Pat's Chopper

I've started looking for a bike to put together for next years Stampede. I found this little Yamaha XJ-750 on S.F. Craig's List. I rode over to South San Francisco to take a look. I met Sal who greeted me llike an old friend. Sal said that the bike belongs to his wife, Patricia, but she is ready for a bike with shock absorbers.
Sal's garage has a lot of character and is one of those places where people, like me, like to hang around. So over a cup of coffee, we talked motorcycles.  Sal has a soft spot for 500cc singles, SR an XT Yamahas. I spied an XT with a polished aluminium tank in a corner of the garage.

Pat's chopper is a little small for my idea of a Stampede bike. But if anyone is interested, drop me an email and I'll hook you up with Sal. He makes good coffee.

 Oh yea, Sal, those cigs are gonna kill ya!
