1974 Yamaha Dt 100 Enduro on 2040-motos
Yamaha DT 100 Enduro description
Up for sale is my 1974 Yamaha DT 100 Enduro. I purchased this bike a few years ago from an estate - where it had been parked in a barn for approximately 15 years. Upon purchase, I oiled the cylinder and turned the engine. The gas tank was nearly full of varnished fuel and the carb was probably the worst I have seen.
I ordered a NOS original carb from yamatopdog.com and had the tank professionally cleaned. With a new throttle cable, carb and tank cleaning, the bike runs just as you would think a 874 mile Enduro should. It always cranks quick (cold or hot), idles and accelerates well. I have put approximately 225 miles on this bike with absolutely no issues. The only notable issues are that the front tire is slightly flat spotted and the headlight bulb is bad.
I would literally trust riding this bike anywhere. It is exceptionally quick for a 100 and will run about 62mph. The clutch feels good and the transmission shifts well. Heres a link to short video of the bike cranking and running-

As always, if you have any questions, please ask. A $200 desposit is required for purchase and the remainder is to be paid via bank transfer or cash within 7 days. The bike is to be picked up within 3 weeks.
This motorcycle comes with a GA bill of sale ONLY!!!

Last winter I managed to fill a void in my life when I stumbled on a very reasonably priced Yamaha RD350LC. It was a tad scruffy, had the wrong exhausts but most importantly it was blue and white with all numbers matching. I had the usual euphoria when the deal was done but I underestimated how much pleasure this particular purchase would continue to deliver another eight months down the line. The difference with this old bike is, instead of just taking it for the occasional ride I was talked into doing a full nut and bolt restoration. Having never taking a bike apart completely before, initially it was quite daunting but I soon found the RD is easy to work on so it turned into a truly satisfying experience. I’ve had some help from LC enthusiasts with the rebuild, however, the stripping, sourcing and organising was a total labour of love. And call me sad but it has made me bond with this bike like no other which only adds to the feel good factor. The bike cost £1800 and I’ve spent around £1000 but I reckon my mint Elsie is now worth a fair bit more. I fancy rejuvenating a Fizzy next time but there’s lots of other cheap 70’s and 80’s winter projects out there so why not have a go yourself?Thu, 20 Jan 2011 00:00:00 -0800
