OK, it got the better of me, so I cheated and looked on the Yamaha web site. It says that the 2WD set up was designed by Ohlins? No mention of a wheelie king, trick question hey? :devil: :awww:

Missed those replys sorry but you were right on. the first mini trails had ivory grips and handles, no lights. Elvis started out on a 165 and is shown in the big book of harley on his 56 kh model sporty. along with a nother pic on a pan duo glide. Long live rock and roll ....

This thread rules. I just watched the burning bike the other night on "On Any Sunday". That movie is a timeless classic. My father took me to it when I was 6. I think it was the only movie he and I went to together. I lost my dad last year, but I have wonderful memories from that rainy day he took me to see it.

You guys would die if you saw the area where the widowmaker hillclimb was at. It is now a nighborhood. Very nice , upperclass homes. They get really pissed when you call their neighborhood...."Widowmaker Estates".


I love the trivia. Who knows the first lines, and maybe all lines, of the Honda Kick-N-Go commercial? My sick, Rainman like brain does.

Yep, gone. They weren't that nice and I don't think I could have had a nice one between the three. I've had too many projects lately and it's time to concentrate on the ones I want; not the ones that appeared because I had the parts.

Keep the trivia thread going. I don't have a Yamaha (only ever owned one - a brand new '75 DT175!) but it sure was fun to come in here a look around.

I sure have learned a lot about WRs by just lurking and looking at trivia. :thumbsup:

Thank God they built houses there to "Preserve" the land instead of having nasty, smelly dirt bikes tearing the place up.
Did they bulldoze down the hill for fill dirt?

Again, you would not believe me if I told you. I will take a picture of the area tomorrow. If someone could post it, we can all have a good laugh.

The hill was and is too big to bulldoze. It is a mauntain. The houses are at the approach. You can still see tracks from when the cycles were climbing it!

5 What is a DKW and where was is it made????


DKW (Dampf Kraft Wagen) is German for steam powered vehicle. They made cars and motorcycles until the mid-'60s. Taken over by MZ Skorpion, they continued to import two models of bikes into the U.S. with the DKW badge and Sachs motors until 1973.

I know, I have one. :thumbsup:

In the opening scene of American Graffiti, 'Toad' crash parks the Vespa into a photo booth or vending machine or something. :devil: I recently watched the DVD 'The making of: American Graffiti', that crash wasn't in the script, Terry the Toad just couldn't ride for sh*t :thumbsup:

2.Is this the final year of prod. of the almighty beast known as the KX 500 (or big kwacker)?????
3a 67 yr-1 yamaha 350 granprix has what added feature in the fuel tank???? I work for a Kawasaki distributor (among other brands), and in the last two years have only seen one KX500 come through the warehouse. It was an '04 model. I have been told there will be no more for '05. Also, in Australia, the leftover '02 CR500's were modified to comply with road rules (fitted with lighting coils, lights, mirrors, turn signals etc), and sold as road registerable enduro (desert) racers in '03 and early '04. I think the last of them have been sold too. I am guessing that the added feature in the '67 Yamaha 350 GP bike was an internal baffle???
