    Looks like a Yamaha FS1 (e maybe ?) circa 1975
    Some say he eats sidchrome for breakfast

    Some say he only showers on even days of the week

    Some say he put an R1 motor in a coffee machine

    All we know is he's Hewie.

        I am thinking more late 60's...I saw a similar one on ebay recently, they have the carby built into the case if I recall correctly...
        I would love to do one up, they look cool to me...

                  The SS50 was the FS1's predecessor.

                    actually the motors look different
                    especially around the gearbox

                            Or early?

                              I had an FS1E (my first bike) and it wasn't like that. For one I remember the foot pegs could be moved so that you could pedal the bike if the engine died or you ran out of petrol, etc.
