Yamathumper hot rod . . . it brought back memories of #7, the Suzuki quad leading shoe equipped TT500C supermotard style monster that Classic Bike Tune campaigned at Lakeside in the early nineties, pretty sure that our chosen pilot, John Stamnas, held the lap record for a 500 single until the track's initial closure . . . this dirt tracky type example was just perfect, Aussies really fell for the big Yammy early on and this is a clear indication of why and what many were doing to them by the end of the eighties, toughest chook chasers ever.

Thumper . . . the OG all-time mono king, '76 TT500C, apart from the first release of the CR250M, no other motorcycle of the seventies had such an enormous effect on me as the Yamahauler single, imagine a Beezer 500 without the problems, these were that.

A lot of people asking and messaging me about this bike so I’ll tell you a little more about it. This jigger has been in & around my family since it was new. Some of my fondest memories are of my Dad on it following me on my first bike around the river bends where I grew up. When I was 11 I asked him if I could have a ride on it, like most responsible fathers he said “if you can start it” ...so I kicked it over like he’d shown me and it fired!
The torque yanking my arms from their sockets was addictive! So began my love for thumpers. The dent/scar you can see on the tank is mine: on Anzac Day 1989 I rode the bugger straight off the edge of a huge sand pit and didn’t make the other side - probably a 60ft distance from my foggy memory... a night in hospital under observation for concussion and an arm full of prickles was my reward. It didn’t stop me loving the 500 though. Cut forward about 25yrs and through a series of conversations I managed to take possession of the bike in 2015 and began to restore it. There’s immense sentimental value in this bike - I spent most of my teens flogging it around the bush where I grew up, and since my dad passed away last year it’s even more special to me. It’s also the namesake/origin of the name Seven Six Collective. I hope to pass it on to my grandkids one day. #yamaha #tt500 #original #oldschool #thumper #fourstroke #xt500 #tt500c #1976 #se7ensixcollective #s7nsxco #76co #76coracing

The look of a satisfied thumper. You can almost see the grin on the front of this bike. Has always been a workhorse and never fails to please. #leethett500c #yamaha #1976 #tt500 #tt500c #original #oldschool #thumper #twinshock #aircooled #drumbrakes #se7ensixcollective #s7nsxco #76co #76coracing

My 1976 TT500C Australian Delivered. Fitted with a US spec Spark Arrestor in this series of pics. I think I'm going to drag this old boy out of the garage for Classic Dirt 13 in ten days.... #yamaha #tt500 #oldschool #thumper #tt500c #leethett500c #original #vintagemotocross #twinshock #vmx #vintage #classic #classicyamaha #scrambler #garagebuilt #restoration #dadsoldbike #se7ensixcollective #s7nsxco #76co #76coracing

Here we have the nicely restored original old thumper of @se7ensixco 's - he's offering it to ride for someone keen to join the Harrisville TT but is without an eligible bike. Get in contact with Paul directly if you think this would suit you. #bmccvmx #vintagemotocross #motorcycleclub #classic #dirtbike #racing #harrisville #harrisvillett #tritrakharrisville #yamaha #tt500 #tt500c #thumper #fourstroke #vmx

Although they had some wild storms here whilst we were away my trailer was bone dry inside. Sikaflex saves the day! #yamaha #tt500c #xt500c #oldschool #vintage #thumper #classic #4stroke #motorcycle #vmx #se7ensixcollective #s7nsxco #76co #76coracing #leethett500c #megthext500c

The ole 500 sure looks pretty next to the new truck! #gmc #tt500c #blackonwhite #vintagemx #nasty

I like to name all my bikes...
Meg the XT500C: she's the quiet, sensible matriarchal figure.
Lee the TT500C: he is the dutiful, dependable & ever reliable father figure.
What about the HL?
She's the delinquent wild child - she's got long legs, a svelte waist & a tight rear end. She wears her clothes too tight & her skirt too short - but she's a very pretty thing.... Maybe I should call her Giselle... Giselle the HL...?
