Well after 20+ years of on/off "keeping my eyes open for the right deal" I finally came across a complete and reasonably priced Yamaha Seca 550 to scratch the itch of my adolescent years.... Flashback to the yesteryear of Don Johnson, MTV, and everything '80s & I had just bought a brandy new 1986 Interceptor 500 and my best friend picked up a clean '82 red/white Seca 550 w/factory fairing and together we terrorized the streets for many years and many miles together. Even though only a couple years old with not so many miles on it, that Seca sure seemed dated by 1986 standards and was affectionately nicknamed "the scooter with a pipe" because of it's Gemini 4-1 exhaust (that actually made it sound like a real bike!). Anywho, recently during my usual interweb perusing, came across what I hope to be the perfect time machine to transport me back to my glory days, if only briefly. She's a mostly complete, 1-titled owner 1981 Seca 550 w/factory fairing in white/red scheme. So while not quite 100% "the" bike my buddy had back in the day, it's close enough, mostly unmolested, and should be fairly painless to get back on the road and save another survivor from the scrap heap or the hands of some backyard butcher that watched too many episodes of "watch me hack up a perfectly good motorcycle and pretend I'm Jesse James or Roland Sands". Once my collection of parts arrives, I'll post some pics and info in the regular forum sections.
