HillRam: I hope this link helps you
www.classicyams.com - Yamaha YG1 80 cc


If it does then google for yamaha YG1

and then you will find among the results this
YG1 Engine Repair and Assembly Photo Gallery by jetdoctor at pbase.com

If all that has helped then I get to ride it once you get it.

Ram, whatever said and done the price seems too good to miss. I should be talking to you and involving you in my buying process from hereon, for sure. It's a stupendous price. I was offered a similar model bike by a guy working in Castrol bike zone near my house for 40k and it was nowhere near this condition. I was nearly tempted to bargain it down to 25k but let it go because of the condition it was in.

99% chances that this is one of the ICRISAT imports! I have wonderful memories of this bike!

GRAB it!! I can even dig out the names of ex-ICRISAT mechanics - the very same people who used to maintain these bikes!!
