Dr BIg that MT is a great find.

I will always automatically associate these MT's to Yokohama "SuperDigger" tyres, just a 70's connotation for me personally.

Sjoe, dit bring baie memories terug. Ek het so een in Windhoek gehad, was my eerste GROOT bike. RAM air system opgehad.  Ek het daai jare n Honda XL 250 gehad en toe die 550 gekoop. Man daai dinge het flippen geloop dat hy bars.

I rebuilt a 74 gt550 in early 90s. Motor had the chrome barrels and was shot so I bought a complete motor unseen from a chap in JHB even with new pistons for R500! A bargain of note.

All I have left are some ignition keys.

Great thread!  Keep them coming.  Today I really regret selling those bike's I owned in the '80's.  Great to see the old-school stuff on this thread - unfortunately I'm clueless when it comes to operating a spanner and the mere idea of restoring an old bike makes me tremble.  Would love to have the skills you guys have - well done on keeping the old stuff alive  :)
