Nice 1976 Montesa Cota 348 Vintage Trials motorcycle. Good cosmetic condition. starts and runs, but needs carb cleaned in order to hold a low speed idle. This bike has been in storage for 6 years, and I suspect that the idle jet is clogged. Sold with a Bill of Sale. Also includes an extra seat/tank unit. These are great, competitive mounts for Vintage Trials and AHRMA competitions. Local pickup is fine; also happy to have your shipper pick the bike up from my home. All shipping fees and arrangements to be handled by the purchaser. Thanks for looking! I'm having trouble changing the Title/category on this listing. The bike is a Montesa, not a Bultaco. Sorry for any confusion, I will keep trying to correct the miscategorization.

Up for sale is my TY250 trials bike. The bike is unrestored and unmolested, has been used but not abused. I purchased the bike from an older gentleman who had owned it for many years but had been storing it for about 20 years. All the bike needed was a carb clean and it fired up immediately. The bike starts first kick every time and has good compression. Engine is solid, no rattling, clean oil in when I found it, in immediate need of nothing. Headlight and taillight work as they should, high and low beam. I am unsure if the oiler works, it is there and there's oil in the tank, but the oiler has been disconnected. Inside of tank is rust free, when I bought the bike it had some surface rust in it so I flushed it out with dilute phosphoric acid to neutralize the rust. There is a significant knee dent on the right side of the tank, I think it's restorable but it would take some metal pulling by a professional. It also needs a new rear tab which has broken off (common). Fenders should be replaced for they are aged/cracked and the seat needs a re cover. Lighting on/off switch broken off in the on position. All pretty basic "old bike" details. All in all, this is simply put an all original (except tires and new tail light) survivor which was lightly used. I think this is a nice find for you could just jump right on and ride it as is, or it would be a prime bike for an easy restoration. I have just had it in my shop along side all my other bikes and decided I have no real need for it. I also have a second complete headlight that I will include if the offer price is nearly met. These are extremely rare and worth around $200 alone. Will also include the original tail light which is just the base, no lens. If you are interested in shipping, it's all on you. I will take the bike to Forward Air to be freighted but that's about as far as I will go shipping wise. The bike is for sale local also, so if the auction terminates early that is why. This bike has no title, trials bikes are not street legal and a snail would probably outrun you anyhow! Thank you for looking and have a nice day.

NO TITLE!!! I'm forced to choose a title status, but as we all know, most old dirt bikes were never issued titles. I bought this from the original owner...he never had a title for it! NO SHIPPING / CRATING!!! THE BIKE MUST BE PICKED UP HERE IN NEWVILLE, PA (CLOSE TO HARRISBURG) WITHIN 2 WEEKS. I PREFER TO BE PAID IN CASH...IF I DON'T HAVE TO GIVE MONEY TO PAYPAL, I'LL TAKE LESS FOR THE BIKE! My 14 year old son and I cleaned this bike up as a winter project (I've owned a successful bike repair shop for 15 years). My friend was teaching motorcycle repair at YTI, and one of his students was selling this bike (his father bought it new in 1973). The "numbers matching" bike still has all of it's original parts (except for the tires, front brake cable, chain and gas cap). It was in great shape when we started. We took it mostly apart, blasted, cleaned and painted what needed it while trying to retain originality...IT IS NOT A CONCOURS OR PROFESSIONAL RESTORATION...we are amateurs at best. The front brake cable is used from a GT80, and the gas cap is from Yamaha. We had to repair the hose nipple on the bottom of the oil tank (they're expensive)...we used basically a valve stem for a mag type wheel (very proud of the job...it came out well). The topend was off and looked very good, we cleaned it up and put it back together...it's not terribly rattly like most beat to death gt80's. The gas tank is clean inside. The forks are pitted and could probably use resealing (no oil coming out, but we've barely ridden it). We've both ridden it about 10 minutes each...it works great! If I really try, I can get the clutch to slip in high gear (I'm 165lbs...can you blame it?). WE REALLY LOVE THIS BIKE! I'm sure that we'll regret selling it, but like I tell my son "you can't keep them all". I try to remind him that money doesn't grow on trees, and we have to fund our racing habits somehow. Questions? Call 717-776-4743. Justin

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 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 & also Refinished most All of Her Main Components and reassembled her "by hand" piece by piece. 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 .... "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 (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-1YAMAHA ENDURO's were destined to be a Bike that I think most any rider could Have "BIG FUN" ridding all day long On !

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 ! ! ! ! ! ! !)

(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

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 .

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

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.

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 *...

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
