What a pleasure to read all these comments that show the strength of memory. We all have the same feeling inside, we were teenagers, ours first bike was often a 125cc. For me the 125 AS3 was the bike that i would have be happy to own in 1972, but I was 13 years old at this time and I had to wait until 1977 to buy my first bike, a Yamaha 125 RDX (1E7) blue. And then it was the continental circus every day ....
Now, I am 53, and I am restoring a 125 AS3 EUROPA of 1972. Thank you for your wonderful website and for the perfection of your work.

Just found this wonderful sight! I'm 59 now but had an AS3 from my second year at college - Marjohns in Plymouth. That was in 1974. I used to ride it from Stevenage to Plymouth, which can't be far short of 300 miles, not bad for a 125! Through the snow too - the things you do when you're young. It was a beautiful bike and to see one restored as you've done it, and to hear that wonderful stereophonic engine again after all these years, is magical! Thankyou.

Hello Ole !!! Thank you for the invitation to your wonderful sight. I can see you have the love for these old bikes as bad as I do. Keep up the great work saving these wonderful old bikes. If you need more keys I should have the factory keys for all the old bikes. Great Job !!!! Thanks, AJ

Hello and thanks for your wonderful web site. I now live around the other side of the world in Bali Indonesia. There are many small bore Japanese bikes from the 70's here so I have bought a couple and intend restoring them. My favourite is a beautiful little 1969 YL3. Seeing the quality of your restorations gives me something to aspire to. Thanks again.

Just wanted to comment on your fantastic website, and from a Yamaha AS1 owner your site has inspired me to restore me AS1. As much I would like to have one as well restored as those you have displayed I have had very limited funds to do this. Anyway, we are getting there, but, I have a couple of problems I am unable to finds the answers from either the hand or service manual.
1)Though, I have bled the autolube pump via removing the screw on the pump body and rotating the drive until fluid comes through. The oil is not coming out of the pipes at the inlet into the barrel?
2)I have mixed and petrol and oil and placed into the tank in attempt to get the bike started, but, though it seems to want to start, it doesn't, even after many attempts. I have checked that there is a spark at the points and plugs, to which there is a visible spark.
I have checked the timing as best I can, purely by removing the plugs, turning the crank until near TDC, and adjust the points gap etc.
I am not a qualified motorcycle mechanic, but feel a little confident from owning a selection of two strokes in my teens. Hence the reason buying the AS1, as I owned one of these when I was 17 / 18 and now, just a little older at 52.
If you have any advice, this would be very gratefully received.

Regards and A HAPPY NEW YEAR,

David Duffy
