Additional photos of this 1986 Yamaha YSR50 Tech 21 are available here for your perusal.

The Yamaha YSR50 was the most common of the rare 50cc sportbikes that came from Japan in the late 80s and early 90s. An instant classic, the YSR50 was always street legal and always seems to put a smile on the face of riders and spectators.

Built to look like a mini RZ500, the YSR50 also featured mini performance. The 49.3cc two-stroke engine was capable of pushing the bike up to 38 miles per hour, but companies like Team Calamari have been making stock performance numbers useless with years of aftermarket parts and performance modifications if you are so inclined.

This example is VIN: 2AL049759

The odometer shows 6,880 kilometers (4,275 miles).

This bike came to us from a collection in Japan. In preparation for the listing, the seller had us install a new battery, clean/sync the carb, install a new spark plug, repair and line the gas tank, and replace the petcock. Steve did the work, and he notes the following on his condition report: the front and rear Dunlop K825 tires are at 80% and 60%, respectively. They are both cracked.

The front and rear brakes are at 95% and 40%, respectively. The hydraulic fluid, oil injection, and transmission oil are OK. Finally, the headlight, turn signals, brake light, taillight, and plate light are all functioning, though the horn only works intermittently.

“16 valve” decal on the front fairing.
