|Odometer reading||23,400 miles|
|Result||Sold - £5,880|
A number of machines can claim to have become cultural icons but to be known globally by its nickname is hard to top. The Yamaha FS1-E or ‘Fizzy’ holds such a crown. The sight and sound of these two strokes will instantly conjure long forgotten memories for riders of a certain generation that took their first steps on a motorcycle unaware of the thrills that lay in store.
This ‘Sixteener Special’, an early ’73 model and finished in the yellow ‘Kenny Roberts’ livery, has been extensively restored to near concours condition. In addition, recent bills include a new clutch and battery. Running very well, this period classic is offered without reserve.
