Yamaha YB100

This is Steve Cooper's YB100 that has recently been sold to fund another project. The little commuter is a UK bike and a very early example with an L2 chassis number. Although a 1974 model it wasn"t regsitered until 1976. The bike was used for fifteen years until the original owner was unable to ride. It spent the next nine years under a blanket and covered in a mixture of oil and sawdust. Following a throrough clean and fresh fuel, aided by a new battery the little disc valve motor fired up third kick. Steve put some 4000 miles on the clock before reluctantly deciding to move the little fellow (known as Rhubard) on to a new owner.
