1973 Yamaha Other on 2040-motos
Yamaha Other description
Up for auction is a beautiful vintage 1973 Yamaha AT3 125. This is a matching numbers bike, that's in very nice condition as you can see in the pictures. It looks like it was stored in doors for many years and has been well cared for. This bike is NOT titled, as they weren't needed for dirt bikes in Montana. It fired up with one kick on a crisp fall day. It could probably use a tune up, but otherwise it runs and rides smoothly and is being sold as-is. It's loud and smokes a bit, as you'd expect from a vintage 2 stroker. Off-road tires are like new, as is the battery. Everything looks to be all original, with the exception of the front fender, although it is mounted nicely, and looks very nice on the bike.
There aren't many negatives with this one, but a few things worth mentioning: There is a small ding on the tank; two small dings on the oil tank; the seat has been repaired with black tape; one of the levers is missing the knob on the end; the bike starts and runs good, but could probably use some tuning as mentioned above; the speedometer is not currently working, although both the speedo and tachometer are in very nice condition. There is some black tape holding the carb to airbox boot in place.
Please take a close look at the pictures and ask any questions prior to bidding.
I am located in Missoula, MT, just off I-90. Many freight companies have shipping hubs here, so shipping is usually easy to coordinate and set up. I can hold this bike for up to 30 days for you or your shipper to pick it up. Deposit of $100 due on purchase, with full payment via cash or certified bank check due within 7 days after auction's close.
If you have a 0 feedback score, please message before bidding.

When Yamaha unveiled its 50th anniversary edition red and white livery for its M1 MotoGP machines in May, one question came immediately to mind: when can we get the special edition R1? The red and white design was created to celebrate Yamaha‘s 50th year in Grand Prix racing. Yamaha factory racers Jorge Lorenzo and Ben Spies debuted the livery at the Assen round in June, which saw the American Spies nab his first a career MotoGP win.Fri, 23 Aug 2013 00:00:00 -0700
Katsuyuki Nakasuga, the surprise podium finisher at last year’s MotoGP finale in Valencia, will have the chance to catch lightning in a bottle once again, after being granted a wild card entry to the 2013 Japanese Grand Prix at Motegi. Nakasuga shocked the racing world with a second-place finish at the Valencian Grand Prix last November as an injury replacement for then-Yamaha factory rider Ben Spies. Nakasuga made the cagey decision to run slick tires in the wet race.Thu, 26 Aug 2010 00:00:00 -0700
So Kenny Roberts Jnr think traction control is ruining racing? Having watched this 1981 ProAm race from Mallory Park, I'm forced to agree. Racing should be a spectacle.
