It's a yamaha mini enduro. Can't say the exact year maybe a 1972-73 JT2. For a few years they had lights on them.

Looks to be a '72 Yamaha JT 2 Mini Enduro. It can't be a '73 because thats the year Yamaha started making the GT 80 MX / Enduro models and it can't be late 60's because they did'nt start making the JT models until 1971. The '71 model was the JT 1, sold without lights, lights being optional, and the '71's were red with white stripes on the tank and fenders (my brother-in-law still has his). The '72 models were were the JT 2 M/X, sold with out lights, it was yellow with black stripes and the JT2 Mini Enduro it was painted metalic orange with yellow stripes. My folks bought my Mini Enduro new on Memorial Day 1972.

After 40 years other than needing tires and fork seals its still ready to go.

These are the ones I own. JT1-2 models have screw-on badges on the tanks.
