Peter's dad's XS 1979...

Email received from Peter in SA...

I found these pictures in my photo album and I thought you may be interested. This is my Dads first bikes in Australia after immigrating here in 1979. That is me sitting on my dads chopper age 13. It’s a Yamaha XS650, it had a hot motor that used to go like a rocket, the rear shockers where welded solid so no rear movement and the rear tyre was a car tyre. The other bike in the background was a Honda 350 or 450 I believe, real old and heavy, dropped the bike once and I had to lift it up before the old man saw nearly s@#t myself. The old Ford was also our first car here and also the car I learned to drive in.
