    My first bike was a 1965 Yamaha YG-1 80cc rotary valve two stroke exactly like this one. Paid $175 in 1966. Came equipped with street & trail sprockets and a heavy ass solid chrome steel Bates brand bolt on skid plate under motor. Between my Dad, Brother and myself we rode this little bike everywhere; street, trails etc. Sold it for $165 when I bought my new 1969 Hodaka Ace 100. New owner promptly seized this bike a week later when he ran it out of Autolube injector oil and tried to get me to refund his money. Moron!

    I was still at school and it was too far to bike on my treadly.

    Put some trail tyres and took it everywhere. Wish I still had it.

    My first bike was this Yamaha FZX700.
    Think it was from 1986(?)
    I wanted it since the age of ten or something.
    I was way to tall for it, but could’t care less haha!

    Look at the face. Fantastic!

    If anyone ever wants to know why we ride, show ‘em that pic. :clap

    On a side note... it’s people like you that give motorcycling a bad name! :jack
