Slacking off Motorhead!

This is the T120R after I was done restoring it. The 6" over forks were eventually replaced with originals. Tried stock exhaust and hated it so stayed with the 2 into 1.

NICE 650 OP! Although I didn't care for the bulky lighting on the last of the 750's, a friend of mine had one that had been "Massaged" a little and it also had the 5 speed trans. That bike was very quick.
I'm 66 now but when I was about 20, I worked at a small independant VW repair shop. The Owner had a flat track 650 punched out to 750 that he raced at ASCOT Raceway in Gardena Ca. It ran alcohol fuel, constant loss ignition and it as a Red Line stretched racing frame. Well, the owner was gone on a trip to Mexico so I wanted to ride this bike. I charged up the battery and terrorized the back streets of my home town of Manhattan Beach, Ca. MY God was that thing fast and as I recall it only had a very small, one wheel brake. That was my thrill for the day.
Getting parts together to send to NJ to the "CUB" guy.
