1974 Yamaha RD60


Is this the rarest bike I’ve ever posted? Possibly. I’d never heard of it before I found it on eBay last night.

If you are in the market for a small bore cafe racer project, this might be just the thing. 50cc’s putting out 4hp? I bet with some work it would put out 5hp. It appears to be in good shape, so much so that it would almost be a shame to change it from stock.

Nah. Go ahead…

    I have one of these. It is blue. Top speed on flat road about 48 mph. 100 mpg. I have had it since 1974. Fun, durable two stroke.
