    Color is/maybe wrong but it kinda looks like an early-mid '80's Yamaha XT. They had kind of odd shaped gas tanks and a wide rear fender. Just speculation though. And like all good C_list that have poor photography, I bet it used to run.....

    I agree on Yamaha... looking at the graphics on the left side of the tank, it kinda looks like it says "YAMAHA" there and that fading stripe below it. Beyond that, I have no f'ing idea.

    With a rack like that I would say that it may have started life as some sort of (Yamaha probably) Ag or Farm bike.

    I'll throw in my 2 cents. I think its a china bike of some sort,maybe a takeoff on an older XT from China.

    I looked at it for a good long time and my best guess was late 70s-early 80s enduro.

    Looks like it has a passenger peg, the colors are Yammie, and that luggage rack doesn't look like a one off...

    But from that one picture, who can know? :lol3

    I'll bid $50 :D

    Sorry I have no clue since it was probably made before I was born but someone with more time and patience than me could probably find it listed here: http://www.motorcyclespecs.co.za/
