The yamaha yds7

Is it just me or do you think Yamaha got everything right with the styling of this model, right down to the colours they got the styling just right with this bike. And for me it has to be about the best looking street 2 stroke produced.

Yes I believe it is a great style, too bad they don't make bikes like they did in the 60's and 70's anymore, with of course some updating of electrics and fuel injection. Plastic sport bikes of today just make me plus they have no style. Just cookie cutter models year after year since the late 80's.

Is that your bike?....Looks like it is another great survivor!

No not my bike i dont have any classic japs at the moment. just got the pic off a google search, and i never had a yds7 250 back in the day but had the 350 yamaha r5f same style but in an orangey colour same black infills as the YDS7 but no way as nice a gold colour.
i just liked the styling i always did the early RDs that followed these were this bikes fat younger sibling
