1960s Yamaha's let's see them

Since we got a '60s Honda thread, I'm sure there's a few Vintage Yamaha owners out there as well. So post up some pics of yours even if they are old pics from back in "the day"
Here's a couple of mine, both original survivors:
1966 Yamaha YJ2 "Riverside"

And a 1966 Yamaha YL-1 Twin Jet

Waiting in my project queue, is this 1965 Yamaha YA-6 "Santa Barbara". Also have another complete YA-6 as a parts bike in somewhat better condition than this one, but this one has a current title. Hope to get to it in the next couple of years. I've ran the engine but it needs crank bearings, so I've also picked up a supposedly rebuilt motor just in case.

Same here. It's been on my to to-buy list for years and this thread made me want one even more.

Mine, when brand new



When Honda 160s became available, I had buyer's remorse.

It was my daily rider and never let me down in spite of the fact that I didn't know how to take care of it.

Cool pic from back in the '60s MrBob. Appears to be a '65 YDS3 "Catalina".
I always have liked the "ying yang" paint style Yamaha used on the tanks of that model as well as the first "Big Bear" Scrambler versions. Wish I could find one in decent shape today.
Such as this Big Bear.
