Down at Garage Company last month, one fine, crusty example stood out in the sea of interesting motorcycles that clutter this dream space. It was Yoshi's JD Racer. The bike was found mostly in this condition, with lots of neat modifications by God-only-knows-who from way back whenever. The exact history can't be determined, and as far as I could tell the Garage Co. guys made the muffler and that's about it.
Check the trailing edge of the forks. Someone along the way must have thought the aerodynamics were more important than the added weight. From the cast aluminum split tanks to the custom dash that houses an amp meter, this machine's got an authentic steam punk flavor that will leave any enthusiast drooling for more. The alert observer might notice the transmission is just sitting there, but this thing is a runner so don't be surprised if you see it tooling around the streets of SoCal very soon.
