I hope I've seen the last snow storm of the year this past week-end, as I'm getting antsy to get the bikes out from their winter naps.
Here some are almost ready for show season except for getting the trailer packed. Bikes are already cleaned up, show placards made and I'm ready to hit the road for shows and swap meets, with my mid-60's "Discover The Swinging World Of Yamaha" ad campaign theme. Last year we did Honda's, next year probably a Suzuki theme.
Should be a fun time meeting up with good friends again.

I am thinking Suzuki theme this year at Gilmore show as I have a TS125, RV125, RV90, Suzuki FA50 moped and might as well bring my GS1000. Oh, I forgot about my TS185 and my mini bike with the RV125 engine in it. Should be fun.

Steve I was there last year, I'm looking at going back to Barber again this year. I always look for you there but never seem to catch you. 🙁

Beautiful group of bikes Lyle. I'm sure that they'll be the hit of the show. Steve, I'd love to see some pictures of your Suzuki group. The two of you guys could put on your own show. Very Happy

.....Paul

Saturday was a beautiful day to display some of my Yamaha's at Motoring Fest in McPherson KS. A sunny day in the mid-80's, with many spectators. Show and program put on by the Automobile and Motorcycle Restoration Students at the local college. This show featured the first Camaro ever built, with VIN #1

From Gold Wing (background) to the third place winner Mini Trail


as well as this model I have never heard of or seen. Domestic model only for Japanese military. A 50cc with 3 speed dual range transmission.


Second place winner, an old Indian


Step through Honda C100


Vespa with sidecar


...and the worlds only known surviving CB95.


Here's a couple of pics of my Yamaha's from the mid 60's display.

Great pictures, thanks. What's the story on the CB95, was it a 150cc version of the CB92? And never imported into the US? Those "Gran Turismo" grips it has are tragic.

Yes, basically a CB92 with 150cc's from what I've seen now.
Here's a link to the thread I posted when learning about this rare bike back in early February.

Hello Steve, i see your from Marshall Mi. I live in Jackson. Just completed my 7 mouth 73 Suzuki TS400 restoration. It's a pretty nice one. Was thinking of bringing it up to the Gilmore show this year. I usually am a Yamaha guy but came across this TS400 about 8 mouths ago. my picture files are to big to post here. I might see you at the show if weather is nice.
Or i can e-mail you a pic and see what you think.
regards
Rob

You surely had better go to Gilmore. It is fantastic. Sounds like you love bikes as much as we do so you will really enjoy the show. PM me and we can talk. We need to talk. I have a 1975 DT250 enduro restored that I am planning on selling soon. I have some Yamaha enduro parts I would sell the whole lot cheap. TS bikes and more.

I will be there with or without the TS400. I replyed to your PM but not sure they are getting thru to you? they show in my outbox but not the sent box? Also how are you guys able to post nice large pictures on these threads? it Tells me mine are to large even when i resize them down below the recommended size listed. What picture resizing site are you using? I see some of you have pictures with lines and info on it, some are just nice large pictures. I have tried everything in the "add a attachment box" thanks for any help.
