1984 Yamagamma and Harris Magnum
Owner: Mike Stewart, Abingdon, Oxon Owned for: five years So far: Yamagamma built from bits What’s next? Harris due a refresh
The Gammaha was bought in 2013 as many boxes of bits and pieces, frames and engines. I bought a lathe to fabricate all the bushes and spacers. It goes like stink. And I’ve been after a Harris Magnum since the late ’70s. This one is a GSX1100E converted in ’84 then stored for years. I bought it off a chap in Ireland who’d made it into a cafe racer, so the first thing I did was refit the fairing and seat unit. It’s really ugly and very dated, but I love it, and it was a real bargain.
Yamagamma looks like a paddock bike next to mighty Magnum
