Fired up the #tt500c after refitting the exhaust. Bit of paint burning off. 🔥#yamaha #thumper #tt500 #vintagemotorcycle #vintagemotocross #vmx #xt500

Like me, the TT turns 40 in a few weeks... Getting old or just getting warmed up? I know which one I feel 😎 #yamaha #tt500c #thumper #vmx #vintagemotocross #xt500 #tt500 #classicscramble #classicmotorcycle #oldschool

Bike 1. Rider 0. Put my foot down to save a tuck - which I did - but in the process slammed it under the swingarm.... Yep, ran over my own foot. #yamaha #tt500c #thumper #vintagemotocross #vmx #classicmotorcycle #classicscramble #oldschool #noskills #ambitionoutweighedtalent

MOST RECENT

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

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

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

I did have one race on the TT on Sunday morning - but after being on the HL all weekend it felt really WEIRD - this bike will be re-restored next month and "retired" while I concentrate on the HL. #yamaha #1976 #tt500c #oldschool #thumper #fourstroke #4stroke #vintage #motorcycle #vintagemotocross #vmx #privateer #ozvmx #bmcc #harrisville #se7ensixcollective #76co

On track at Conondale - the "Drunks Hill" jump was a thrill on the TT500 - he flies like a boat anchor but if you hit the upramp hard enough he gets in the air ok - then all you gotta worry about is getting back down.....

Classic Dirt 12 done & dusted. The Conondale track was prime - no dust at all over the whole weekend.

Race 2, Classic 263+ Harrisville ..ended up with a 5th after running fourth most of the race. A couple of missed gears upset momentum. @FTWCo @chvrch @yamahamotoraus @yamahamotorusa #yamaha #tt500c #oldschoo #thumper #4stroke #vintage #motocross #vintagemotocross #vmx #ahrma #onanysunday #motorcycle #racebike #braap #restoration #1976 #70smoto #S7N6Co #se7ensixcollective

Had a ball racing this heavy, completely stock, worn out old thumper. Finished the weekend in 7th overall in the Pre78 263+ class - a category dominated by RM YZ & Maico 2-strokes - had a few of them behind me 😎 A few tweaks needed in the forks but the 16T front sprocket made a huge difference. #ftwco #ftwcoracing #Yamaha #tt500c #oldschool #4stroke #thumpa #amateur #vmx #vintage #motocross #motorcycle #vintagemotocross #bikes #braap #classicyamaha #harrisville #xt500 #tt500 #hl500 #yamaha60years #1976 #onanysunday #se7en6Co #Se7enSiXCollectivE

Queensland Classic & Post Classic titles this weekend at Harrisville. Morning warmup done. Feeling comfortable with the taller gearing on the TT. @ftwco @chvrch @yamahamotoraus #Yamaha #tt500c #oldschool #vintage #thumpa #4stroke #1976 #70smoto #vmx #vintagemotocross #vintagemotorcycle #motocross #motorcycle #bikes #braap #ozvmx #qvmx #harrisville #ftwco #ftwcoracing #se7en6Co #Se7enSiXCollectivE

My little mate helping me with some bike prep. She doesn't usually get posted on social media but I just love this pic so had to share. @ftwco #tt500c #oldschool #thumpa #4stroke #1976 #tt500 #vintage #motorcycle #vintagemotocross #motocross #vmx #ahrma #shedbuilt #restoration #racebike #amateur #bikes #yamaha60years #xt500 #hl500 #ftwco #ftwcoracing #se7en6Co #Se7enSiXCollectivE

Fitted a 16T countershaft sprocket to the TT, needs longer legs in the straights & 1st was too short for even the tightest turns at the track, whilst 2nd required lots of clutch. Wife was stalking me in the garage... @ftwco #Yamaha #tt500c #oldschool #vintage #thumpa #4stroke #racebike #classicyamaha #vmx #motocross #motorcycle #amateur #ahrma #ozvmx #bikes #restoration #shedbuilt #ftwco #ftwcoracing #se7en6Co #Se7enSiXCollectivE
