1995 Yamaha YZF600R
Owner: Chris Van Der Putten, Tasmania Owned for: one year
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
