Yamaha's first motorcycle was the 1 YA-1, which was a copy of the German DKW RT125, and had a 125cc, single-cylinder two-stroke engine. It was launched in February 1955 and the bike won its first race, the Mount Fuji Ascent Race, in July 1955. Yamaha continued producing two-stroke engines until it launched the XS-1 in 1969, with a 650cc two-cylinder four-stroke engine. Production of the two engine configurations continued side by side for a considerable number of years.
This Yamaha YB100 was first registered on 8th January 1982 and has only had three owners throughout its 32 years on the road. This bike is in very original condition, the mileage of 16,220 would appear to be genuine, although this is not warranted. The original bill of sale from John Riley Motorcycles, showing a purchase price of £479.45p is available in the file. We have ridden this motorcycle and she rides very well with no known faults. This is a perfectly useable, simple motorcycle, which is supplied with a V5 registration document and a full years MoT test certificate.
