Smallest model in Yamahas DT Trail bike range
Many 16 year old riders first taste of motorcycling
Supplied with a sticker kit, seat cover and a V5C
The first bike Yamaha 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. In 1971 the launch of the RT360 invented a new genre of motorcycle, the trail bike, soon all other manufacturers were copying the concept and in the 1970s Yamaha had a full selection of two-stroke singles from 50cc up to 400cc. One of the most popular models was the DT50, technically a 'moped' so it could legally be ridden by 16-year-olds.

This DT50 is from a deceased estate so unfortunately not much is known of its history. It appears to have had a partial restoration at some point with the paint on the frame and swinging arm looking good. A rare survivor of a bike that tended to get destroyed by first time riders, it has probably not been run for a while so will need some recommissioning before use but the engine turns over on the Kickstarter and it comes supplied with a spare sticker kit, seat cover and a current V5C.
