In the 1960's, John Taylor of Schenectady, New York decided to begin building in the United States, a dual-purpose motorcycle, that would not only compete with European enduro-type motorcycles, but excel by being more powerful, better built, more reliable, and faster. Below is a picture of a 1971 Yankee Z motorcycle. It's 100% original, right down to the "Full Bore" tires. There were only about 760 of this model built by Yankee Motor Company back in the early '70's.

Awesome bike. I had a drawing of that bike that I did in high school. I wanted one so bad! The Honda dealer had one, and also an Ossa twin.
