Cool.

I almost bought one of those for the bumper of my travel trailer last year. I ended up buying a used 2018 Kawasaki KLX250 with EFI .... which is now in the rear view mirror and replaced with the retro GL1000 I just bought.

Suzuki has one out now called the VanVan 200. A little more retro looking with EFI.

The popularity of those Yams is cult like.

You will have fun with it.

Looks so strange. It has a seat? What is with that? There goes all that conditioning. Turning it into a Rokon?
