Hello all. I’ve been ghosting this forum ever since I saw my first SCR 950. It brought me right back to memories of riding my 1975 Yamaha DT100 as a teenager. Well here I am at age 52… got the kids settled with college, took care of the honey-do list… and I figured it was time to pull the trigger. I picked up this SCR with less than a 1,000 miles on it. It now has some of the following add-ons: wind/glare screen, wrapped mufflers, rear fender eliminator, license plate side-mount, Vance & Hines air intake, Corbin seat, Yamaha Saddlebag, and Baron slash cut exhaust. I hope you all enjoy this as much as I do. Thank you to those who contributed to this forum with some awesome insight and ideas. I’m ready to ride!

-Tim B.

Hi Tim congratulations on getting back in the game. What stunning SCR you have found. I'm sure a DNA test would find some DT 100 in there somewhere but like a lot of us the bike as put on a little weight over the years. It definitely lacks the ground clearance of the DT.
Enjoy many happy safe miles.
I too started on a DT 100 in77/78 don't suppose you ever forget your first love.

Great stuff! It looks like you had a '76 DT 100. I love that Green Machine... nice we both have a beefed-up version to enjoy 45 years later.

Did someone say DT100?
Here's mine. It was missing most of the street legal hardware, so I went with an off-road version.
