The engine, a 1971 TD2-B was laying around Vesco's shop for a couple of years after it had powered Don to a 189.529 MPH 250cc
Streamliner record in 1972. The bike was latter sold to a gentleman who trail rode it in Baja for many years. The owner was
going to replace the Yamaha with a Rotax and somehow a call to Don lead to a saving of a milestone racer from the early 70's.
Don passed the bike on to former road racer Mark Seifried to restore and add to his collection of Yamaha racers.
