Yamaha Other description

1972 Yamaha RT1 360 With a clear Ohio Title. Frame and engine numbers match. This bike has had all the lights and wiring stripped off and has been used for mild trail riding. The oil injection is blocked off and it is being premixed. The pump is still there. The best thing about this bike is the engine. It runs very strong. Move the kick start down and you know this is great motor. No hint of any bearing noise or feel and you can hear the reeds hum. Lots of compression. The clutch action is good but does slip some when you get on it. Probably has glazed clutch plates. Not a big deal. Inside of the tank is clean. This is a great bike to restore. Titled bike numbers matching with a sound power plant. Take a good look at the pictures. You can also call me with any questions you might have 440-346-6314 ask for Bob. Buyer must make there own shipping arrangements. I will assist the best I can.

In 2005-2006, the fatal crashes per 10,000 registered motorcycles without antilock brakes was 6.6.
