Yamaha 225cc Scorpio

The Yamaha Scorpio is a neat, if underpowered commuter that is cheap to buy and run. Not setting the world on fire, but a few have waved the custom stick and come up with some
interesting ideas. Here's the original (there are options available) :

To dream......the impossible dream........

From this...........(another ebay special)............
To this ! (a recoloured image of Jonathan Wood's neat resto, see earlier post).
Sure thing - shouldn't take too many years, or cost too much, heh.

Can you guess what this is?

This is a barn find (ebay) I picked up a month back for $30.00. After many people on the Kawasaki Riders Forum helping, it has finally been identified !

I could have sworn it was a Kawasaki J1M or G1M (wishful thinking)It is a Daytona (Taiwan)125 Road bike imported into Australia and sold by car racer Bob Jane in 1972. Engine is Kawa c2 120 copy. (thanks ZED900, MURN & Facthunt for the detective work).
Think I'll do some 'practice' restoration on it, Let the kids have a ride, then stick it back on eBay.

The Steve McQueen replica issue. I won't tell you where to get it, as it is stupidly priced. But I love it. ( you can find out more on the wonderful http://www.pipeburn.com/ website)
