VINTAGE1975 YAMAHA TY175B TRIALS - $2400 (SE Tallahassee)



HISTORIC, HIGHLY SOUGHT AFTER VINTAGE 1975 YAMAHA TY175B TRIALS TWIN SHOCK

ASKING $2,400.00

OBSERVED MOTORCYCLE TRIALS

If you love national and/or international MC, SC, TRIALS, GNCC, etc., you probably know that VINTAGE is "HOT," growing rapidly across the US and world. There are national (AHMRA for example), state championships, and regional clubs hold their own competitions. In FL we have the Florida Trials Association. In Australia, they have a "Yamaha TY-Only" trials competition!

Observed Motorcycle Trials started in Scotland before 1910. It is one of the very oldest forms of motorcycle competition.

Motorcycle trials is often utilized by competitors of other motorcycle sports (such as motocross or street racers) as a way to cross-train, as trials teaches great throttle, balance, and machine control. You see Trials bike demonstrations at many competitions such as SC, MX, ENDURO X, EXTREME, X-GAMES, and part of the NUCLEAR COWBOYZ shows.

There are only a handful of riders worldwide that can compete at the international level. NO US rider competing in any of the championship series (other than Trials) could qualify/compete at the international level!

YAMAHA TY175B

Owned for 24 months. Bought with the intention of competing in the national senior vintage trials series, but life changed and could not. This TY has never left my home (ridden in the woods behind) other than for service. Over that time, it has been ridden for about 36 hours. It has never been ridden for more than 60 minutes at any one time. 90+% RESTORED.

SPECIFICS

1. 175cc displacement
2. Purchased from FL vintage shop
3. All servicing done by 2 stroke vintage technician
4. Ridden about 36 hours (maintain iPad iOS computer log)
5. Great looking, 90+% restored. Cases polished, cooling fins properly painted, and no corrosion unlike most I've seen on the market. In better condition than many new-generation, late model trials and other dirt bikes.
6. $3,000 invested
7. Fuel tank cleaned and sealed
8. Motor checked:
a. New low end bearings
b. Complete new set of OEM gaskets and seals
c. Carb checked and cleaned
d. New top end (about 3 hours on it)
e. New points and condenser
f. Other adjustments as necessary
9. New petcock
10. New, original style quilted seat (hard to find)
11. IRC trial tires in near-new condition
12. New, OEM kick start assembly
13. New, beautiful custom Sammy Miller pegs (repositioned providing better balance, control)
14. Spare air filter
15. Original frame-mounted tool kit
16. Copy of original Yamaha factory service manual
17. Copy of original Mikuni carb service manual
18. Original Haynes TY manual
19. Bonus. I designed a custom operating log database. Provided if you have an iPad and Bento 4. Populates riding location by GPS and inserts map and address, calculates riding time, tracks ambient outdoor temperature, notes, etc.

OTHER

1. Do not have the lighting kit
2. The tank is dented either side at the knees
3. The front fender can be touched-up or repainted
4. I would not purchase a used bike from an owner who opened the cases and worked on the internals.
5. Most owners cannot provide you with accurate operating time, particularly important for a 2 stroke.
6. I will provide you with the technician's contact information.
7. Trials bikes are often used for cross-training by professional competitive dirt bike riders.

CUSTOMIZING

Compared with other vintage bikes, replacement OEM and aftermarket parts are readily available. There are many performance parts for the TY series including electronic ignition, tank/seat combo (similar to the vintage Cota's), pegs, shocks/suspension, exhaust systems, etc. Pick up a set of vintage UK trial's togs and you'll really look dapper for the Scottish Six Day Trials!

Not a 175 but this has been available for about ten days and the seller just dropped his asking price 100 bucks.

1979 Bultaco Sherpa 350T - $1250 (St. Petersburg)




This Bultaco competition trials bike came to me as part of a trade last year. It appears to be a model 199A, which was manufactured from 1979-81. The previous owner told me it was a '79, but being that it was sold in Florida as a competition bike (prior to1984) there is no title, only a bill of sale. The former owner had used it in professional competition during the early 1980's. The bike runs and appears to be 100% complete with the exception of the seat cover. Someone recovered the original pad with blue vinyl.

I have started the bike several times, but it's obvious it needs the points cleaned and the carb rebuilt. It starts flooding as soon as the gas is turned on. It also has a flat rear tire and the plastic rear fender is cracked. The fender and carb kit are readily available on the internet. I did start it up and run it though the gears once, Everything seemed to work normally and the engine seemed strong. After that I put it away for restoration. Unfortunately, I need to downsize a bit or I'd keep it. It's a great candidate for restoration or for use on the vintage trials circuit.

I'm not desperate for money, so please don't offer me $500 for the bike. I know what it's worth, I've been dealing in vintage motorcycles for the past 30 years. I might be interested in trades though. Always looking for unique or unusual motorcycles. I also am looking for a Honda mini-trail or the like for my 10-year-old.

Call or text Rick at 727-432-three thousand (3000). Or you can email me though the craigslist contact.



Looks cool, don't know about the price though?
