Cure For The Winter Time Blues: 1987 Yamaha SDR200

sde left

This SDR has all the makings of a project to keep you busy over the winter but hopefully rewarding you in the spring.  It’s mostly all there, it is titled and damn it; it’s a stroker!

UP FOR A 3 DAY LISTING, YAMAHA SDR200, 2CYCLE WATER COOLED, RARE IN US, I BOUGHT THIS AS A PROJECT TO RESTORE OVER THE WINTER, HAVE BOUGHT A FEW MORE BIKES SO IF THIS SELLS QUICK I GUESS I WILL LET HER GO, THESE WERE BUILT BY YAMAHA 1987-1988, THIS ONE IS TITLE AS A 1990, BMV SAYS THAT WAS THE YEAR IT WAS BROUGHT TO US. THEY WERE NEVER SOLD IN US. THIS ONE NEEDS WORK BUT IS 90% THERE, PREVIOUS OWNER HAD A LITTLE KNOCK OVER (his words) AND TOOK IT APART TO FIX IT, NEVER HAPPENED, TANK HAS A LITTLE BONDO AND CRAPPY PAINT, NEEDS LEFT HANDLE BAR AND CONTROLS, I HAVE A LEAD ON SOME PARTS IF IT COMES THRU THEY WILL GO WITH IT. TANK IS CLEAN INSIDE, CLEAR IS COMING OFF CHROME, RADIATOR HAS A DENT AT CAP, FORKS GREAT AND STRAIGHT, NEWER SOFT TIRES, NEW BATTERY, BRAKES WORK GREAT, GREAT HARD TO FIND CONVERSATION PIECE. FIRM ON MY PRICE, I WOULD LOVE TO RESTORE THIS SO IF IT SELLS QUICK FINE IF NOT I WILL GET TO IT

It’s dirty, grimy and dusty;   just how project bikes should be.  It’s probably been completely apart as the frame would have been silver from the factory.  Once cleaned and freshened up I think it would provide a lot of smiles.   You sure won’t see many of them, I guarantee that.

The asking price is $3000.

See it here.

  • I like the model, seems very rough, I would be a buyer for $900

  • Jimbo,
    Crack that wallet open a bit, a title on a street stroker is worth $900 alone.

  • I never knew about this model, and now i love it. The jap market must have been amazing. This bike is such a neat concept- compact, simple, cheap to maintain, good looking fun machine, and judging by the record of DTs it wil most likely be very reliable too. It looks so fresh for its age, and being so small, it must be a blast with the 2stroke engine. Good thing it is a single. I was always looking for a 2stroke road bike above 125cc that would still be a single cylinder, due to ease of rebuilding.

  • Claimed 255 pounds. I’ve always wanted one of these. Or a Goose 350 http://www.motorcyclespecs.co.za/model/suzu/suzuki_goose_350.htm

    Parts might be a pain to find for the engine. But probably any 250/400/600 switchgear from that age will work. And since it’s 2-stroke, not much goes wrong with them when they’re stored for long periods. Getting it to Cali is a problem–I’d be in at $1800 or so. Don’t think he’ll get any takers–not exactly the part of the country that values small and lithe.

  • Obscure and interesting two stroke! But the rough condition is the biggest drawback- this is in no way worth $3000. That would be a fair price for a complete, running, original example. This one’s really been messed with- it’s not going to be easy to find parts, and you’re going to be looking at a lot of time to make it right. Doesn’t add up.
