Keep in Mind the cost of ownership and Cost of Maintenance for a Vintage Two Stroke is a Very Small Fraction of what a four stroke would cost to own...These bikes are SUPER SIMPLE and nearly all of it's Normal maintenance can be done without any of the four strokes typical Specialized tools and the level Skill required is also FAR less...I have a HUGE Collection of Vintage Bikes and ALL are Air Cooled, Two Strokes...For Just that same Reason...Also, Parts are Very Available for these YAMAHA ENDUROs on ebay and Many other sites & Even the Dealers still sell Many of the the parts for these MAGNIFICENT CT-1 ENDURO's ! ! ! ! This bike has ALWAYS BEEN A SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA Bike !!! Which to collectors Makes Her FAR MORE Desirable & Collectable (as we up till this year typically get almost no rain here at all, (typically Only about 2 to 3 inches a year) ...& in our particular area Most of the time not even that much) & the Temperatures are most of the time a Museum like 65 - 75 the Majority of the year. ......Again,These CT-1 ENDURO's are famous for: Always being a High Quality, Super Simple To Maintain, Durable , RELIABLE + EASY TO RIDE , FUN, Go Most Any Where Bike ...for families Around the World !!! * * Lucky You.. can be the First New Owner Since this Bike has Just had a Beautiful Cosmetic Restoration ... 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 dissembled this wonderful Bike "Piece by Piece" & also Refinished most All of Her Main Components and reassembled her "by hand" ..."Piece by Piece". She has BOTH Front and Rear almost "BRAND NEW" Dual Purpose Universal Style Tires ! Again, This Magnificent Beauty Starts Great + Runs Amazing & Shifts 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 after several years re-purposed her for more off-road use but, as you can see I re-installed all of her head lights etc again and I have a "BRAND NEW" (Still in her box) Electrical Battery for her as well ! It looks like her lights are all present & look to be in good Shape. But, We have Just rebuilt much of her Engine and have not spent time with the lights as She has to have the engine started to check out the lights with the Battery out (Brand New in a Box) therefore I have not spent any time to figure out if the lights are working or not etc. * * Please Note * * Very Recently (December 2015) 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 the top two pictures & Also in the lower 4 Pictures are "NOT" of this auctions bike but are of this bikes 2 cousins (IE) (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 !!! PAPER WORK: Here is some More GREAT NEWS ! Since this Beauty has been in storage for many (~30 years) years (Last License tags were purchased in 1984) I have the DMV Computer Print Out on This Wonderful Bike that Proves... "She is 100% Free & 100% Clear of ANY and ALL back fees, 100% Free & 100% Clear of any and all back license registration fees & 100% Free & Clear of any and all back penalties & 100% Free & Clear on any and all back License fees etc etc" as she has been in storage so long (~30 years) that again therefore she currently is 100% off the DMV system at this time. I will Gladly Include this DMV Computer Print out that documents all 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 "Transfer of Ownership"" 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 ~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 will be NO back fees and NO back taxes etc etc. etc. owed on this Wonderful Dual Purpose 175cc YAMAHA ENDURO Dual Purpose bike & or Vintage Racing Bike. Again, I will be glad to provide a "California Department of Motor Vehicles" NOTARIZED "Transfer of Ownership" Bill of Sale from myself to the New Owner of this Wonderful Bike to the new owner. & also included will be the DMV's Computer system Print-Out that Proves this wonderful Bike is "FREE & CLEAR of Any and ALL" back fee's penalties etc etc etc.So YES ! She is FREE & CLEAR.. 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 "Transfer of Ownership" is all you will need. Keep in mind if you would like to VINTAGE Moto-Cross Race Bike for use on Private Moto-Cross Race Courses etc etc) so normal DMV paperwork is a "moot point" (it is un necessary). To my eye ...I think She looks Great ! ...I have always been very Proud of this Particularly Beautiful YAMAHA 175 cc CT-1 ENDURO Vintage Bike ...& Even in 2017 She LOOKS GREAT & She still Starts Quick & Runs & Shifts & Stops ...GREAT ! ..as these YAMAHA 175 CT-1 ENDURO's are Super Easy Starting + Dependable & Very Reliable & DURABLE Bikes That unlike many other Vintage Bikes These Original Series YAMAHA ENDURO's Are a True "JOY to OWN" ! ..& Vintage Racing Enthusiasts & Everyone I have ever meet seem to be in Total agreement that .... "These YAMAHA 175cc CT-1 Bikes are GREAT & also many people use these for Vintage Racing ! & Quite Possibly These are without Question one of the Very Most FUN , DURABLE, RELIABLE & All Purpose Use-able Bikes I have ridden in the past FIVE decades Since the late 1950's !" ((...& in the late 1960's & 1970's I was a contributing "Technical Editor" for "CYCLE NEWS" Magazine (at that time it was the Largest Motorcycle Publication on EARTH ! ! !)) & I wrote "FOURTEEN" Four to Five Page Featured Technical Articals for "CYCLE NEWS" Magazine & I was also a Four+ Year Sponsored *750 Open Class* Mainly "TT" & some "Half Mile" Sponsored Racer for "BULTACO" Motorcycles (Most of the time on a 360 cc "El Bandito" Two Stroke !!!! ) in 1968 to 1974 So ...No One Loves a TRULY Great "Two Stroke" Dirt Bike like this YAMAHA 250 DT-1 ENDURO ...more than Me ! ....and again ........If you Pass Up this Wonderful Bike where will you ever find a YAMAHA 250 ENDURO with a fairly Low Hour Engine and also so little use & abuse on Her ! ????? ?????? These CT-1 YAMAHA ENDURO's were destined to be a Bike that I think most any rider could Have "BIG FUN" ridding all day long On ! ! ! ! Most everyone I have talked with agrees these First Edition 175cc YAMAHA CT-1s Like ALL YAMAHA ENDURO's have hands down Always been considered "The Worlds Most Popular as well as one of the Worlds BEST Production Dual Purpose ENDURO bikes ..& YAMAHA has Long Been known for their GREAT RELIABILITY + FUN EASY of Maintenance & also HANDLING, DURABILITY, SOLID "BULLET PROOF" Construction, AMAZING Performance , Durability + Trouble Free, Reliability. The Compared to many bikes with the Power & Displacement of this Wonderful Bike these YAMAHA 175cc CT-1 ENDURO's are considered by Experts to be one of the Easiest to own & Maintain + to get parts for & Best Constructed and Truly VINTAGE CLASSIC ENDURO bikes "EVER MADE" & I also think one of the Most Most Rider Friendly & "FUN" Bikes Made in this Era or any Era !!! & this beautifully Cosmetically Restored it YAMAHA 175cc CT-1 is BY FAR one of the Most Evolved & SUPER USE-ABLE Early Successful "HIGH QUALITY JAPANESE CLASSIC ENDURO Bikes ("in 1968-9 when these YAMAHA ENDURO's where first Issued..This Super Practical & FUN Bike was "ROCKET SCIENCE" that "Really Worked GREAT " ! ! ! ), Very Simple less hassle FAR More Reliable More Trouble Free + More Durable "Air Cooled Two Stroke Engine" (FAR Better & Far Lighter & Far less problems than the early Four Stroke dual sport bikes & FAR Better than the early water cooled YAMAHAs Etc ..I have heard) (this being one of the last years of these First ISSUE 1969-71 DT-1 ENDURO's she is the Perfect Bike Further Perfected being by YAMAHA (These SUPER SIMPLE Air Cooled Super FUN " Air Cooled TWO STROKEs" Unlike most other Vintage Bikes Are Typically always ready to have Fun With !!! ) . This AMAZING Bike Starts Easy & RUNS Shift & Stops GREAT ! .. and I think she has what looks to be her her Original YAMAHA 175cc CT-1 Gas tank that still looks to in GREAT Condition with a Brand New "CANDY APPLE GREEN" paint & YAMAHA style reissue style Tank EMBLEMS & Striping etc etc. ! Again, Her Gas Tank has been Newly refinished & Painted as are Both her Front & Rear Fenders, also her rims, spokes, shocks, Wheel hubs & Backing plates etc etc have all also been refinished & or Painted and I think look very Nice. She has Two Dual Sport Quality Front and almost New Back Tires !!!... YES ! the gas tank Graphics have been replaced with what looks to be ORIGINAL New Old Stock or Incredibly Nice Graphics that look GREAT to me to the & Look very Much like the YAMAHA Graphics that YAMAHA installed back when this bike was Brand New ! The inside of her tank is Clean looks GREAT.as do Her Handlebars, Pegs, Shifter, She has Brand Newly painted & refinished Fork Tubes etc etc & her Rubber Boots look good & New Handlebar Grips ! Also, brake levers etc etc are still in overall Nice Condition ! The Shifter and Brake levers look & Work Great ! Her Frame VIN serial number is :* * * * This Beauty has been in Covered storage for Many Years (( She was in Covered storage for the past THREE DECADES)) & She has a Very NEW since her Engine work was preformed (Her Gaskets, Factory YAMAHA Piston and Factory Piston Rings+ Factory YAMAHA Crank Shaft Seals etc etc etc were replaced Jan 2017)...& as you can see her Chassis has just had a BRAND NEW Very Nice Cosmetic Restoration (As detailed above) & is just returning to service again & She Starts Well & is "Running Great" I personally think the more you run her the Better she will run ! Make No Mistake this Baby... Runs, Shifts & Rides & Stops GREAT ! * * * Again.... Think About it , if You pass this Baby Up .....where else will you ever find a YAMAHA 175cc CT-1 ENDURO Looking anywhere near this Nice with so little use & Abuse on her ! ! ! ??????????????????????? This Wonderful Bike has Very Low Hours on Her Chassis and Her Engine has Just this Month (JANUARY 2017) Been Gone thru and I can Tell you compared to several of these YAMAHA CT-1 175cc ENDURO's I have ever owned in prior decades ...this Beautiful Bike Starts Easier and Runs FAR Better than most any other YAMAHA 250 ENDURO I have Owned !!!! This was Owned by an older gentleman & his family for many years that figured out about several years ago that he was just a little too old for a Ride as Spirited as this AMAZING Beauty !!! She was always in a Nice Dry Storage in a Nice Dry Garage for Decades. Once we flushed the tank & Carburetor + put in fresh gas & She started right up, Super Quickly ! ! ! ! ! ! !)

Thank You, Good Luck and Happy Bidding ! Hi, Everyone...I Have had a lot of emails this morning asking me about Shipping Quotes...To get a Good & or Very Fair Deal on Shipping ..I would get as many Quotes as possible...Otherwise, you will pay Way Too Much...I would try Uship.com where shippers Competitively bid to get your Shipping business. To do this properly, Get as Many Competitive Rates as you can (so you will know when a fair rate presents it'self).......& also to protect yourself. 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 about 100 pounds 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. Please email us. be sure to tell Each Shipper that this is a fairly "LIGHT" weight bike (I believe, a bit over 200 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 / Lakewood Country Club Area , California Zip = 90808

She has BOTH Front and Rear "BRAND NEW" Trials Universal Style re-issue Tires !Again, This Magnificent Beauty Starts Great + Runs Amazing & Shifts 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 after several years re-purposed her for more off-road use but, as you can see I re-installed all of her head lights etc again and I have a "BRAND NEW" (Still in her box) Electrical Battery for her as well ! It looks like her lights are all present & look to be in good Shape. But, I have not spent any time to figure out if the lights are working etc. * * Please Note * * Very Recently (December 2015) 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 4 Pictures are "NOT" of this auctions bike but are of this bikes 2 cousins (IE) (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 !!! PAPER WORK: Here is some More GREAT NEWS ! Since this Beauty has been in storage for many (~30 years) years 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 license registration fees & 100% Free & Clear of any and all back penalties & 100% Free & Clear on any and all back license fees etc etc as she has been in storage so long (20-30 years) that she currently 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 "Transfer of Ownership"" 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. TWO to 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 will be NO back fees and NO back taxes etc etc. etc. owed on this Wonderful Dual Purpose 175cc YAMAHA ENDURO Dual Purpose bike & or Vintage Racing Bike. Again, I will be glad to provide a "California Department of Motor Vehicles" NOTARIZED "Transfer of Ownership" Bill of Sale from myself to the New Owner of this Wonderful Bike to the new owner. 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 "Transfer of Ownership" is all you will need. Keep in mind if you would like to VINTAGE Moto-Cross Race Bike for use on Private Moto-Cross Race Courses etc etc) so normal DMV paperwork is a "moot point" (it is un necessary). To my eye ...I think She looks Great ! ...I have always been very Proud of this Particularly Beautiful YAMAHA 175 cc CT-1 ENDURO Vintage Bike ...& Even in 2017 She LOOKS GREAT & She still Starts Quick & Runs & Shifts & Stops ...GREAT ! ..as these YAMAHA 175 CT-1 ENDURO's are Super Easy Starting + Dependable & Very Reliable & DURABLE Bikes That unlike many other Vintage Bikes Are a True "JOY to Own" ! ..& Vintage Racing Enthusiasts & Everyone I have ever meet seem to be in Total agreement that ....

Hi, Everyone...I Have had a lot of emails this morning asking me about Shipping Quotes...To get a Good & or Very Fair Deal on Shipping ..I would get as many Quotes as possible...Otherwise, you will pay Way Too Much...I would try Uship.com where shippers Competitively bid to get your Shipping business. To do this properly, Get as Many Competitive Rates as you can (so you will know when a fair rate presents it'self).......& also to protect yourself. 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 about 100 pounds 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. Please email us. be sure to tell Each Shipper that this is a fairly "LIGHT" weight bike (I believe, a bit over 200 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 / Lakewood Country Club Area , California Zip = 90808

The Compared to many bikes with the Power & Displacement of this Wonderful Bike these 250s are probably one of the Easiest & Best Suspension-ed and Predictable Truly VINTAGE Race-able bikes to Ride & I also think one of the Most Most Rider Friendly & Competitive Dirt Racing Bikes Made in this Era !!! & this YAMAHA 250 is BY FAR one of the Most Evolved Early + Successful "FULL SIZE" Dirt Racing Bikes as it has all of the Most sought after Goodies (Self Tuning Reed Valve Inductions System, & also POWER CHAMBER Induction For the First time "BULLET PROOF" Super Strong + Great Handling "Big Travel" AIR Forks & "HUGE " Travel Travel Rear Factory YAMAHA MONO-SHOCK Heat Treated Aluminum "Super Strong" ALLOY Rear Swing arm Suspension ("in 1978 for a Dirt Racing Bike All of this was "ROCKET SCIENCE" that "Really Worked GREAT " ! ! ! ), Very Simple less hassle far more Reliable More Trouble Free Air Cooled (FAR Better than the early water cooled YAMAHAs Etc ..I have heard) (this being one of the last years of these Very Perfected by 1979 YAMAHA 250cc YZ (These SUPER SIMPLE Air Cooled Super Competitive TWO STROKE" ) engines, Factory YAMAHA (Tuned MX Racing Chamber) ((Tuned Exhaust Pipe)) & High Performance Silencer , Factory YAMAHA "RADIAL" Big Cooling HEAD & All of this & Being SOOooo Perfected...YZ YAMAHA 250s even with her HUGE TRAVEL SUSPENSION She will even EASILY fit in right into my Chevy ASTRO "Mini Van" even with the vans center seat still in place !!!!
