LOOK BID BUY!!!It's that time of year when a man needs something to tinker with in the garage. And what a man does in his own garage is his own affair!!!SCROLL DOWN FOR MORE PIC's & DESCRIPTION. This very rare and much sought after tax exempt 1970 Yamaha DS6 250 Super Sport has recently been imported from North America where it has spent all its life – the air is thin and the climate is far kinder to motorcycles than ours. This and the fact it's only showing 6415 miles and has been in dry storage for the last umpteen years have helped maintain its boyish good looks. PLEASE CHECKOUT THE PICTURES. As you can see this bike is not complete BUT. This is a cracking start to a classic restoration project. The wheels are very clean with good hubs & brake plates. Forks & yokes look straight with good shrouds. Mudguards are both solid. Tail light bracket is good as are the headlight hangers. Fuel tank has a few dents but is squeaky clean inside. Carburetors are free sliding off the twist grip. Exhausts are original & solid. Seat is in very good condition but cover is punctured. Chain guard is tidy. Sadly the engine is siezed but hopefully it will just be with standing – obviously a bike of this age has done a great deal of standing around!!! but we haven't inspected the engine externally or internally. If you require any further information please give us a call or better still visit our showroom and have a good look over the bike for yourself – after all who are you going to believe me or your own eyes?
