1976 Yamaha FS-1E, 49cc. Registration number NNH 549P. Frame number not found V5C says 101827. Engine *394-101827*. The Yamaha Motor Co was formed in 1955 as the powered vehicle division of the massive Yamaha Corporation more famous for making musical instruments. The first bike produced in 1954 was the YA-1, like the BSA Bantam a copy of the German made DKW RT125 but in typical Japanese fashion this was soon improved upon with the launch of the YA-2 in 1957. This proved to be an immediate success in sporting events starting a long tradition of achievement that goes on to this day in Moto GP. In spite of Yamahas reputation for performance machines the humble little 'Fizzy' is still one of their best thought of and most sought after products. A whole generation of seventies motorcyclists cut their teeth on this classic sixteener special. NNH is the most sought-after early pre-mix version of the classic 'Fizzy' sports moped in Kenny Roberts yellow was owned by Karen Ansdell of Northampton in 1980 before our vendor bought it in 2009. He fully rebuilt the engine and has fully restored it to a high standard, riding it twice a year around his yard to keep it in running order, apart from that it lived on a shelf in his "man cave". Sold with the V5C, a new battery with acid (note do not start it until the battery is connected or the bulbs will blow), the near side pedal has stripped its thread. Spicers can highly recommend this Fizzy that was last run the day before it came to our saleroom.
