

I understand the CIA or FBI have the remainder of your photobucket account downloaded :o ;D

What is even more worrying is you appear to be riding a YZ80 chassis with an XR75 engine!!!

Those XR75's in YZ80 frames were a big thing back then. Twice the weight with half the horsepower.
Gangs of fun! It's a legacy that last 'till today......

They even had a special 4st race so they could win.

Some XR75 had thousands spent on them in the late '70s so they could be slower than an RM or YZ80 but did make a different noise.

Ahh the memories an XR75 bored out, HIComp piston, oil cooler, meg dollar ignition, big valves, ported and polished, big cam, big carbie on methanol, unbaffled pipe, in YZ80 chassis out gunned by a standard off the show room floor RM80/YZ80.

I had a Honda SL100/125 back in '72 or so and thought it was the ducks guts until I saw and rode a CR125. I still remember the look on the faces of kids with XR75s when this kid showed up at our club with a YZ80B (silver tank from memory) and all they saw was the bit of blue smoke after the first corner.
