Gamma ri­val emerges

Practical Sportsbikes (UK) - - Letters - Ron Calvert, email

I’ve been a reader since day one and think the mag’s fan­tas­tic. I’ve been watch­ing your X7 Gamma pro­ject with great in­ter­est and thought you might like to see its ad­ver­sary. This is my back­yard built RD-TZR-LC bitza (hope you like it). It’s a ’76 RD with a TZR en­gine, pipes and electrics, and LC run­ning gear. It’s cur­rently stripped for a ‘light’ restoration as the frame and body­work were looking very tatty af­ter 27 years on the road. A mate of mine is spray­ing the body­work sil­ver (the same as my first RD that I had back in ’82), and I’ve re­moved a few lugs from the frame that’s now at the pow­der coaters. I hope to have it back on the road by April.
