Bassani chambers actually this was a project someone had started a few years back and I believe they were going to cafe it out but the stock parts were so nice we thought it would be cool project to be mostly stock look other than motor built with wossner pistons, ported and modern charging system along with the pipes..All original paint, turn signals, cables not touched at all a real nice example of a 1972 soul less bike they use to be referred too!! It had $1200 in just receipts for the crank, cylinder/head work pistons etc and the entire thing was a basket case. So far its been complete but the rider pegs were cut off to install rear sets and not included but Justin has a welder and not afraid to use it installed the pegs and fitted the bassani pipes which ended up quite a chore ( his garage where the work is being done) The chambers and electronic ignition came from another deal just after this one with a lot of 2 stroke parts!

Big score on this https://hvccycle.net/yamaha-rd-r5-cd...-71-05-799-00/

Trying to get everything figured out with the charging mod right now but its coming along quite nice wheelies and power-bands forever

We do have 2 more
