1967 YCS1

I bought this Yamaha yesterday from my uncle. From what little info I have found online they seem to be rare. I have not yet decided if I want to restore it, or just clean it up and ride it as is. Does anyone have any idea on the value, or a good website to find some info about this model. The bike is complete minus the side covers, and turn signals.

Well, it is one hell of a cool little 2-stroke Scrambler that's for sure!!!! Put some street tires on it, some clipons, and polish here up and you will have a sweet ass 180cc cafe pseudo-racer!!!

That's the BOMB!

Those little Yammie twins of that era were the cat's meow.

Very nice motors with sweet, tight sound. That bike is an excellent resto project that would make any nostalgia rider green with envy.


What an awesome catch. Congrats big time!

I don't think it came with signals. My dad has a YM1 305cc outside and it doesn't have any. That said, that is a sweet lookin bike. Congrats.

It has a turn signal switch, but I don't see any place where they would be mounted. I am wondering if it was an option, but you got the turn signal switch either way.

hey man. i just got that same motorcycle and i can say it is a rare find. the bike came with the OPTION to get turn signals, but all of them have the wires for the signals. the side covers shouldnt be too hard to find either. I have seen many on ebay and other websites for pretty good prices. if you fully restore the bike all or mostly stock, i have seen this bike sold for $10,000. good luck man.

schrock hasn't been around for five years. I wonder what happened to him and his awesome Yamaha.
