As promised, here we have the first pictures of our new YCS1 from 1968. It is something quite special, it has only had one previous owner who bought it new from a dealer in 1968 and it only has 3550 km on the meter. The previous owner even had the bike inspected prior to selling it to us so it is completely street legal. We thought it would be a shame not to seize the opportunity to do a longer test run so we got it insured and started it up.

Another first for us is how close to us we found the bike, we get our motorcycles from all over europe and the US but so far we’ve bought very few being sold in our immidiate vicinity, this little gem turned up in a town right next to us, just a few km away.

You can see the pictures and the video of our first start-up and test drive below.

    Unbelievable condition for an unrestored bike of that age. It is surprising that the AS3 looks the same size or even larger than it in the pictures!
