@hillram: Congrats mate and take good care of her

AFAIK, the Bajaj M50 and M80 designs were indeed based on the Pearl Yamaha. It was a worthy competitor to the Honda Cub series though it didnt quite achieve the latter's sales success.

Hope Hero Honda reintroduces the Street or TVS the Neo 110.

Default My Pearl Yamaha

Absolute beauty.

B.E.A.U.T.I.F.U.L Ram. The bike looks immaculate, but if my memory serves me right I think the mudguards on the bike should have been in Chrome. Check on that. BTW what does the RC mention this model as, this could avoid the speculation. Congratulations to you for having invested in a beauty that cannot be had off the shelf.

The driving schools here in Dubai had been using these to give two-wheeler driving lessons till very recently. Learn on an 80cc Yamaha, get your license and go buy a 1680cc Yamaha - beat that!

I found this post.
http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/vintag...ml#post1239030 (The Classic Advertisement/Brochure Thread)

The year is 1964 but the bike looks so similar.
