1970 Yamaha HT-1


Reserve Bike With Non-Refundable Deposit



Additional photos are available here for your perusal.

Back in the 1960s and 1970s, Yamaha produced a range of small displacement trail bikes meant to cater to the burgeoning off-road market. Though many motorcyclists are familiar with the DT series, there were several others, too, such as the AT, the LT, and the HT like the one you see before you.

Powered by an air-cooled two-stroke 90cc single, the HT-1 made approximately 8.4hp and 6.5lb-ft of torque. Thanks to the bike’s svelte 187-pound curb weight, those numbers proved more than enough to enable some fun in the dirt. The HT-1’s specs also made it an attractive option for beginners — whether those new to motorcycling or those simply inexperienced off the beaten path.

Elsewhere, the HT-1 boasted a full array of equipment that included lighting, a mirror, and a horn. Per Yamaha’s museum entry, it was supposedly sold with a line of motocross kit parts aimed at getting riders into the sport.

This example is VIN: HT1213693. The seller purchased the bike from the original owner in Colorado Springs one month ago.

During his ownership the seller has accumulated two miles; the odometer shows 1,772 miles.

Per the seller, the bike “starts, runs, and drives with no leaks.” He adds that he has had the fuel tank professionally cleaned and lined.

Per the seller, “Completely original and un-restored except for the petcock, battery & spark plug.”

Inside of the tank:

It is riding on Yokohama Trail Sport tires.

The sale includes one key, an HS1 manual, and a tool kit.

Cosmetic Blemishes: please see the album up top for all known cosmetic blemishes. Here is a selection:
“There is slight surface rust on the swingarm and inside fuel tank. A small ding on front fender, left side of tank, rear of tank, right side of headlight, tip broken from clutch lever.”

Currently located in Monument, Colorado, this Yamaha is offered on a clean Colorado title. Have any HS1 stories or questions about this listing? Let us know in the “Comments” tab!
