1976 Yamaha BYZ 16

A cool bmx which i can find hardly any information about!!!!

Hi, this is my Yamaha BYZ 101, i have never come across another one of these before, although a friend of mine has the 201 version which 20" wheels.
Its got a shocker on the rear and drum brakes on the wheels, its a pretty cool thing, if anyone could let me know anything about this then that would be great as it is soon to be restored!!
Thanks for looking!!!!

Yeah Im In the UK and I got this from eBay, possibly the same one? I can't seem to find any information on these bikes anywhere, I've only ever seen one other and that's my friends one which is the reason I bought this one smile

Thanks jake, I manages to grab a NOS raleigh budgie seat last night with seat post, not sure how it's going to look yet but if it looks good I'll have it recovered in red as it is black as standard smile

Re: 1976 Yamaha BYZ 16

i think a grifter seat would look better as budgi is quite small what about a commando seat that would be perfect?

Re: 1976 Yamaha BYZ 16

Yeah I thought it looked small, but it's a very small bike so I thought id take my chances as it was dirt cheap :p if it looks bad I'll have a look for another smile

Thanks for the help
