THE BIKE SPECIALISTS, TRADING STANDARD AWARD WINNERS. We are proud to offer our restored 1979 Yamaha DT50. This fantastic example has been tastefully restored and is certainly one of the best we have seen having covered just 8,604 miles. The bike will be supplied having had a full recommissioning service and 12 months MOT prior to sale. The DT series was created by Yamaha in the late 1960s when the United States motorcycle market was down. Market research by Yamaha indicated that, despite slow motorcycle sales, there was a largely untapped market for off-road motorcycles. At the time, only a few specialty European manufacturers such as Bultaco and Husqvarna made motorcycles specifically for off-road use. Instead, many owners purchased road motorcycles and modified them for off-road use, typically by raising the muffler, adding braced handlebars, and fitting a bash plate under the engine . Such modifications were commonly known as creating scramblers. The first DT model, the DT-1 trail bike, was released in 1968 and quickly sold out paving the way for future DT's with varying engine sizes. Please do not hesitate to call us for any further details, a small deposit will secure this vehicle. UK and worldwide delivery options available.

What does it do for me?
Exterior Protection - All exterior paintwork is treated with a unique protective coating. This protective coating will enhance the paintwork shine and ensure maximum resistance to environmental hazards from bird lime to tree sap, even the severest winter conditions. The glossy water repellent coating is easier to keep clean and maintains a superbly glossy shine.
Upholstery Protection - Upholstery (fabrics and leather) and all carpeted areas are treated with a durable water resistant coating to seal out moisture and resist staining. Accidental spillages simply bead on the surface, whilst dust and sticky marks are easily removed.
Glass Protection - All external side and rear windows are treated with a long-term, optically clear, non-stick, easy to remove coating. As you drive the raindrops roll off to give greatly improved wet weather visibility and safety.
