Additional photos of this Yamaha YSR50 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 YSR is one of several bikes from a collection sourced in South Africa (and currently available at our shop in Santa Monica, California). In preparation for the listing, we installed a battery, cleaned the carb, and had the tank professionally lined/cleaned.
Currently located at our facility in Santa Monica, California (please make an appointment for an inspection), this Yamaha is offered on a Bill of Sale only. Have any YSR50 stories or questions about this listing? Let us know in the comments!
