Well I drove 10 hours round trip to acquire my project for next "Off Season". I had to pay more for it than I did for a brand new one in 72. These little JT's either go for way more than I am willing to spend, or if they are reasonably price they get snapped up by scavengers who part them out. Yes that first photo is a Kodak moment of me back in 72. Nice form eh! Anyone remember half helmets with the ear flaps?

Beauty, that one does look extra clean. Was it was yours and you sold it? What do you have to give for one that nice, three or four grand? Also, to upload a photo do you just drag it into the "upload file box"? Im also trying to figure out how to post a youtube video (not a youtube link)..

If you are referring to the blue F7, I just copied that off google images. It is the same as the F7 I had. But if you are referring to the little red JT, then you best get your eyes checked, because it's not that clean, and it doesn't run. But it is quite complete, and it came with a parts bike that is about 80% complete including the headlight bucket and brackets. Plus a third frame, engine, and rear wheel. So I came home with a truck load of JT stuff for $500. As far as I'm concerned, I came home with a truck load of gold!

Lol. Yes, I was referring to the blue F7. I need to be more careful and consise when rattling off posts first thing in the morning! Communication has never been my strong suit and I know that more than once I've left people scratching their heads lol - part of the reason I'm not a fan of texting as well lol.

Yes, "gold" is one way to put it...but it can drive you crazy. For me it's a matter of space. Space, and also being able to keep track of everything. Over the years we have earnestly tried to downsize, but we still have WAY too much STUFF. What ever happened to "nothing but the wind at my back and the open road" lol.

You are a wise man. Too much stuff has indeed driven me crazy. I have gone thru this collecting phase with guitars, guns, knives, and even dogs....... When I find something I like, and it comes in various sizes or colors, well next thing I know I have several. I'm sure it's something I will grow out of as I get older........

I have the same disease. Guitars? I currently have four acoustics, one electric, and a lap steel. I also like amps, harmonicas, vintage mics, vintage audio equipment and vinyl records...

beautiful dogs and great photo!
