1987 Yamaha YSR50 For Sale!

1987 Yamaha YSR50 For Sale on eBay!

I know, I know . . . To some of you these aren’t sport bikes and should never grace our lovely pages, but to the majority of you- YOU ABSOLUTELY LOVE THESE! You may be asking yourself “How does dd know this?” Well, let me just say this isn’t my first RSBFS Rodeo and I have access to those pesky behind the scenes numbers.

Let’s check it out- shall we?

1987 ysr50 fully restored all fresh powder coating on frame new paint and stickers. Fresh top end on motor dual springs up front new swing arm bushings bike is in perfect condition and needs nothing bike has been sitting in my house after it was restored has zero miles on it since it was done clean Vermont registration in my name ready to transfer

The seller says it has a clean bill of health and is ready for a new home. I’ve zoomed (put your right foot) in and zoomed (pull your right foot) out and back (put your right foot) in and looked (all about) and the only thing that I see is the frame powder coating is too dark/grey compared to the stock silver (I had this same issue on a FZR400 rusty rear sub-frame). I do like that the seller replaced all of the stickers during the rebuild- Nice touch!

Sans the mirrors, I think it’s a tidy resto and based on the bidding activity the YSR club thinks so too. At the time of writing, there are 11 bids and if there was a reserve it has been cleared so, this one will sell.


 

Well? What do you all think of this one? Granted, it’s not a $15,000, zero mile time machine, but it’s purty darn nice.

Check out this YSR here-

Cheers!

  • I think this is a well executed resto mod. I think that the owner did the work on the forkto put in the dual springs instead of the stock single spring setup. The stock bikes are dated, but even in their day their was some corner cutting done.

    As good as this looks, i really want to see inside the tank. I have rarely seen a YSR that didn’t have significant rust. Ethanonal gas doesn’t help.

    Considering the price here, i want to see inside the gas cap. Would suck to get such a nice looking bike to find cancer inside that tank. Because replacement tanks just don’t exist in 2021.

  • I’m one of those guys that never understood the appeal of these 50cc bikes. Help me out here.

  • I’m not sure either NCJ, but I can tell you they always bring the most page views and the last one stands at the top of our most viewed list for the entire year.

  • These were great commuters on a college campus. You could ride them on the streets short distance and park on the sidewalk near the classrooms. Stupid fun riding on sidewalks and places real motorcycles would have caused trouble. The key is short distance.

    The other ideal use was a kart tracks. These days we have groms but back in the day this was the one and only entry point learning to ride without big $ or possible jailtime or death.

  • And chicks thought they were cute…

  • eBay shows sold for $5,400.
