    Insuring a '68?

    Hmm if it helps I currently still live with my parents who have everything including my car insured with statefarm, I'll give them a call thanks! If not I'll try Dalton they look pretty good too.

    Insuring a '68?

    Hey all I've been slowly restoing a '68 Yamaha 2 stroke for the past while now, haven't paid attention to motorcycle insurance in a few years however, which companies would insure a bike that old? Not as daily driver, ideally it'd be on the road for 4-5 months in the summer so I wouldn't mind...

    WANTED 1968 Yamaha YDS5 Parts

    As the title says I'm looking for any parts for a 68 YDS5, I'll take a look at anything for spares, but the bike could do with a set of mint fenders, original handlebar controls or any airbox parts. If anyone has a luggage rack for one of these I'd be all over that as well. I'm located in...

    68 Yamaha YDS5-E

    Hey, sorry for the lack of updates, been busy with school and it's been a cold cold winter up here. I'm in Ontario, Canada, which is the reason for the insurance rates, if you're under 25 they're generally pretty bad, especially on older bikes where typically only niche insurance companies will...

    68 Yamaha YDS5-E

    Hey there, so just before this last summer on a local classifieds site a 1968 Yamaha YDS5 popped up, this was actually the same bike that I had been looking at the summer prior and was going to arrange a trip to go see it and potentially purchase it but some stuff came up and I didn't have the...

    Looking for a Sub 250cc motorcycle

    Welp, after trying all of the conventional methods (kijiji, cvmg, vrra, paris) I couldn't find what I'm looking for. Pretty much looking for any Sub 250cc bike, 2 stroke or 4, I have preference on the Hondas, CB 100/125/160/175 but I'll take a look at/consider almost anything, assuming it's not...

    1975 Yamaha RS 100 2 smoke

    Well, as you can see my kick shaft twisted and snapped, which is disappointing. No hard kicks or anything, was just tuning the carb, trying to get the idle right.. Got the bike running, ordered a new kick shaft and a new relay.. When those come in a total teardown will commence, sparks will...

    1975 Yamaha RS 100 2 smoke

    Re: Yamaha RS 100 Haha will do, the center stand is going as soon as I finish enough work on the bike to get it running, and will only be used periodically whenever I do work, unless I get a front/rear stand for it. The PO told me that the headlight will turn on when the engine turns on, says...

    1975 Yamaha RS 100 2 smoke

    Re: Yamaha RS 100 Dirty carb. Cleaned out externally/internally well enough to get it running fine, will go over externally again when I'm going to be repainting everything/removing the rest of the dirt off the bike, just need to get it running. Under the front fender. Going to bob...

    1975 Yamaha RS 100 2 smoke

    Re: Yamaha RS 100 Alright, well the headlight must be blown or disconnected somewhere, when I switch the high/low beams the indicator light on the speedo doesn't even turn on. Got the side fuel drained, air filter out, the screws holding the rest of the mount for the side cover are partially...

    1975 Yamaha RS 100 2 smoke

    Re: Yamaha RS 100 Got a few quick questions if anyone can help: 1. Should the headlight be coming on if the bike isn't running? 2. Turn signals light up but don't flash, aside from the flasher relay, is there any other cause for this? (Before I order a flasher relay) 3. The bike sits in...

    1975 Yamaha RS 100 2 smoke

    Finally.. I get to post a build thread :) Stock seat pan looks ok Don't plan on going too crazy with it, black Forks/Frame/Engine/Wheels, with Volvo Grey for the Tank/Seat (Probably a different tank and a Fiberglass seat). Clubmans upfront since clipons don't exactly fit on those forks...
