No Reserve: 1969 Yamaha CT1

This is from the site Bring a Trailer ( ...

This 1969 Yamaha CT1 was purchased by the seller from the niece of the first owner who received it as a gift for assistance with a move. Powered by a 175cc two-stroke single with a 5-speed transmission, the bike was removed from long-term indoor storage and revived with a new battery, spark plug, and fresh lubricants. The bike wears an optional tail rack and remains in stock condition with 1519 miles indicated. This CT1 is now offered with the original keys, owner’s manual, factory toolkit, and a clean New Hampshire title in the seller’s name. Finished in red with silver fenders, a scuff is noted on the rear fender and a scratch can be seen on the front fender. All decals and logos are present and the seat cover has the factory applied stencil. Features include adjustable rear springs and an optional tail rack. Chome wire-spoke wheels wear the factory supplied Dunlop Trials Universal tires. Instrumentation includes a 100mph speedometer and a tachometer with a 8K redline. 1519 miles are shown and believed to be accurate. The air-cooled 2-stroke 175cc single features an Autolube oil injector and produces 14 horsepower in stock form. A 5-speed transmission transmits power to the rear wheel though chain drive. When the bike was removed from storage, a new battery was fitted, the spark plug replaced, and all lubricants renewed including fresh Yamalube 2-stroke oil. The work has been performed by the current owner and no service records are available. The original keys, owner’s manual and toolkit will be provided, and the seller will also include a carburetor rebuild kit and a set of ignition points.
