Your Collection: 1974 TM 75Sunday, June 24, 2012 | 6:00 AM
This weeks collection comes to us from Charlie Pausina.
My name is Charlie Pausina and I purchased this bike back in June of 2011. This was actually the first bike my brother (who is 4 years older than me) owned. He has been looking for one for about 5 or 6 years and I found this one from Ron at Decal Works (and it still ran when I got it!) and began the restoration. My brother was unaware that I purchased it and I decided this would be the ultimate Christmas gift. I stripped it down to bare bones and started hunting for, what I was unaware of, some very rare parts. The frame, triple clamps, swing arm, and hubs were all powder coated. The fenders and gas tank were painted and I painted the motor along with the exhaust. The forks, front engine cradle, and a few other miscellaneous pieces were rechromed.
