Additional photos of this 1991 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.
The seller of this example (VIN: JYA2RRA07MA056417) acquired it less than a year ago from a collector.
He has not ridden it at all as he has “others to ride and play with.” The odometer shows 1,968 miles.
What makes this example truly stand out is that it’s impressively equipped with several NOS pieces: (the seller notes that each NOS fairing is ~$1,000 on today’s market, with a NOS tank bringing roughly $1,300).
– upper fairing
– lower fairing
– master cylinder
– tail light
The seller states that it is 100% stock and there are no mechanical issues. It was “just fully serviced and runs perfectly,” work included an oil change, brake fluid flush, new spark plug, and a carb rebuild.
The sole significant cosmetic blemish is a series of cracks on the windshield.
