1982 Yamaha Seca 400 Purple (Killer)

Photo of a 1982 Yamaha Seca 400 Purple (Killer)

No longer owned


Rescued from the St. Louis Flood in 1993, fixed it up and got it running. Got to ride it enough to fill the gas tank twice, and then wrecked it. The secret is to keep your eye on the road. I didn't. Some old biddy decided to stop and make a left from a regular lane (chose not to use the luxurious turn lane next to it) and I hit the guy that stopped short right behind her. I was doing about 45 MPH and didn't have time to do anything but turn my head back to what was in front of me and say "OH". Not even time to say OH SH!T!

Oh well. The photo was from the net, it's not me in the pic, I only have video of the bike AFTER the accident.


The factory 400 engine, the most kick ass shade of Purple metallic I've ever seen.


Heads ported and polished.
