Yamaha ??? arriving in the morning was created by Pete-RT1

Having culled the collection down to three I felt the need to squeeze in a new addition.
It's currently 300 miles away and will be delivered in the morning.
IMO one of the best bikes of it's time.

It cannot be my RT2 as it's still safe in the garage and I've just cleaned her.

No Mauser, this one is a runner

171cc's of 1978 loveliness has arrived.
Mauser you do have one in your garage.
Alan you were right with it being a 175.
And Rick had a 70's DT, just the wrong DT.
This exact model was the very first bike I owned in 1986, fifteen years old and living on the farm.
Was running but wouldn't idle when I got it, quick clean of the pilot jet, adjust the airscrew and slide stop and she runs and idles.
Tank, panels and mudguards (fenders) have been painted to a good standard.
Needs a battery and I'll change the tyres and brake shoes, but looks pretty good.
Oh, I also need to replace the bath sponge that's currently being used as an air filter.
German import so I need to keep a lookout for a replacement speedo, but no rush.
Happy with my modern addition
