Yamaha Other description

1970 YAMAHA 360 ENDURO RT1 in beautiful condition.  1,145 miles, matching numbers on frame, engine, and federal label.  I bought this motorcycle about two years ago from another collector, it has only been used for shows during the past several decades.  Paint on the tank, fenders, and other parts is super clean, no dents, scratches, rust or damage.  All chrome is beautifully shiny, all rubber parts are soft and supple.  Original Autolube oil injection system remains fully functional, no premixing needed.  Exhaust pipe is solid, no rust, leaks or holes, the baffle is installed, and the chrome heat shield is excellent.  Chain and sprockets are clean, rust free, and in excellent condition.   Seat vinyl is soft and has no cracks, holes, or damage; seat foam is solid, seat pan is solid with no rust, cracks, or damage.  Lights, horn, and both gauges all work properly.  All levers, handles, and cables move smoothly.  Both tires and tubes were recently replaced and remain brand new.  Bike has always been stored dry of fuel, gas only added on the two occasions (including today) that I have started and operated the motorcycle.  I have put less than a mile on it in total since I acquired it.  It starts very easily, goes through all gears up and down, and the brakes are smooth.  It likely will need some tuning or adjustment as today the idle rpm was quite high until the little bit of gas that I had put in ran out.

I have the clear California title in my name, and the bike is currently registered and plated. 

Also included are:
2 original Yamaha keys
RT1 Owner's manual
RT1 Service manual
Original advertisement of this model from 1970
Cycle magazine from April 1970 with road test of this model.

The bike is located in the Los Angeles area and can easily be viewed anytime prior to auction end.  Shipping and delivery will be the sole responsibility of buyer, I can assist in loading it into a transport vehicle, or possibly can deliver it to a local Los Angeles or Long Beach shipping terminal.  Sold as-is, without warranty whatsoever expressed or implied.  This is a 46 year old used motorcycle and will have some minor wear, flaws, blemishes and imperfections, yet overall an outstanding example of the first generation Enduro in MUCH better condition than commonly available.

A $200 deposit is due upon termination of the auction, balance to be paid by cash, wire transfer, or cleared check prior to pick up.  No Paypal for balance unless you add their 3% fee.

PLEASE NOTE:  I will be out of town from Monday August 15th through Thursday August 18th and will NOT be able to be contacted between those dates.

Yamaha FZ-07 Available Stateside In July

Thu, 05 Jun 2014

Hot on the heels of the stellar FZ-09 comes its smaller displacement counterpart, the FZ-07. Priced at $6990, the new twin-cylinder FZ is set to hit dealer showroom floors this July as a 2015 model. Already available in foreign markets (our Canadian correspondent, Costa Mouzouris, reviewed the FZ-07 here) we’ve been awaiting word from Yamaha of US-bound FZ-07s with bated breath.

California Superbike School 2-day Camp at Silverstone

Mon, 24 May 2010

California Superbike School will be running a 2-day camp at Silverstone for the first time in the UK this August, offering riders a chance to enjoy extra track time while improving their skills in the art of cornering. Taking place on the all-new South circuit (1.9 miles long with 12 turns) students can ride their own bike or hire a fully prepared 2010 Yamaha R6 with the latest Dunlop Sportsmart tyres and fuel included. Already hugely popular with students returning year after year, previously the 2-day camps have been held in Spain during the spring.

EICMA 2013: 2014 Yamaha MT-07 And MT-09 Street Rally

Mon, 04 Nov 2013

Yamaha teased us with the “Rise Up Your Darkness” campaign, first introducing the FZ-09 (called the MT-09 in Europe) and its three-cylinder engine packaged in a naked frame. Now Yamaha has introduced the next motorcycle in the Darkness collection, the MT-07, effectively the MT/FZ-09′s little brother. Designed to “bring fun, affordability and enjoyment back to the street,” the MT-07 is powered by a brand new, 689cc parallel-Twin with 270-degree crank incorporating Yamaha’s “crossplane philosophy” of developing linear torque for smoother power application.
