1965 Yamaha YM-1

It’s always great to find random gems on eBay, this beautiful old Yamaha YM-1 2-stroke is currently sitting at $3,300 with the reserve not met and about a day left on the bidding.

The bike looks to be in remarkably good order and recently had a full mechanical and cosmetic restoration by Vintage 2Strokes of SoCal. The seller claims it is capable of 100+mph and I believe him, those 300cc 2-stokes are one of the only things ever created by man that can travel faster than bad news.
