1974 Yamaha YZ80A vintage motocross race bike! YZ80 YZ 80A

Rare first year and the most sought after and collectible of the YZ series. 

This bike is completely factory original! NOT restored. I purchased it a few years ago from the original owner that was in his eighties. He bought it brand new on February 18th 1975 from Mullins Marine Sales (Triumph and Yamaha dealer) in Victoria BC Canada for $549.00. It was manufactured in January 1974.

He told me he came into a large sum of money and bought an acreage to build a house. He bought this bike to use around his property. He only ended up riding it around his yard a handful of times, no kids ever rode it. He did not even know this was a motocross bike. It ended up being parked in his basement. It spent 40 plus years in climate controlled storage. This is most likely the nicest unrestored YZA in the world. 

Everything is original, all the paint, the chain, all the fasteners even the IRC Tractor Grip TG-1 tires! 

A motorcycle can only be original once. It has never been apart!

All the rubber is still soft, the seat is soft, the fuel lines are soft. It is even still has the very rare front and rear reflectors. 

It runs, rides, shifts and stops like a new bike. It starts on the first kick and runs like a champ.

It has a custom stand that I had made meant for permanent display that actually clamps to the frame, this is so it can not be pushed off the stand in case it is bumped or a child tries to climb on to it etc.. It can be removed from the stand by undoing one bolt or the stand can be used without the clamp.

There is VERY LITTLE wear.  Unfortunately it did have some thing fall against the right side of the tank years ago in storage so there is one dent. Could probably be mostly massaged out by a talented paintless dent repair guy with out touching the paint. The inside of the tank has very light dusting of powdery rust but is not rusty and flaky. Treating the inside of the tank would be a good idea if you plan on using the bike. I just wanted to leave it totally untouched. Other then that and the odd very small mark it is mint!

Comes with a copy of the original bill of sale from 1975!, as well as the original owners manual and tool kit. True piece of motocross history. 

Only selling because of change in circumstance in my life.

Please ask all questions first. DO NOT assume anything. Please see my feedback. I want to keep it at 100%.

I am doing my best to describe it accurately. If you happen to be in the area I can show it anytime. As mint as the bike it it is 43 years old and I offer no warranty or return.

I will help with shipping in anyway possible. I can strap to a pallet or maybe even build a crate if needed. It ships from Victoria BC Canada but I am close to the Washington State border so there may be a few options if going to the USA. 

May end auction at anytime if sold locally.
