YOSHI POP

Classic Bike (UK) - - YOUR CLASSICS -

Thank you for the ex­cel­lent Pop Yoshimura fea­ture in the Au­gust is­sue. In 1979/80 I pur­chased an AMA/POP homage GS1000S (be­low) from the pro­pri­etor of our lo­cal tun­ing shop at the time, Hadleigh Cus­toms (credit to Dave Bex­ley). The spec was: 1055cc, street race cams, 29mm smooth­bores, 18in Dy­mags and mod­i­fied shocks and forks. Fast it was for the time, but also from me­mory some­what re­luc­tant to turn in – great days in­deed. Where are you now VWF 441S, I won­der? WAYNE HAR­VEY, ES­SEX
