Ready to bang some trees!

Another "mistake bike" was the Yamaha SC 500. This baby had an ignition system that let timing wander all over the place, resulting in seizures when the bike was pushed hard.

No doubt about it, the single worst bike Yamaha ever made was the SC500 Scrambler. This four-speed slug seized with regularity, shook its steering head like a hooked trout, hopped around like a rabbit on diet pills and stalled when the rider least expected it. Some kind of fun machine, eh?

LOL, I am putting one back together as we speak!
