Looking for a new winter project and on a budget? Why not pick up a killer vintage race bike that looks for the most part to be ready to roll. Add the modifications you might you need at your leisure and get something you know will be ready to roll for spring. After scouring ebay for parts we ran across this vintage Yamaha TD3 1972 Race Bike that has recently been restored and ready for Track Day.
