1972/3 Yamaha RT3-360, 351cc. Registration number NOVA 18E147956 (see text). Frame number RT1-132071. Engine number RT1-132071
Yamaha introduced the DT/RT line of Dual Sport motorcycles in 1968. They featured rock solid power and reliability with good ground clearance and suspension. The 1973 RT3s went to a 21” front wheel in an effort to improve the handling. It was an improvement, and a change that would last for years in the Dual Sport ranks. It used a 351 cc air cooled two stroke single cylinder motor that produced 28 HP for a top speed of 80 MPH. A 5 speed transmission with an overdriven top gear allowed the top speed mark and made it road capable. At less than 230 LBS dry weight the ride was good, the handling and braking fair for the day. Yamaha’s Auto Lube system of oil injection worked very well and what a big selling point for the company.
This machine was imported in July 2017 by DK Motorcycles Ltd and sold to our vendor, it should be noted that the NOVA lists the frame number as RT113721 not the correct RT1 132071. He has undertaken the following works, replaced missing rear light and mounting bracket, carburettor ultrasonic cleaned and full rebuild kit fitted, new seat fitted costing £350 from P&K Classic Bikes, fitted missing wiring harness with (NOS), replaced missing air filter box, replaced missing tool box, rear mudguard and tail light bracket powder coated.
It has been re-commissioned by A.E. Wildman motor cycles to get it running. Sold with the machine are various spares, including decompression cable, headlight brackets, headlight chrome bezel and sealed beam unit, front mudguard, forks (Dismantled) for re-chrome plating, 2 x cylinder barrels and gasket set
