So far: YZF600R with Thun­der­cat mo­tor trans­formed into track bike What’s next? a YZF750 retro racer with RZ500 body­work and fac­tory colours

Itry and build a project ev­ery year. This is my 2017 bike. It started out as a 1995 YZF600R (FZR600R to us) with a Thun­der­cat en­gine and air­box. I mod­i­fied the tank for a ram-air sys­tem, much the same as the OW01. Other bits in­clude an ’85 FZ750 fair­ing, an ’89 OW01 dash, ZZ-R250 fair­ing bracket, YZF750SP seat unit with OW tail light. The ’bars are fit­ted un­der the top yoke. It’s a great lit­tle track bike.

Very de­cent blend of Yams of all ages
