Followed me home

I hadn't really intended to buy a project bike before I got an actual running bike, but this one was too cheap to pass up. 1982 Yamaha 750 Seca.  Shaft drive, sold as-is, but owner said it ran fine when he put it in the barn 2 years ago, and it started last year.  Did not attempt to start it, but did make sure it wasn't locked up.   I didn't examine it closely, just enough to find a value estimate significantly exceeding the purchase price.   I suspect that I could flip it with nothing more than a better ad and double my investment.

I almost bypassed the ad--There was no picture, I didn't remember what a Seca was and envisioned a crotch rocket.  Styling is a bit distinctively 80's especially in the handlebars, dash and headlights.  Still better than a pseudo-Harley.

I'm still looking for a running starter bike while I get this running.
