Hello! First, I want to congratulate you on a wonderful website! I am a car/motorcycle restorer as a hobby, but a web developer by trade, and I have to tell you that yours is one of the best motorcycle sites I have ever seen, and I've been looking at them for years!

Secondly, I have a question: I have been collecting Yamaha Enduros and MX bikes and Suzuki MX bikes for a long time. Last week, I bought a YAS1C in an auction on a lark, knowing nothing about them. I have never seen one, and have no knowledge about them. As I develop a plan for the bike, and seeing that you are experts on them, I wondered if you might advise me if there is anything notable that I will have trouble locating in the way of parts. The bike is quite complete, but the seat is in bad shape. The bike has sat for a very long time, but only has 6,000 miles on it, so it doesn't have much wear. The only parts I can think of I need off the bat are a seat, grips, throttle tube, and foot pegs. Any advice you can give is much appreciated!

Thank you so much..for not only your collection, but the wonderful videos that allowed me to hear again, the wonderful sound of the first bikes I owned as a 16 year old...a 100cc Yamaha, and then a 180cc (first year model which immediately displayed a flawed 2nd gear design that basically ruined my summer ). We beat these bikes unmercifully at times, and they just kept going. I loved them then, and now at 66, envy you for having the thrill of riding them. I currently have my 1975 Honda 550/4 that I bought new...has never failed me in any way. but those 2 strokes...oh, the memories.

Great job..thank you for sharing with the world.

I grew up wanting an AS2C and was checking out the internet when I came across your youtube videos. You've done an excellent job on all your restorations. I've been hunting for an AS2C for about a year now but haven't found the right one yet.

Thanks for the download of the rider's manual and best wishes on all your future projects.

I am 17 years old and live in Sundsvall Sweden and I have a 1976 Yamaha RD 125 that my dad inspired me into finding (my dad bought it for me as my 15th birthday present after I found it through ""). I drove it about 10 000 kilometers last summer and I like it alot. I just wanted to say that after finally finding your website, Ole and Joacim I must say that I have found a hidden gem on the internet and I will start looking through all your restorations. Were do you get all the nice parts from though? Just ebay or some other hidden gem website? Email me.
