Hello, I´m from the south of Germany (ignore please my bad writing) and bought my SCR about 4 years ago, when in Germany only a few were spred to the dealers. Only 3 were availible around in the south of Germany, and so I got one. Without having seen or driven any SCR before I got one in black. Drove it home about 150 km and at 10 degree outside. Love it and hope to be inspired in this forum for some changes of stock parts.
Drive 2 wheels since I was 16, now I´m 67, and still on the road. Actually I possess a Kawa Z 1000 St (since 1981) and the SCR for easy going. My Honda XL 250 K0 I sold 3 month ago. Any questions ....?

That SCR looks BadAss next to that green Kawi.
Not that there's anything wrong with a Kawi.
KZ1000 was my first brand new bike....everyone remembers their first..:geek:

The Kwaka looks good Odyoa, nothing wrong with the 70’s
Did I see a Curleywurley on the pipe bobbin?

Thanks for compliment it is a fantastic bike and fitted with such a comfortable seat like bikes used to have.
Do you mean the bobbin on swing arm? This picture was taken at the dealership the day I first saw the bike and a week later when I collected her they had mysteriously disappeared ! And some might question me displaying my number plate but that was incorrect too with one letter wrong this only showed up at MOT time resulting in fine for me having no insurance. Won't be using that dealership again incompetent and dishonest.

Simply brilliant collection that's how it all started for me, I also enjoyed 3 Suzuki TS 185M trail bikes (sierra in the state's ) its piston ported engine was primitive compared to yamaha's reed valve motor it was indestructible and featured electronic ignition.

I liked those Suzuki 185s. At that time I had a Kawasaki 175 F7 which was a rotory valve. It was considerably faster on top end than the Yamaha 175 and the Suzuki 185, but it didn't compare with the low end throttle response of the other two. My most recent acquisition is a 1971 Yamaha 175 CT1C. Got it from the original owner. Right now I am refurbishing two Yamaha JT60s.
