Yamaha Other description

Nice 1974 TY 175. Starts easily, pulls strongly through all 6 gears, runs and stops just the way it should.
New controls ( levers, bars, and throttle); it also comes with a reproduction TY175 seat cover that is uninstalled. Sammy Miller aftermarket footpeg kit makes for a more secure grip on the pegs.

Motor has some top end ticking noise that is louder when first starting the bike, but recedes when things are warmed up.
The tank is in good condition; one small depression on the side, and some paint fading from knee rub.

Overall, a very solid TY175; just ridden at the Hollister Ahrma National earlier this month. 
These TY's are getting harder to find...  Sold with a Bill of Sale.

Local pickup is fine; shipping arrangements to be made and paid for by purchaser.  Thanks for looking!
