Classic Yamaha RD two-stroke twin layout

The Yamaha Motor Co was formed in 1955 as the powered vehicle division of the massive Yamaha Corporation more famous for making musical instruments. The first bike produced in 1954 was the YA-1, like the BSA Bantam a copy of the German-made DKW RT125 but in typical Japanese fashion this was soon improved upon with the launch of the YA-2 in 1957. This proved to be an immediate success in sporting events starting a long tradition of achievement that goes on to this day in Moto GP. The arrival of the RD range in the seventies cemented Yamaha's reputation for high-performance air-cooled two-stroke twins ranging from 100cc to 400cc with the RD200 proving to be many future enthusiast's first taste of motorcycling.

This Yamaha RD200 twin is from a deceased estate so unfortunately not much is known of its history. Offered in classic red and white race team block pattern colours, it has obviously been restored at some point in its life, keeping a good degree of originality, and comes supplied with a spare set of what look to be re-chromed silencers, a spare sticker kit, a box of spare parts, a DVLA registration record and a current V5C. Not run for a while, but the engine turns over on kickstarter, it's an older restoration so in need of some recommissioning.
