1970 Yamaha L5T Trailmaster barn find motorcycle for sale!

This unique 100cc 2 stroke motorcycle has been in the hands of one family since it was taken from the dealership. With only 3,857 original miles, it is begging to be brought back to life. This bike was never ridden on the road due to there never being a title. Despite the bike losing it's seat over the years, everything else is original and complete. The right side handlebar controls are still with the bike, however, as you can see, they are not currently attached. A spare set of left side handlebar controls along with a small bundle of other extra spare bits come with the bike as well. When inspecting the bike, you will find the motor kicks over well and for it's age, the exhaust (and bike in general) is in good condition. No pinholes noted. The exhaust is one of the cleanest we have come across with 2 screws that have been snapped off, we expect they should come out easily however. 2 screws missing to attach the headlight front to the bucket as well. This bike never contained turn signals since it was not a street bike. 

There is not a lot of information on this particular motorcycle but seems to be well-loved nonetheless. We encourage you to search for yourself!

Buyer is responsible for shipping or picking up bike. $150.00 downpayment required to ensure purchase of bike.

Yamaha Reports Q1 2012 Results

Mon, 14 May 2012

Yamaha reported a 5.3% decrease in worldwide motorcycle sales over the first quarter of 2012 despite a 25% increase in North American sales. In the quarter ended March 31, 2012, Yamaha sold 1.599 million motorcycles worldwide, down from 1.689 million motorcycles sold over the same quarter in 2011. Most of the decline was due to Yamaha’s performance in the Asian market.

2014 AMA Supercross Daytona Results

Ryan Villopoto was dominant in Daytona, leading all 20 laps to win his third race of the season. The Monster Energy Kawasaki ride strengthened his hold on the 2014 AMA Supercross championship lead, padding his lead over Red Bull KTM riders Ryan Dungey and Ken Roczen. The reigning three-time champion was far and away the fastest racer on the Daytona International Speedway infield, posting lap times more than a second faster than anyone else.

The Japanese oddity to naming teams

Wed, 28 Jul 2010

Whenever the calendar shifts to a major Japanese race, such as the Suzuka 8hr, one of the more amusing things to do is glance down the team sheet This years highlight for me has to be team Moto Bum, with other stand outs including aprilia D.D.BOYS, Team Etching Factory Yamaha and MITO MOTO & e'freaks Honda. Looking back through the ages some of the great Japanese team names have been Burning Blood Racing Team, Dog Fight Racing and Team Moto Space amongst others.
