"have been wanting to git into the new and budding class the “VDTRA” started down in texas.. “650 stocker” . basically a entry level class which does not allow for any modifications to either the frame, motor or carburetion. found a machine in omaha, and… it just so happened that the fellow selling it had been gearing the ’74 650 yamaha up just for the nebraska indoor championship race… he decided he was to purty to risk any permanent facial disfigurations (not me!) so he was selling the machine. TemPa n me went to nebraska saturday morning , bought it and raced it saturday night…
…two or three spills later I have a real good idea why the kid was selling motorcycle parts, and not in the service dept… we now know what needs to be done to this machine (low $$) to make it somewhat competitive in the oklahoma indoor series they run down here… at the “historic ok rodeo arena” in harrah ,
..right outside o okc.
Also to fullfil another dream… the VDTRA runs a race at the famous deqouin fairgrounds mile horse track… just the way American flat started.. wish me luck.
“for immediate release on the “goawaygarage blog” (maybe?)” please
There you go, Kirk. Good Luck. Makes me want to try.
