Yamaha Other description

I got a couple of old Yami's that I'm looking to get rid of. 

They're 70's enduros.  The red one runs and rides.  Has new tires and tubes as of last year.  Also put on a new seat cover.  It stops like you would think a 40 year old bike with drum brakes does.... Poorly.  It runs good, kind of a cold blooded bastard.  But its a lot of fun, pretty dang peppy.

My buddies and I thought it would be cool to do up a couple old bikes and ride them so that's what we did.  They soon realized that we're old and have kids and wives so it's hard to get out and ride them. 

This bike has sat since last fall and I went out last week and gave it a couple kicks and it fired right up.  I took a couple laps around the property and put it back in the barn.  So yes it does run, shifts through all the gears.

Lucky for you I got a parts bike to include.  This one looks like it was street legal at some point.  When I bought them neither of them had titles.  I didn't expect the red one/ which actually came with the white mx tank and side covers to have one since it's a dirtbike.  But I didn't get one for the street legal one either.  I will write the new owner a bill of sale.
