Steve's StreetTracker (Yamaha DT400)

steve met warren @ the swap

steve ends up with a spare motor for his (this) lil beast...
warren ends up with some gas money and a really cool story!!

so here it is... steve's words (more or less):

This is a '74 DT360 frame with 400 motor in it. 
A Motard style is what I was after. 
I did all the work but the fiber wrapping of the tank. 
Intake was modified with a custom made boost bottle 
(old technology now but new in the '70's), 
delta force reed cage for a yz125 and a Power Mister on the carb. 
The expansion chamber was also built by me. 
I have just over $600 into the entire build including a donor motor. 
The bike even came with a MA title. 
When I registered it they had no idea what to charge me for sales tax 
and I got away with a $5 charge.
