Re: 1981 Yamaha BYZ 501

hi, if you should post some pics of yours it should be easy to identify what kind of Yamaha you've scored....
I've uploaded a catalogue for you of yamaha bmx bikes.

Wow! I remember lusting after these bikes when I lived in Ireland in the early 80's. I only saw one or two at the races though. Great find!

It makes it look a little different and has good purpose.

Re: 1981 Yamaha BYZ 501

So bad ass. yamaha didn't screw around on this bike. They used top quality parts at the time.


No more media blasting at this time.
I am always glad to give advice any time!!!
