I love the sign. "Campaigning for a DRAG STRIP. Safe, legal competition. Safety valve for THE SPEED URGE"

I have been working on this vintage Japanese two stoke has been super relaxing. So well build. Super bonus points to anyone who can ID it.

I would love an RD or an RZ...but the motor I'm working on is not part of one of them.

That's one of my favorite strips of all time. I think one of the really early ones about a Zerg rush remains my favorite.

Did you see my response? I included one of the above, but also had another guess.

I admire this guy's work, but that's a sketchy front axle.

Not a Yamaha , but starts with the right letter. Think fewer wheels.

I was explicitly told by my wife not to die. Told her I've wanted to try a hydro for years and I need to do it before I get "old". A friend of mine builds them. The motor pictured is a  77 ish Yamato 80, it weighs 80lbs makes 30hp and should propel a small hydroplane to about 60mph.

When it's done bring it on by. I've always wanted a lil hydroplane and now have the perfect place to run it right in front of my home.

That's awesome.  They ran those on the Fox River in Appleton a few times when we lived up there (IIRC if was more of the flat bottom "cocktail class").

Umm, Banshee, RZ, and RD are all basically identical bottom ends. 

I was having a hard time because there was no transmission. Now we know.

I looked at building a cocktail class as well as a sea flea which are the most popular home built boats. But you can buy a retired race boat for 1000$ or so. 
The motors are the hard part, was only able to afford this because a deal was given and it had a trashed rod bearing. 
 

Friends shop for reference.
