Tiny Yamaha’s

This past weekend was another great jalopy shred in the Reading woods. The 30+mph winds made the drive up sketchy in our tiny Toyotas but it was all worth it once we got to the woods. I severely lacked at taking any good photos but sometimes that’s a sign of how fun the trip was because I couldn’t stop laughing or riding my DT long enough to pull out my camera. So, out of 7 trucks, 18 people, and 16 shiddy dirtbikes… these are the few photos (if anyone has any more they want to post please send them to me):

All because of old jalopy dirt bikes. Another great Sunday in PA.

I’m gonna get weird and say that myself and everyone else was really sweating Kletus’s Yamaha 80. Maybe it was because of how gnarly he rode it or because I can’t remember seeing one in person before. I tried to do some research on these little Yamaha’s here’s what little info I found:

1973-81 GT1 – GT80H
Front Tire (stock): 2.50 x 15
Rear Tire (stock): 2.75 x 14
Ground Clearance (mm): 7.7 in.
Wheelbase (mm): 41.1 in.
Weight (DRY): 130.0 pounds
Bhp: 4.9
Torque (kgm) @ rpm: 4.5 ft lbs @ 7,200

I’ve been in the market for a tiny bike to teach my nephew to ride on. I’ve been looking for a Z50 Mini Trail but prices for them are insane so definitely keeping my eyes open for finding one of these.

Here’s a bunch of shitty low res internet photos. I’m going to look through my stash of old dirt bike magazines to see what other info I can find. If you know anything more about these please comment.

    Great weekend. I’m definitely gonna be scouring through Mid-Ohio for one of these bad boys. I might even pull a Radke if you don’t buy it first!

  2. Radke says:

    …not if I get it first.

    Weird how much of a man crush we all had on Kletu’s berm shredding ability.

  4. Brittany says:

    I^ I def had a girl crush. Haha so much fun with you dudes! Been spending literally 3 hours a night lookin for an old bike on Craigslist. Just may have landed a friend deal. If all goes well, catch yas again next time!

    If any of y’all knuckleheads riding DT175s are in the market for a gnarly upgrade to your exhaust. Theres a Torque Engineering pipe on ebay for a good deal. It’s made for a Kawasaki F7, but wouldn’t be hard to modify for a DT. Ive got a whipsering smith on my DT250 and it fucking rules.

    heres the link. make your bike sound like the popcorn machine it was meant to.


  7. Carson says:

    Also… If y’all really wanna get a raging 2-stroke boner. search expansion chamber on ebay and refine it to “used” condition.

  8. Brian says:

    I put what I think was a torque engineering pipe on my DT250. It was fucking LOUD! Obnoxious loud. So loud nobody wanted to ride with me. I felt so lonely. I had to go back to a stock pipe.
