    Harvest Classic 2010 Auction Bike

    Harvest Classic Vintage and European 2010 Auction Bike.

    Some where in here, there is a great story about people who love and build incredible bikes to benefit the Candlelighters Childhood Cancer Foundation. We attended the "Harvest Classic Vintage and European Motorcylce Rally" in Luckenbach, Texas. (Don't miss this event!)

    My wife Susan and I bought this 1977 GS750 at the charity auction. The bike was not finished when we bought it, so we were able to have some input. The bike was donated by a guy named Randy Voet, aka "Jap bike Randy" and his friends Paul, Lance, Leeland, Rob and others I'm sure I am not aware of. These guys all work at Killeen Powersports, a Suzuki, Honda, Triumph store in Killeen, Texas

    Randy's vision and taste as it relates to cafe bikes mirrors mine in so many ways. It must be spare, functional, have appropriate nods to the bikes origin and be true to the real cafe racer mantra, "it has to be built not bought".

    I really like the "Yosh" style braced swing arm and under slung rear caliper, and of course the cut down and sectioned GS550 tank tuned tail section. Not to mention everything else.

    Happy New Year and enjoy the pictures!

    Thanks, the plate mounts on the swing arm. We are installing a tach and oil pressure gauge as well. It does have a high beam indicator!
