Yamaha JT-1 #03
bike with a new rod kit, new piston/rings, decent paint and
newly refurbished seat. Chrome is very nice.
Bike has an original number plate and attachment pieces.
This is an
original number plate and not a reproduction.
model JT-1 can be identified by the placement of the fuel
petcock. The later versions had a new styled air
cleaner set up which necessitated moving the petcock forward
on the side of the tank.
Yamaha sold an
optional Lighting kit for the JT-1 and these holes in the
fender were plugged with simple rubber plugs until you
decided to plop down the money for the lights.
Early JT's had
this Acorn nut on the triple tree indicating the "thin"
steering stem which looks like a bolt coming up from the
bottom. Later models got the steering stem which
looked more like a piece of pipe and then a much larger nut.
