Hindall RT-2 Yamaha Motocross
Found a week later in an e-mail in Missouri with a few other bikes. After listing the 1st one on AMSRacing.com ‘s web site.
This Harry Hindall Creation is a Motocross Model with a ’72 Yamaha RT-2MX motor in it.
This bike was owned by an Expert Motocross racer back in the day from St Loius, named Rex Graves.
His dad also owned the Yamaha shop, as well as the local Motocross race track too! When Rex was younger, say 1969 or so, Don Jones and his two boys would come through town riding the early Inter Am or Trans Am Series; they would some times stay at their house, and ride on their track to practice. Over the years Don would give Rex trick stuff. Eventually he would lead Rex to Harry Hindall to have a one-of-a-kind built, but using all of the Jones’ trick stuff We have the cancelled check from his frame order; the bike was a rocket and lightweight 196 pound with a 360 motor in it. That’s another story. Anyway, the motor has had the VIN and size (351cc) on cylinder ground away clean. Replaced with a perfect set of 250 ID numbers, and they didn’t have age group classes back then. So what class did this race in? Good story anyway. Sounds a little like it came outta Texas!
This Motocross version of the Harry Hindall RT2MX was a weapon in the Day!
