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 .

Please do us both a Big Favor and Please do not bid on this item unless you are able to 100% Fund this at this time, unless prior arrangements have been made & Cleared by me (Prior to bidding on this item). 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 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

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" ?

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 .

Thank You, Good Luck and Happy Bidding ! KKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKK 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 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

That it's Original "OLDER" Owner Obviously LOVED , Cared For & Respected (& it doesn't appear that it was ridden too hard ...if much at all) over the Years. Again, this Wonderful YAMAHA YZ 250 VINTAGE RACING Motorcycle ! has been ridden fairly seldom & (the 1st YZ I ever owned... I sold to one of the Immortal Racers that was seen in the Original "On Any Sunday Movie")...This auctions Beautiful Bike Starts FAR Easier and Runs FAR Better than most any YZ ...I have Owned !!!! Again, This Wonderful Bike was owned by an Older Gentleman that just got too old to ride something as "Highly Spirited" as this AMAZING BEAST !!! Therefore, ..She has been in dry storage in a Nice Dry Garage for the last couple of Decades (approx. TWENTY +Years !!!). Once we flushed the tank & Carburetor + put in fresh gas & She started right up, Super Quickly & YES! She Does Run GREAT & She EVEN Idles down Very Smoothly & Nicely ! ! ! ! ! ! !)

These are Super QUICK + Comfortable Great Handling & Compared to many bike I think fairly Easy to Ride bikes (thanks to her YAMAHA "AIR MONO SHOCK" & "AIR FORK" Suspension) with Her Great Horse Power power Band & HUGE Suspension & I think ...Very Forgiving for a TRUE VINTAGE RACE Bike & Without Question Vintage Enthusiasts seem to Agree ...These 1978 YZ YAMAHA 250's are SUPER FAST, with INCREDIBLE Suspension & TURNING Ability ,EXCELLENT BALANCE, GREAT HANDLING & Very Durable + RELIABLE & SUPER FUN ! FUN ! FUN ! to RIDE ! ! ! ... Over the years I have had many emails from YAMAHA Racers in the late 70's thru the early 1980s that Stated they were LOCAL, STATE, & NATIONAL Moto Cross Champions with YAMAHAs that were Nearly STOCK (Almost Un-Altered) Factory YZ MX BIKES ! ! ! ....CYCLE Magazine at that time called these YAMAHA dirt Bikes a "TEN Out of TEN" Moto-Cross Weapon !!!!!!!!please see attached picture (above) This is a Bike that most everyone seems to think feels Very Natural to them & for her time She Has "HUGE" Suspension Travel ! These are very DURABLE & RELIABLE Bikes."...with a Mountain of HP & Torque" ! Therefore...For a Full size Bike I feel She is Super light AMAZINGLY Agile & Great for Newer Riders that want to move up to the Next Level...(way more do-able & Controllable + Better Balanced than Most Vintage Racers & also most newer bikes are these days !!!!!!!!) AGAIN, One of the reasons YAMAHA's Outsold nearly Every other MX Race Bike on the Planet was...YAMAHA besides having about the Most Advanced Dirt RACING Suspension on the Planet at that time ...They have always been famous for their AMAZING Durability and Reliability & Ease of Maintenance !!!! & for many Decades YAMAHA's are Said to be one of the VERY BEST Handling Production Moto Cross bikes Built in this Era !!! "GREAT FOR ALL OF YOU VINTAGE RACERS" ! XXXXXXXXXXXXXXX This 1978 is one of the FIRST Years that the YZ 250 had the MUCH IMPROVED Heat Treated (Stronger & Lighter) "ALUMINUM" Mono Shock Swing Arm ! ! ! ! (Which MUCH INCREASES Her VALUE over the LESS Competitive & Much Heavier Iron/steel swing arms of the earlier YZ 250 YAMAHA's).. Also, The 1978 Was Famous for Having "MUCH More USEABLE POWER BAND & a FAR BETTER SPREAD OF POWER THROUGHOUT HER HP BAND !!!! an not nearly as pipe-y as the harder to control 1975-77 & earlier YZ's Were ! ! Most People agree these YAMAHA YZ 250's are Possibly one of the More Powerful & also Among The BEST VINTAGE RACING Bikes You CAN BUY !!! MORE FUN , MORE RELIABLE Better Balanced AMAZING Suspension & HANDLING & BETTER BUILT & "Hands Down" one of the MOST "Trouble Free" & DURABLE easy to maintain...High Performance VINTAGE Dirt Racing bikes ever made ! & (You can still get many Brand New & Brand New Reissue Parts for these Wonderful Bikes !!! Most Importantly ...Especially Compared to any other YAMAHA YZ 250s I have ever owned ...This Baby Starts EASY (I even think my Very "Non Biker" wife could kick start this bike !!) & Yes The Baby Runs GREAT !... I think as Good as She looks ...if that is Possible !! ) & Again, Without Question Compared to any other 250 I have Owned ..She Typically Starts Very Easy & RUNS GREAT !!!!!! There are a lot of UTube etc web sites showing people having a Great time ridding these Amazing YAMAHA YZ 250's Vintage Dirt Racing Bikes !!! The YAMAHA Dealers & a Zillion of other Sources still carry a TON parts for these & also ebay has TONS of Parts as well and there are plenty of Great websites and People that carry a TON of parts for these Wonderful YAMAHA 250 cc Dirt/ Race bikes should you ever need anything! ...& I feel the parts are overall of GREAT Quality and are AMAZINGLY VERY Fairly Priced !!! It's Front & Rear Fenders look Great and her had a little custom fabrication adding on Brand New oval Side number Panels ..& I feel overall her Body work are in Good overall Shape and like her beautiful YAMAHA Fuel Tank have been beautifully refinished with Nice New Correct Vintage YZ Graphics and as you can see I think all Look Great ! Her Gas Tank etc has been Nicely refinished with New Original style YZ YAMAHA style Graphics !!!! My Mechanic and I flushed out the Fuel Tank, Carburetor & Fuel lines & the entire Fuel System & added a Brand New in line Gas Filter & in her Original YAMAHA Air Box looks to be a BRAND NEW Upgrade style Air Cleaner....( & when we put new gas in her ...She Started Right Back UP ...WOW ! ! ! ) ...So this baby is Ready to Go have some Fun with !

((How many Nearly FORTY YEAR OLD Racing dirt Bikes have you seen these days with there ORIGINAL Seat 1979 Cover !!! which other than one repair along the bottom edge on one side is still in what I would call AMAZINGLY Good Shape especially for being a dirt racing bike ....So obviously this bike had been Stored FAR More than She was Ridden !!! Most everyone that I have talked to over the years has told me that this was one of the Very Best & Most Popular "High Performance" MX Race Bikes bikes of it's day....& based on my experience with these YAMAHA 250's ... I would have to add Many Vintage Racing Enthusiasts feel these YAMAHA 250's maybe "One of the Most, Easy to Maintain, Trouble Free, Most Durable, & Among the FASTEST + Most Popular & Best Production "Full Size" ... VINTAGE RACING BIKES EVER MADE"in this ERA ! * * * If you are a Vintage RACING Rider you will appreciate the GREAT " POWER, SUSPENSION & HANDLING " that these YAMAHA 250s Have always been Famous for ...their AMAZING Ability to get thru rough ground in comfort !!!

Selling my 78 DT250. It's a great running bike. Starts first kick 98% of the time, warm or cold. The tires have maybe 100 miles on them, new rings, great compression, UNI air filter, new brake and clutch cables, new battery and fork seals, spark arrestor. It's in great mechanical condition and the suspension feels real good. The bike sits tall and it gives it a good feel, like easily controllable, confident feeling. The headlight has been updated to one with an easily replaceable bulb. Everything works at the moment. The gas tank had been lined in the recent past. I tried to show the worst of the paint flaws in the pictures, but there are some less noticeable ones here and there that are not to bad. Just an all around nice vintage rider with a clear title. Buyer is responsible for any shipping and full payment is required within 7 days after the end of auction. $250.00 non-refundable PayPal deposit is required within 48 hours after end of auction.

GARAGE KEPT WITH PRIDE OF OWNERSHIP. ONLY TWO OWNERS TO MY KNOWLEDGE. THE BIKE JUST EMERGED FROM ANOTHER MONTANA WINTER. I WILL DESCRIBE IT TO THE BEST OF MY ABILITY AS I HAVE SPENT AN AFTERNOON RIDING, TRYING OUT ALL THE SWITCHES, CONTROLS ETC, EXAMINING AND TAKING NOTES. ALTHOUGH I HAVE A SHORT LIST OF IMPERFECTIONS, MAKE NO MISTAKE.....THIS IS A VERY NICE OLD YAMAHA AND IS FOR SALE WHERE IS, AS IS WITH A CLEAR, NOTARIZED, UNASSIGNED MONTANA TITLE.

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).

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 ....

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

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
