Yamaha 1971 YDS7 RD 250


The Yamaha YDS7 is an iconic 250cc motorcycle. Being the forerunner of the RD models, they are very quick for a 250 but also quite easy to ride with a nice broad spread of torque and the mid-range power.

I have ridden this 1971-2 model a few times and was quite surprised not only at at its turn of speed but how lovely it was to ride in all conditions on both A and B roads.

This particular bike is a really nice original example. There are a few small marks here and there but nothing much and the machine will make a great talking point at any bike meet.  The mileage shows just over 11,000 which in my opinion is probably correct but that is just my opinion.

You will notice the original seat which has never been re-overed, the wheels are Takasago date stamped correctly and overall the bike is in really lovely original condition.

Recently tyres, chain and sprockets have been fitted and you will of course notice the UK style rear light assembly.

We have balanced the carbs and set the ignition timing with the dial gauge on the bike is ready for its new owner to enjoy for years to come.

A really lovely bike, very attractively priced at £4895.00
