This years machine is a piece of history! A 1980 Yamaha Tri-Moto YT125. This was the first year of the first model of Yamaha's venture into the ATV Market to compete with Honda, and while it has some historical significance these little buggers have a bit of a cult following with some folks as well!
If you're not familiar with the early Tri-Moto series they have some interesting design differences and features from the Honda counterparts of the era. Our understanding is that this was mainly to skirt around a number of patents on design and component placement that Honda has locked up under their ownership.
This particular machine was brought to the East coast from Arizona last year, it was spotted before Trikefest 2016 and we knew that it would make a great fund raiser machine due to the rarity of the machine and its great condition! There are portions of a graphics kit compliments of Bruce Alleman @ Blue Line Graphics that will be included with the machine.
Some specifications for the bike you may not be familiar with;
Original Cost New: $989
Dry Weight: 243lbs
Transmission: 5 speed automatic clutch
Fuel Capacity: 1.8 Gallons
This is a great little machine that is definitely uncommon to begin with, and especially in this condition! Excellent piece for a collector, a reminiscing enthusiast, people that prefer #TeamYamaha machines, or any one else looking for a sweet little machine for their garage.
