Seeing the popularity of off-road racing, particularly on the west coast of the US, Yamaha attacked the off-road motorcycle market in the late 1960s and ’70s.
Introduced in 1969, the AT1 Enduro was powered by a 123cc two-stroke single, rated at nearly 12 horsepower, mated to a five-speed transmission. It features Autolube automatic oil injection, head and taillights, a cross-braced handlebar, and a chrome luggage rack. Instrumentation includes a 100-mph speedometer and a tachometer with an 8,500-rpm redline.
This 1972 Yamaha 125cc AT2 has been on static display in a private museum setting with many other small displacement off-roaders. It was purchased from Kaplan Cycles, CT in July of 2020. A 2,500-mile bike, it was subject to a complete, ground-up restoration by a capable friend of the shop. An NOS speedo was installed with a plethora of NOS parts. A rebuilt top end, fresh clutch, overhaul of the forks, brakes and all new electrical system ensure the electric start bike is a reliable blast to ride. Fresh paint, badges, chrome finishes, etc. ensure it looks as good as it rides.
