This is not a barn find, it is a basement find. Was originally bought for a young girl whom kept it from new until I bought it from her. There has been no paint sprayed on it anywhere to try to hide anything. The only things that are not original are the petcock, carb, spark plug, and battery. Has the original tool kit. Gas tank has been sealed. Matching numbers. Extremely nice original condition with 1283 miles, yes I said 1283 original miles! Starts on the 1st or 2nd kick. Purrs like a cat. The original tires have lots of tread, but do have some cracking. They do not leak. The horn works when motor is revved up. The lights work and get brighter when revved up. The blinkers light up and get brighter when revved up but do not blink. Drives and shifts like it should. The winning buyer will not be disappointed with this motorcycle. In my opinion on a scale of 1-10 it is a 9...Winning buyer responsible for shipping. Must be picked up within 30 days. Bike is sold without any warranty. I only accept paypal or cash in person. If paying with cash a $250 nonrefundable down payment is required thru paypal at the end of the auction the rest will be cash before bike leaves my house. I do have a clear title. I will work with your shipping company that you hire.... Relisting due to a non paying bidder.

ENGINE) installed just a little prior to when the Original Owners health deteriorated & the bike was placed into storage ..(The 1970 Brand new Engine replacement can Be Proven because typically these YAMAHA Replacement engines numbers have not been stamped yet)..

This Wonderful Bike Starts Super Easy & Runs GREAT Her Clutch , Control cables & Brakes All work Great ! I had the Seat Professionally "Rebuilt from the Frame Up" and we Nearly completely dissembled this wonderful Bike & also Refinished most All of Her Main Components were cleaned, repainted and then my Mechanic and I re-assembled her "by hand" piece by piece. She has BOTH a Front Dunlap tread style Trials Universal Style re-issue Tires ! & a NICE PIRELLI Trials Universal Style re-issue Rear Tire ! & I will be including FREE to the Lucky New Owner Two Brand New Reissue Street legal tires & Tubes. Again, This Magnificent Beauty Starts Great + Runs Amazing & She Shifts & Stops Excellent etc etc + all of her Control cables Brakes Etc Etc all seem to work Great as Well.Her Prior owner used her very rarely and also re-purposed her for more off-road use but, as you can see I have re-installed all of her head & Tail lights etc again and if you want to run a battery I will be INCLUDING "FREE" a "BRAND NEW" battery in it's N.O.S. box for her... ! It looks like her Headlight & Taillights look to be present & look to be in fairly good Shape. But, I have not spent any time to figure out what it will take to get the lights electrically re-hooked up & working etc.as these are VERY VINTAGE RACE-Able bikes so there is a Very High Likelihood that this Beauty may end up as a Vintage Dirt Racer ?? Here is some More GREAT NEWS ! I have the DMV Computer Print Out on This Wonderful Bike & because she has been in storage for so long she is 100% off the DMV Computers & Therefore..She is 100% Free & 100% Clear of ANY and ALL back fees, 100% Free & 100% Clear of any and all back registrations & 100% Free & Clear of any and all back penalties as she has been in Dry Covered Storage so long that she is 100% off the DMV system at this time (& I will be including the DMV PComputer print out that Proves all of this) also, Included with This Wonderful Bike...I will be including a California DMV (NOTARIZED) "Transfer of Ownership" (Notarized, Equiv. of a Bill of Sale) from myself to you the new owner.. which from what I hear in neighboring states, should be what you need to register it if you live outside of California. ... If you just want to Vintage Race this bike... the DMV "Bill of Sale" is all you will need...Again, YES ! ..I will also include the California Department of Motor Vehicles Current DMV Computer Print Out on this Wonderful Bike that shows & Proves that because this Beauty was in Covered dry storage for the past aprox. FOUR+ Decades & because of this... (after typically aprox. 7-8 years here in California) there are No current DMV Computer records (WHICH IS REALLY GOOD NEWS) on this Wonderful bike & therefore there should be NO back fees and NO back taxes etc etc. etc. owed on this Wonderful Dual Purpose 250cc YAMAHA ENDURO or Vintage racing Bike. If you live inside California & If you race Vintage Bike Meets on Private MotoCross Tracks or (Vintage Bike Shows etc) the Notarized Calif. DMV "Bill of Sale" is all you will need. If for some reason ..you want to go cow trail ridding on California etc Government National Forest Land etc land & feel you a may want a National Forest etc DMV "Green Sticker" Or if you want a current License plate sticker to be able to street legal ride this Wonderful Dual Purpose Beauty...My Vehicle Registration Office said that because this bike had been in covered storage for many years (Approx. the last 4 decades) therefore if you live here in California & feel for some reason you want or feel you need a California Forestry Land Green sticker (to ride in Government Forest etc land) Again ...it will be Easy because this bike is currently 100% off the DMV Computer books & therefore there will be NO back fees NO Back License fees, & NO BAck Taxes etc etc (Again, Typically here in Calif.. Again, after about 8 years DMV records fall off the DMV Computers) (This Wonderful Bike has been in Dry Storage for DECADES) and Again, this California National Forest sticker is not required or Current Calif License Tags are not usually required for MX & Other Race tracks and also NOT required for Vintage Bike & Classic Car Shows etc etc etc here in California & a California Nat. Forest Green sticker is not required if you live out of state etc etc etc)....& YES! ...she is all ready to transfer into your name ..In Calif. if you have current street tags you have to have ongoing Insurance on a Licensed so that is why most collectors allow their collection bikes to fall off the DMV Computers...& it is a Fairly Easy Process to get a vehicle back on the street again if that is what you want to do with her.... >* * * If these have not been done * Please Note *... You will be in default of this auction. & will naturally lose your deposit if the winning bidder flakes out & is not responsible on the funding of this AMAZING Vintage Racing Beauty .* * * ....Provided this is paid off (in required three (3) M-S days) I am willing to store the it for up to 2 weeks in my garage from close of auction while you arrange pickup & I will gladly assist you with shipping to any International or Domestic Shipper in the Los Angeles Harbor area.Seller reserves the right to the close of this auction at his discretion prior to the end of this auction .

YOU need to get the quotes yourself ...& Therefore...(IE) you will need to get your own quotes for shipping, I believe ebay my have a shipping service for vehicles... also, UShip.com is very competitive if you take your time & get plenty of shipping Bids for this ... * * About a year ago Someone bought my 1975 400 Yamaha Enduro (which Weights I think a little more than this Wonderful Bike) & the YAMAHA 400 Enduro cost about $ 325 to go from here (Los Angeles, Calif.) to North Carolina. & a 400 YAMAHA IT ENDURO to Florida went for under $ 300...PLEASE NOTE: My Home is a GREAT Place to get a Shipping Quote From !!! (IE) I live just ~5 Miles North of the Los Angeles (Long Beach) Harbor (LA IS THE LARGEST SHIPPING PORT IN THE WORLD") & ~8 Miles South of the Los Angeles "Commercial District".. so "EVERY DAY A Zillions ("MANY") Trucks".. Leave this area to go to the Entire rest of the Country ...(IE) all you need to do is find a truck that has a little extra space & Trust me their Rates will be FAR Better than someone that the is no where near this area & trip is not on their way & or Not Convenient for them or ??? . Therefore, the more Quotes you get the Better the Shipping Rate will be to your home (So "YES" get lots of Quotes). Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions..... P.S. be sure to tell Each Shipper that this is a fairly "LIGHT" weight bike (I believe, approx. 250 pounds) dual purpose bike and NOT a 700+ pound Harley etc. (TANK) or something (IE) Trust Me.."Mentioning that Fact will Save you a lot of Money") ...I live in Long Beach (Lakewood Village Country Club Subdivision), California Zip = 90808

I think She is a Bargain as a Nice Example of a SUPER LOW HOUR Very Presentable 1970 DT-1 (That is really the last of the TRUE Original Series DT-1's that was Just cosmetically restored ! ! ! a 1968-1971 DT-1 like this NADA Value Guides for nearly $7,000.00 ( $6,700.00 to be exact ! ! !) & Best of All this Beauty has SO Little Use on Her as she has been in storage for ~FOUR DECADEs...We Inspected her engine & just had her Transmission Rebuilt & "YES"...She Runs GREAT ! > > * * * PLEASE NOTE: This Wonderful "1970" 250cc YAMAHA DT1 ENDURO.That still has the Majority of the Original DT-1 Main Components as listed here...& as you can see ..we added in the following details ...

She also has the Original Style 1968 thru 1970 Early (ORIGINAL) style steel lower Fork Legs (& Not the 1971 & newer thicker chunkier style fork legs)...Therefore, to my eyes & most other motorcycle Enthusiasts (unless you are some kind of a concourse nit picker or something) ...I think, very few things would give this Wonderful Bike away (That she is not a Very First Year ..1968 Original "FIRST" Series 250 YAMAHA DT-1 ENDURO ) ! ! ! ! ...( Think about it ...."When was the last time you or most anyone else have actually saw a real deal 1970 YAMAHA 250 ENDURO running right in front of you" ? So yes ! I Think that is Nothing Short of Super Cool ! ....I consider the 1970 DT-1 to be the very last year that really looks like the Original Series 1968-1970 Style Looks & YES ! being a 1970 She ..YES! She Has an ORIGINAL YAMAHA's First Generation DT-1 "FAR MORE COLLECTABLE" FIRST GENERATION "Original Piston Port" Style Engine which I have been told over the years is "FAR More VINTAGE "AHRMA" RACE-ABLE" ! ! ! ! The NADA Value Guide Price of a 1979 is exactly the same as a 1968 1969 & 1970 But in 1972 the price drops a lot !!!!!! * * * PLEASE NOTE & IMPORTANT PLEASE READ THIS (& the Entire Auction) BEFORE Bidding on this Wonderful Classic Bike: This Wonderful 1970 250 YAMAHA DT1 ENDURO We Cosmetically restored the Wonderful Low Miles (4758 miles 1970 YAMAHA DT-1 Also Please Note: I have been running her for several days up & down my street & YES!

With Her Newly January 2017 rebuilt Transmission She Runs & Shifts GREAT & Her Clutch brakes etc works GREAT" IN THEIR OPERATION" As Well! ! ! I started this Wonderful Classic on ebay at just under $3,000.00 Which I think is a Bargain as a Nice Example of a SUPER LOW HOUR Just cosmetically restored 1968-1971 DT-1 like this NADA Value Guides for nearly $7,000.00 ( $6,700.00 to be exact ! ! !) & Best of All this Beauty has SO Little Use on Her as she has been in storage for ~FOUR DECADEs.. I need the space here ASAP & I therefore also need to cash out this Wonderful Bike ..as I am losing my Vintage Bike Storage next door & also ..& I could use the $ for some end of the year expenses. Therefore, I have Aggressively Discounting This MAGNIFICENT Classic I think she is nearly a Really Nice Great Running Classic Beauty) ...You should be able to "Make Out Like a Bandit" on this Legendary Classic ORIGINAL 1968-71 SERIES ("THE VERY BEST of ALL DT-1 ENDURO's") ! ! ! !

Also ...Think about how little use is on this Beauties Chassis ONLY 4758 miles & how long (~40) years she has been in Dry Covered storage ! ! ! ! ! ! & also Think About it...Where can you find another 1968-70 DT-1 Like this ...these days ...nearly "HALF A CENTURY LATTER" ..in nearly 2017 !!!! !!!!!!!! * * Lucky You.. can be the First New Owner Since this Bike has Just had a Beautiful Cosmetic Restoration ...

ENGINE) installed just prior to when the Original Owners health deteriorated & the bike was placed into storage ..(The 1970 Brand new Engine replacement can Be Proven because these YAMAHA Replacement engines numbers are YAMAHA Factory Blank)..

She has "SUPER LOW MILES" and She Has an ORIGINAL FACTORY REPLACEMENT ~1970 YAMAHA 250 Replacement ENGINE) ..& She has Spent the majority of her Life in Covered Dry Storage !

Again, This Magnificent Beauty Starts Great + Runs Amazing & She Shifts & Stops Excellent etc etc + all of her Control cables Brakes Etc Etc all seem to work Great as Well.Her Prior owner used her very rarely and also re-purposed her for more off-road use but, as you can see I have re-installed all of her head & Tail lights etc again and if you want to run a battery I will be INCLUDING "FREE" a "BRAND NEW" battery in a box for her... ! It looks like her Headlight & Taillights look to be present & look to be in fairly good Shape. But, I have not spent any time to figure out what it will take to get the lights electrically re-hooked up & working etc.as these are VERY VINTAGE RACE-Able bikes so there is a Very High Likelihood that this Beauty may end up as a Vintage Dirt Racer ?? * * Please Note * * Very Recently (December 2014) this auctions bikes' cousins (IE) that were also built by us side by side to this auctions bike) the other Two of our bikes > a Vintage Racing 1978 RM 250 SUZUKI (Yellow) & also our 73 Tribute Vintage Racing ELSINORE CR 250 (Green / Aluminum) we Displayed at the "WORLDS LARGEST" MOTORCYCLE SHOW" (the Los Angeles Cycle World / Progressive Motorcycle Show, (Los Angeles, California Area)..in Our "Vintage Japanese Motorcycle Clubs" Booth earlier (December 6, 7 & 8th 2013). Look to the right of the 3rd pictures which shows a Local Los Angeles TV News Crew interviewing Our V.J.M.C. Clubs President (in the Red & White Shirt) on the Shows Opening day ! ! ! * * *PLEASE NOTE: Over the last three years we have shown "EIGHT" Vintage Motorcycles in the V.J.M.C. Booth At This Show Alone !!!! > PLEASE NOTE:Above are 6 Pictures are "NOT" of this auctions bike but are of this bikes cousins (IE) (of the first 4 pictures..one =this auction's bikes cousin a 1978 RM 250 Brother) (IE) as above we also built these two other bikes we also built & cosmetically restored our other Vintage Racing: the (Yellow) 1978 SUZUKI RM 250's & the (Aluminum & Green) Vintage CR Elsinore 250 Vintage Race bike (Dec. 2014) we Displayed at the "WORLDS LARGEST" MOTORCYCLE SHOW" (the Cycle World / Progressive Motorcycle Show, (Los Angeles, California area)..in Our "Vintage Japanese Motorcycle Clubs" Booth earlier (December 2014). Also, The White & Black Suzuki Road Racer at the end of he row next to our VJMC clubs sign (3 bikes to the right of our yellow 250 RM Suzuki)... was one of two bikes of it's Exact type in Existence (a 700ccSquare 4 "Two Stroke" w/ 4 Rotary Valves..Yep ! She is a BREAST ! ) and I was told by most everyone there that she was Pretty much "Priceless" ! The two Bikes in between ours & this were two 4 Cylinder "Two Stroke" YAMAHA a GP 500 & a GP 700 like my Hero the GREAT Kenny Roberts became a WORLD CHAMPION on !!! Here is some More GREAT NEWS ! I have the DMV Computer Print Out on This Wonderful Bike & She is 100% Free & 100% Clear of ANY and ALL back fees, 100% Free & 100% Clear of any and all back registrations & 100% Free & Clear of any and all back penalties as she has been in storage so long that she is 100% off the DMV system at this time. Included with This Wonderful Bike...I will be including a California DMV (NOTARIZED) "Transfer of Ownership" (Notarized, Equiv. of a Bill of Sale) from myself to you the new owner.. which from what I hear in neighboring states, should be what you need to register it if you live outside of California. ... If you just want to Vintage Race this bike... the DMV "Bill of Sale" is all you will need...Again, YES ! ..I will also include the California Department of Motor Vehicles Current DMV Computer Print Out on this Wonderful Bike that shows & Proves that because this Beauty was in Covered dry storage for the past aprox. THREE Decades & because of this... (after typically aprox. 7-8 years here in California) there are No current DMV Computer records (WHICH IS REALLY GOOD NEWS) on this Wonderful bike & therefore there should be NO back fees and NO back taxes etc etc. etc. owed on this Wonderful Dual Purpose 250cc YAMAHA ENDURO or Vintage racing Bike. If you live inside California & If you race Vintage Bike Meets on Private MotoCross Tracks or (Vintage Bike Shows etc) the Notarized Calif. DMV "Bill of Sale" is all you will need. If for some reason ..you want to go cow trail ridding on California etc Government National Forest Land etc land & feel you a may want a National Forest etc DMV "Green Sticker" Or if you want Licnese plates to be able to street legal ride this Wonderful Dual Purpose Beauty...My Vehicle Registration Office said that because this bike had been in covered storage for many years (Approx. the last 3 decades) therefore if you live here in California & feel for some reason you want or feel you need a California Forestry Land Green sticker (to ride in Government Forest etc land) Again ...it will be Easy because this bike is currently 100% off the DMV Computer books & therefore there will be NO back fees NO Back License fees, & NO BAck Taxes etc etc (Again, Typically here in Calif.. after about 8 years DMV records fall off the DMV Computers) (This Wonderful Bike has been in Dry Storage for DECADES) and Again, this California National Forest sticker is not required or Current Calif License Tags are not usually required for MX & Other Race tracks and also NOT required for Vintage Bike & Classic Car Shows etc etc etc here in California & a California Nat. Forest Green sticker is not required if you live out of state etc etc etc)....& YES! ...she is all ready to transfer into your name ..In Calif. if you have current street tags you have to have ongoing Insurance on a Licensed so that is why most collectors allow their collection bikes to fall off the DMV Computers...& it is a Fairly Easy Process to get a vehicle back on the street again if that is what you want to do with her.... >* * * If these have not been done * Please Note *... You will be in default of this auction. & will naturally lose your deposit if the winning bidder flakes out & is not responsible on the funding of this AMAZING Vintage Racing Beauty .* * * ....Provided this is paid off (in required three (3) M-S days) I am willing to store the it for up to 2 weeks in my garage from close of auction while you arrange pickup & I will gladly assist you with shipping to any International or Domestic Shipper in the Los Angeles Harbor area.Seller reserves the right to the close of this auction at his discretion prior to the end of this auction .

This Fairly Rare Early 1970's TS 400cc Beauty (that I think Looks a bit like a early 1970's SUZUKI 400 Like Roger DeCoster's 400 Race Bike with lights ) So.. I guess this is a Tribute Style bike. This bike was only used a couple of years and was not ridden hard at all (as you can see her Near Perfect Engine cases, Alloy Fork Legs, Low slung Original factory Down Pipe, Rubber foot pegs & Rims rear fenders etc etc Show very well !! This wonderful Bike was Originally Sold here in Southern Calif Originally as a Dual Purpose" STREET BIKE the owner lived near the national Forest area & so he re-purosed the bike for more off road use & after a while sold his cabin & since that time this Wonderful Bike has sat in Dry Storage Since aprox.1979 according to the Original Owner till we started her Cosmetic Restoration earlier this year ...that we are just now completing !!!!! Her Original 1974 Seat Which was Rebuilt from the frame Up & Looks & Feels Great !!!!) I think This STUNNING , VERY SPIRITED & GOOD RUNNING Bike is a DREAM ! These TS 400 bikes are FAR MORE FORGIVING & Less Explosive to Ride as compared to a Dirt Racing only TM 400's & RM 400 as the TS 400 have a little more Torque, Smoother Running + Better Idling (Due to her FAR Greater flywheel Action) & Therefore These AMAZING TS 400s are Far More Controllable & FAR Easier to Start compared to the Typical 400cc TM & RM 400 Dirt Racers....* * PLEASE NOTE: this TS 400 (a TS is a lot like suzuki's Street Legal version of the 400 TM or to a lesser degree a little like a RM 400 W/Lights SUZUKI Is I think this may be one of the latter more refined years of the FAR Simpler & FAR More RELIABLE & DURABLE Vintage RACE-ABLE Air Cooled TS 400 Two Stroke Engines & I believe this is also a "Vintage Race-able ..Original SuZuki TS 400 style Piston Port + Original style DUAL SHOCK, REAR SWING ARM SUSPENSION SYSTEM" this makes this TS 400 a little like a TM 400 or to a lesser degree a RM 400 ..Like the earlier TS 400's.... Best of all these are designed as a Street Legal ENDURO "DUAL SPORT" ENDURO Street Use Etc etc & Not just Dirt Racing ...Please keep in mind She has all of her Charging Circuit+Lights are present..But, this bike was re-purposed off road so will need all lights+gadges re wired & reconnected Again to Be 100% street legal again....I have sold several of SUZUKI TS 's, PE 's and YAMAHA IT 's to people that make them into a more Street " Bobber " (Cafe Racers) Bikes .. (3 went to just Miami Florida ! this year alone !!!) Many People also use these for Vintage Dirt & ENDURO RACING Bikes ... Again...She is a Fairly LOW HOUR Bike that was owned by an older gentleman & she sat in Covered Storage for the Majority of her Life..(Again, his was owned by an older Gentleman who owned this for many years & this has always been a "Southern California Bike" as she has been here in CALIFORNIA to the best of my knowledge the Bulk of her Life !!! & Best of all She STARTS SUPER EASY & just as she sits I think She RUNS VERY GOOD Again.. More Importantly she appears that she was used not very hard & also Very Little in Her lifetime (Look at her Engine Cases, Alloy Lower Fork Legs, Rubber Foot pegs, Rims, Her Original Low slung Down Pipe etc, etc,.etc .. . .... & also PLEASE NOTE: Her new owner just did a lot of extensive engine Rebuilding on Her a couple of Months ago...Since then We are just completing her Brand New cosmetic Restoration (as Detailed & Listed above & below etc.. (No More & No less)...& "YOU" can be the LUCKY Very First Owner of this Beautiful Bike since Her Cosmetic Restoration was completed ! * * PLEASE NOTE: the TS 400 (is a lot like an RM W/Lights SUZUKI Is I think "The VERY last year of the FAR Simpler & FAR More Vintage RACE-ABLE Air Cooled Two Stroke Engines & I believe this is the First YEAR of the DUAL SHOCK Vintage Race-able REAR "ALLOY" SWING ARM SUSPENSION SYSTEM" this makes this TS 400 FAR More like a RM 400 than Earlier PE 400s were. ...& YES ! .! I have also, the Current DMV Current computers Print out on this Wonderful Bike and she is "Free & Clear" (IE) She Has "NO" back taxes, "NO" back fees & "NO" Back Taxes etc etc owing on this bike at this time ...Please see further Title information listed below Paperwork details for this Vintage DUAL SPORT ENDURO Motorcycle: This Beauty has been in Storage for ~35 years & therefore has fallen off the DMV System computers (IE) ..Which is Really Good News as this means the bike is free & Clear of any Back fees taxes etc etc ).... & YES ! ....I have also, the DMV Current Computers Print out on this Wonderful Bike that Proves: she is 100% free & Clear of any Back fees again this means she has "NO" back fees & "NO" Back Taxes, & "NO" Back registration fees & "NO" Back Penalties etc etc owing on this bike at this time ! ! ! . ...I will Also be including a California DMV (Notarized) "Bill of Sale" (Transfer of Ownership") from myself to you the new owner.. which from what I hear in neighboring states, should be what you need to register her In California as a 100% Legal Street Bike & if you live outside of California. ... If you just want to Vintage Race this bike... the DMV "Bill of Sale" is all you will need..Again, I will also include the California Department of Motor Vehicles Current DMV Computer Print Out on this Wonderful Bike that shows & Proves that because this Beauty was in storage for the past Three + decades & because of this... there are "NO" current DMV Computer records (AGAIN, WHICH IS REALLY GOOD NEWS) on this Wonderful bike & therefore there should be "NO" back fees "NO" Back registration Fees and "NO" back taxes etc etc. owed on this Wonderful "Dual Sport" ENDURO Bike. If you live inside California & want to take this to Vintage Bike Shows & or If you Race Vintage Bike Meets on Private Moto Cross Tracks or (Vintage Bike Meets etc) the Notarized Calif. DMV "Bill of Sale" is all you will need. If for some reason ..Again, If you would like to register this bike for 100% Street Use Or If you want to go cow trail ridding on California etc Government National Forest Land etc land & feel you a may want a National Forest etc DMV "Green Sticker" My Vehicle Registration Office said that because this bike had been in covered storage for SOooo many years (the last 3+ decades) therefore if you live here in California & feel for some reason you want or feel you need a California Forestry Land Green sticker (to ride in Government Forest etc Land) or get her back in the System again for a Street Legal b bike Again it will be Easy because this bike is currently "Off the DMV Computer records System" & therefore Again..there will be"NO" back fees (as after about 10 or 12 years DMV records fall off the DMV Computers) and Again, this California National Forest sticker or street Tags & Registration etc etc is not required for MX & Other Race tracks and also NOT required for Vintage Shows & Vintage Bike Meets etc etc etc here in California & a California Nat. Forest Green sticker is not required if you live out of state etc etc ....*..Most M/C RACING Enthusiasts Agree the SUZUKI Vintage Dual Purpose TS 400, 400 PE's and 400 RMs are one of the Most Beautiful Most Reliable, Most Responsive, Fastest.. Vintage Bikes of this Era...EVER MADE ! For a Large Displacement 400cc Originally Intended by SUZUKI to be a Street Legal This Wonderful Bike I think She feels very Light Weight & AMAZINGLY NIMBLE + Well Balance & She Feels Very Light, Natural & Extremely AGILE...I & Most Enthusiasts believe, These TS 400s + TM's & RM's etc Vintage Racing SUZUKI's are "WORLD CLASS" Motocross Vintage Dirt Racing Motorcycles !

Everyone I have talked to as (Well as N.A.D.A. Value Guide) states that a Really Nice TS 400 would sell for ..Also, Recently, I have seen several of these bikes that were Very Beat & Very Faded Not much left of them & (totally UN restored & without their engines being rebuilt like with this AMAZING Beauty has just had done to her) selling for MORE $$$$ than my Ridiculously Low Buy It Now Price" & Again, This Bike has had Her Engine Extensively Rebuilt & the other bikes again they were ALL UN (NOT) Beautifully Cosmetically Restored, & NOT having their engines Rebuilt & looked to be fairly (VERY) Beat, Raw, UN-Cosmetically restored or Rebuilt etc..& More importantly all were UN-(NOT) Beautifully transformed to look like as Nice & did not Run As GREAT as this Beauty! & don't forget this Wonderful bike was in covered Storage for the better part (the Bulk) of it's life (Approx. 35+ years !!!!!!) & you will be the First New Owner since her Wonderful cosmetic restoration as detailed in this auction. Again..These Beautiful 1974 SUZUKI TS 400s Should Prove to be a very Nice & Very Competitive Vintage Racer ! Compared to many Earlier Vintage Race Bikes the Front & Rear Suspension Travel (with Easily Tune-able Vastly Superior Air/Oil tune-able Front Forks + Longer Travel Dual Rear upgraded Shock Struts) & I have been told these had Better Aluminum Legged Front Forks even slightly MORE Use-able Horsepower than earlier year TS 400's & TS 250s ! ! !

This Vintage Racing 1974 SUZUKI TS 400 has her Original SUZUKI Tuned Exhaust with a New . & She Looks to have Her Original Factory SUZUKI TS 400 seat REBUILT From The FRAM UP !!!. We also Cleaned the Entire Fuel system & added a Quality Inline Fuel Filter & her Original Owner added a Brand New "UNI" High Performance Tube Style Air Cleaner Element, & "We Installed The VERY BEST "MODAL" Trans Mission Oil". The Front and rear suspension visually looked good & it's Suspension seals did not appear to be leaking at this time so other than to clean them & refinished the lower Alloy fork legs etc etc (IE) as far as fluid levels etc. they are just as we received them and we have not tested the suspension as we are just now getting the Bike Running again & completing the cosmetic restoration on this Beautiful Bike, Over and Beyond this...In Her Cosmetic Restoration process..We removed most Every Main Component on the bike...nearly all the way down to her "Bare Frame" + Cleaned & refinished most every main component then hand reassembled ~every main item back onto her frame again "Piece by Piece"..

We also cleaned, painted & refinished the; Frame, Hubs, Spokes, Exhaust Pipe (Tuned Exhaust system) & Her Original SUZUKI Exhaust System. She has Headlight & Taillight etc & we repainted her Nice Front fender & her rear fender etc.& we painted everything to match to a look very close to what I think a street able Tribute to ROGER DeCOSTERs Early 1970's MX race bike looked like a lot like a TM 400's & RM's would have looked NEW like back in the day ! . We installed Brand New High Quality Vintage style rubber handlebar Hand Grips. Her Transmission Gears Shift GREAT Her Clutch Releases & Grips GREAT !!!

In the past I have had a lot of emails with shipping quotes all over the map...Therefore, When you try and Get a Shipping Quote... I would try & get several (many) shipping quotes (& get a estimated pick up date in writing) before you commit or finalize a deal & or make a deposit) with a shipper... as one of the last bikes I sold out of our collection went to North Carolina via USHIP.COM, (which is about 3,000 miles from here)...it was a 1975 YAMAHA 400 Enduro which weights nearly about double of what this auctions Magnificent 1974 400 Suzuki Vintage Racing Beauty Weights & he was only charged about 330 US dollars a few months ago...I think ebay may have a shipping site, but if you want a very competitive rate I would go thru Uship.com & get "Lots of Bids"...Keep in mind, I live Very Close to the Business Hub of Los Angeles & Also the L.A. Harbor areas & Millions of Trucks leave this area every day all you need to do is find a truck that has a little space & that is headed in your direction & I am sure the price would be a lot better for you than with some trucker that is not ! Again, If you need a shipper I would get "Lots of Quotes" (I have always had Great Luck with USHIP.COM & plan on "the rates will vary widely" (IE) as a trucker that is already here in Los Angeles Area & is already planning on going your direction will be a lot different rate than someone that is not already here & is not going in your direction...Also, please remind the trucking Co. you are getting the quote from that ..."This bike is a small nimble + very simple dirt bike & ONLY weights about 270 Pounds" (It is NOT a "HUGE" 700 pound Harley etc) So the Shipping rate should be FAR Cheaper & Should definitely reflect that difference.Also, If it will get you a better Shipping Rate Also, I will deliver this bike to any Los Angeles Area Based Shippers Distribution yard for "FREE" & or if you live out of the Country I will deliver this Bike to any Los Angeles Based International Shipper yard in the Los Angles Area for FREE !!!!!!!!!!!!!! "PLEASE NOTE": RESERVE IS JUST A VERY FEW OF DOLLARS BELOW THE BUY IT NOW PRICE (WHICH I HAVE ALREADY LOWERED Aprox $500.00 ) For a Quick "No Brainer" Sale......So If YOU WANT THIS BIKE "THE BUY IT NOW" Price is about what it will take to get Her...If You wait till the auctions end you may get into a Bidding war ...& It could end up Way Past that amount ....& This is " One of the Last Years" of these Fairly Rare 1970's TS 400 & RM Suzuki VINTAGE RACE-able BIKES That is one of the very Last Years of the SUPER DEPENDABLE & FAR MORE DURABLE "Air Cooled TS 400's & I believe the First year with (which probably cost SUZUKI FAR More than a junk Steel Swing Arm & as you can see these Vintage Race-able "DUAL SHOCK" Rear Suspension are FAR SUPERIOR as compared to earlier Suspensions etc ! Happy Bidding .... >>" data-tid="yui_3_16_0_1_1450401376106_9806" class="tab-content" style="visibility: visible;">

Which Makes this FAR More Vintage Raceable as this again I think this was the Very last year of the Piston Port Induction AMAZING Air Cooled HONDA ELSINORE CR 125M !!! & I believe these CR 125M to be ..a Very Spirited & I think should be a "A Potentially, Competitive Vintage Racing bike" & I am offering this for a Small Fraction of that amount with a "Buy it Now" (Believe it or Not)...of well under 2K US dollars which may sound like a fair amount of money but consider this...." Everyone I have talked to as (Well as N.A.D.A. Value Guide) states that a Really Nice CR 125M would sell for well over DOUBLE that Amount !! ..Also, Recently, I have seen several of these bikes that were Very Beat & Very Faded Not much left of them ...TOTALLY UN-LIKE THIS AMAZING BEAUTY was just had a cosmetic Restoration had done to her) selling for MORE $$$$ than my Ridiculously Low Buy It Now Price" & again they were ALL UN (NOT) Beautifully Cosmetically Restored like this wonderful Bike, & NOT having almost Brand New tires etc etc etc & again most bikes I have seen in this bikes price range.... looked to be (VERY): Beat, Raw, UN-Cosmetically restored or Rebuilt etc..& More importantly all were UN-(NOT) Beautifully transformed to look like as Nice & did not Run As GREAT as this Beauty! & don't forget this Wonderful bike was in covered Storage for the better part (the Bulk) of it's life (Approx. 30+ years !!!!!!) & you will be the First New Owner since her Wonderful cosmetic restoration as detailed in this auction.

We also cleaned, painted & refinished the; Frame, Hubs, Spokes, Exhaust Pipe (Tuned Exhaust system) & Her Original HONDA CR 125 Down Pipe Exhaust System. We repainted her Nice Front fender & her rear fender etc.& we painted everything to match to a look very close to what I think a 1973-4 Vintage RACING CR 125M Tribute Built from a 1976 CR 125 ELSINORE race bike should look like & or would have looked NEW like back in the day ! . We installed Brand New High Quality Vintage style rubber handlebar Hand Grips. Her Transmission Gears Shift GREAT, Her Clutch Releases & Grips GREAT !!!

I would try & get several (many) shipping quotes (& get a estimated pick up date in writing) before you commit or finalize a deal & or make a deposit) with a shipper... as one of the last bikes I sold out of our collection went to North Carolina via USHIP.COM, (which is about 3,000 miles from here)...it was a 1975 YAMAHA 400 Enduro which weights nearly about double of what this auctions Magnificent 1976 HONDA ELSINORE CR 125M Vintage Racing bike Beauty Weights ( I would estimate only about 195 pounds!!!) & he was only charged about 330 US dollars a few months ago...I think ebay may have a shipping site, but if you want a very competitive rate I would go thru Uship.com & get "Lots of Bids"...Keep in mind, I live Very Close to the Business Hub of Los Angeles & Also the L.A. Harbor areas & Millions of Trucks leave this area every day all you need to do is find a truck that has a little space & that is headed in your direction & I am sure the price would be a lot better for you than with some trucker that is not ! Again, If you need a shipper I would get "Lots of Quotes" (I have always had Great Luck with USHIP.COM & plan on "the rates will vary widely" (IE) as a trucker that is already here in Los Angeles Area & is already planning on going your direction will be a lot different rate than someone that is not already here & is not going in your direction...Also, please remind the trucking Co. you are getting the quote from that ..."This bike is a relatively nimble + very simple dirt bike & ONLY weights about 195 Pounds" (It is NOT a "HUGE" 700 pound Harley etc) So the Shipping rate should be FAR Cheaper & Should definitely reflect that difference.Also, If it will get you a better Shipping Rate Also, I will deliver this bike to any Los Angeles Area Based Shippers Distribution yard for "FREE" & or if you live out of the Country I will deliver this Bike to any Los Angeles Based International Shipper yard in the Los Angles Area for FREE !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Just Last Month 11/20/15 This Beautiful Bike & Two Other of my Bikes were in the "WORLDS LARGEST MOTORCYCLE SHOW" ...The Los Angeles Area "Progressive Cycle Worlds MC Show" in the "VINTAGE JAPANESE Motorcycle Clubs Booth !!!!!! This year was our 3 of the 10 Bikes Were chosen to be in our Clubs Booth !! Over the past 4 years we have had We have had 14 Bikes in our VJMC Clubs Booth ! So Yes the bike you are Bidding on is the Bike Pictured Below in Our Clubs Booth !!!!!! This Fairly Rare Early 1970's TS 400cc Beauty Looks a bit like a earl;y 1970's SUZUKI 400 (Looks a little Like Roger DeCosters Race Bike with lights ) So I guess this is a Tribute Style bike. This bike was only used a couple of years and was not ridden hard at all (as her Near Perfect Engine cases & Rims fenders etc etc Show very well !!This wonderful Bike was Originally Sold here in Southern Calif Originally as a Dual Purpose" STREET BIKE the owner lived near the national Forest area & so he re-purosed the bike for more off road use & after a while sold his cabin & since that time this Wonderful Bike has sat in Dry Storage Since aprox.1979 according to the Original Owner till we started her Cosmetic Restoration that we are just now completing !!!!! I think This STUNNING , VERY SPIRITED & GOOD RUNNING Bike is a DREAM ! These TS 400 bikes are FAR MORE FORGIVING & Less Explosive to Ride as compared to a Dirt Racing only TM 400's & RM 400 as the TS 400 have a little more Torque & are Far More Controllable & FAR Easier to Start compared to the Typical 400cc Dirt Racers....* * PLEASE NOTE: this TS 400 (a TS is a lot like suzuki's Street Legal version of the TM or RM W/Lights SUZUKI Is I think this may be one of the latter more refined years of the FAR Simpler & FAR More RELIABLE & DURABLE Vintage RACE-ABLE Air Cooled TS 400 Two Stroke Engines & I believe this is also a Vintage Raceable DUAL SHOCK, REAR SWING ARM SUSPENSION SYSTEM" this makes this TS 400 a little like a TM 400 or RM 400 than earlier TS 400's & Best of all these are designed as a Street Legal ENDURO "DUAL SPORT" Use Etc etc & Not just Dirt Racing ...Please keep in mind She has all of her Charging Circuit+Lights are present..But, this bike was repurposed off road so will need all lights+gadges reconnected Again to Be 100% street legal again....I have sold several of these SUZUKI PE's and YAMAHA IT's to people that make them into a more Street " Bobber " (Cafe Racer) Bike .. (3 went to just Miami Florida ! this year alone !!!) Many People also use these for Vintage Dirt ENDURO RACING Bikes ... Again...She is a Fairly LOW HOUR Bike that was owned by an older gentleman & she sat in Covered Storage for the Majority of her Life..(Again, his was owned by an older Gentleman who owned this for many years & this has always been a "Southern California Bike" as she has been here in CALIFORNIA to the best of my knowledge the Bulk of her Life !!! & Best of all She STARTS SUPER EASY & just as she sits She RUNS Overall VERY GOOD Again.. More Importantly she appears that she was used Very Little in Her lifetime (Look at Her Original 1974 Seat Which was Rebuilt from the frame Up & looks & Feels Great !!!!) TITLE ! ! ! ! !* * * * * IMPORTANT * * * * * "UP COMING * AUCTIONS ALERT" * * * IMPORTANT ....PLEASE NOTE:>>.....

Everyone I have talked to as (Well as N.A.D.A.

This Vintage Racing 1974 SUZUKI TS 400 has her Original SUZUKI Tuned Exhaust with a New . & She Looks to have Her Original Factory SUZUKI TS 400 seat REBUILT From The FRAM UP !!!. We also Cleaned the Entire Fuel system & added a Quality Inline Fuel Filter & her Original Owner added a Brand New "UNI" High Performance Tube Style Air Cleaner Element, & "We Installed The VERY BEST "MODAL" Trans Mission Oil". The Front and rear suspension visually looked good & it's Suspension seals did not appear to be leaking at this time so other than to clean them & refinished the lower Alloy fork legs etc etc (IE) as far as fluid levels etc. they are just as we received them and we have not tested the suspension as we are just now getting the Bike Running again & completing the cosmetic restoration on this Beautiful Bike, Over and Beyond this...In Her Cosmetic Restoration process..We removed most Every Main Component on the bike...nearly all the way down to her "Bare Frame" + Cleaned & refinished most every main component then hand reassembled ~every main item back onto her frame again "Piece by Piece"..

We also cleaned, painted & refinished the; Frame, Hubs, Spokes, Exhaust Pipe (Tuned Exhaust system) & Her Original SUZUKI Exhaust System. She has Headlight & Taillight etc & we repainted her Nice Front fender & her rear fender etc.& we painted everything to match to a look very close to what I think a street able Tribute to ROGER DeCOSTERs Early 1970's MX race bike looked like a lot like a TM 400's & RM's would have looked NEW like back in the day ! . We installed Brand New High Quality Vintage style rubber handlebar Hand Grips. Her Transmission Gears Shift GREAT Her Clutch Releases & Grips GREAT !!! She is just coming out of Dry Storage Important thing is the Clutch does Grip GREAT & the more she runs the better it should work.

If you live inside California & If you race Vintage Bike Meets on Private Moto-Cross Tracks or (Vintage Bike Shows etc) the Notarized Calif. DMV "Bill of Sale" is all you will need. If for some reason ..Her calif Green sticker I think may have just rolled off..you want to go cow trail ridding on California etc Government National Forest Land etc land & feel you a may want a National Forest etc DMV "Green Sticker" My Vehicle Registration Office said that because this bike had been in covered storage for many years the bike I believe is currently on No Op Status by the Original Owner as he had stored the bike for years.. therefore if you live here in California & feel for some reason you want or feel you need a California Forestry Land Green sticker (to ride in Government Forest etc land) Again it will be Easy because the original owner stated he placed this on Non Op this bike is currently on Non Op DMV Computer status & therefore there should be NO back fees etc..) and Again, this California National Forest sticker is not required for MX & Other Race Tracks and also NOT required for Vintage Shows etc etc etc here in California & a California Nat.

In the past I have had a lot of emails with shipping quotes all over the map...Therefore, When you try and Get a Shipping Quote... I would try & get several (many) shipping quotes (& get a estimated pick up date in writing) before you commit or finalize a deal & or make a deposit) with a shipper... as one of the last bikes I sold out of our collection went to North Carolina via USHIP.COM, (which is about 3,000 miles from here)...it was a 1975 YAMAHA 400 Enduro which weights nearly about double of what this auctions Magnificent 1974 400 Suzuki Vintage Racing Beauty Weights & he was only charged about 330 US dollars a few months ago...I think ebay may have a shipping site, but if you want a very competitive rate I would go thru Uship.com & get "Lots of Bids"...Keep in mind, I live Very Close to the Business Hub of Los Angeles & Also the L.A. Harbor areas & Millions of Trucks leave this area every day all you need to do is find a truck that has a little space & that is headed in your direction & I am sure the price would be a lot better for you than with some trucker that is not ! Again, If you need a shipper I would get "Lots of Quotes" (I have always had Great Luck with USHIP.COM & plan on "the rates will vary widely" (IE) as a trucker that is already here in Los Angeles Area & is already planning on going your direction will be a lot different rate than someone that is not already here & is not going in your direction...Also, please remind the trucking Co. you are getting the quote from that ..."This bike is a small nimble + very simple dirt bike & ONLY weights about 270 Pounds" (It is NOT a "HUGE" 700 pound Harley etc) So the Shipping rate should be FAR Cheaper & Should definitely reflect that difference.Also, If it will get you a better Shipping Rate Also, I will deliver this bike to any Los Angeles Area Based Shippers Distribution yard for "FREE" & or if you live out of the Country I will deliver this Bike to any Los Angeles Based International Shipper yard in the Los Angles Area for FREE !!!!!!!!!!!!!! "PLEASE NOTE": RESERVE IS JUST A VERY FEW OF DOLLARS BELOW THE BUY IT NOW PRICE (WHICH I HAVE ALREADY LOWERED Aprox $500.00 ) For a Quick "No Brainer" Sale......So If YOU WANT THIS BIKE "THE BUY IT NOW" Price is about what it will take to get Her...If You wait till the auctions end you may get into a Bidding war ...& It could end up Way Past that amount ....& This is "The Very Last Year" of these 1983 PE 400 & RM Suzuki VINTAGE RACE-able BIKES That is one of the very Last Years of the SUPER DEPENDABLE & FAR MORE DURABLE "Air Cooled TS 400's & I believe the First year with (which probably cost SUZUKI FAR More than a junk Steel Swing Arm & as you can see these Vintage Race-able "DUAL SHOCK" Rear Suspension are FAR SUPERIOR as compared to earlier Suspensions etc !
