No Reserve: 1972 Yamaha DT2 Enduro

This is from the site Bring a Trailer (https://bringatrailer.com/) ...

This 1972 Yamaha DT2 Enduro was refurbished and converted for off-road use by its previous owner, a vintage Yamaha collector in Dallas, Texas. Power is from a 250cc two-stroke single with a 5-speed transmission, and modifications include removal of the headlight and turn signals as well as the addition of a fork brace, aftermarket fender, and knobby tires. The bike has been displayed in the New England Motorcycle Museum for the last year and has been ridden less than 10 miles under current ownership. This DT2 is offered with a clean Vermont title in the seller’s name.

The fuel tank is finished in Pearl Yellow, while the fenders and side covers are satin black. The frame was also repainted and engine components were polished during reassembly. The seller notes that the paint on the tank shows orange peel and the forks show oxidation.
