Yamaha Other description

Buyer did not show on Friday, so re-posting.1978 Yamaha DT 400Runs - we started it yesterday. It does have a fuel leak, so we keep the tank empty. I have pre-owned it for trail riding. Great for a beginner because it has low-speed power and you can crawl up hills and don't have to be going full speed. I got too old to ride it!We stripped all of the accessories off so I wouldn't break them on the trail. They are shown in 1 of the pics.I do not have a title.$200 OBO303-two-seven-three-5867

Fri, 19 Feb 2010

ANOTHER CRACKING BIT of vintage racing footage, this time featuring multiple motorcycle world champion Phil Read on the awesome-sounding MV Agusta 500-4.The footage is from the 1974 movie 'The Iron Horse' made by Frenchman Pierre-William Glenn.Read’s 1974 500cc World Championship victory was the last year a four-stroke won the world title before the advent of the MotoGP class in 2002. Giacomo Agostini won the crown from Yamaha in 1975, followed by Suzuki-mounted Barry Sheene in '76 and '77. The footage is bloody good, considering the camera technology of the day.

THAT, MY FRIENDS, is our test rider's transportation to the 2010 Yamaha FZ8 launch in Marseille.
