Engine & Transmission

This matching engine and frame numbers motorcycle is fitted with the legendary tie bar liquid-cooled 247cc two-stroke twin delivering 35.5bhp at 8500rpm. A top speed of 100mph and sounds fabulous through the correct genuine Yamaha twin exhaust system. The engine, crank and gearbox have been completely rebuilt using genuine Yamaha parts, the history file has 26 detailed photographs showing every stage of the rebuild and the new parts in their Yamaha packaging along with a clock showing the date and time of the rebuild... Incredible fastidious attention to detail. This machine has literally covered 25 miles since the rebuild and will need running in. I have personally ridden the bike and its silky smooth and quiet as you would expect, it pulls strong in every gear and rides as new... Perfect.


The ground up restoration has been completed by a renowned Yamaha restorer to the highest standard. This restoration reflects a no expense spared work of art, you cannot fail to be impressed with the passion and attention to detail that has gone into this Elsie.

The history file also has many invoices for parts purchased, and 2 keys.

More Details

The original LC is a machine with a real cult status and for many good reasons. Its radical styling and technological advancements meant it led the pack from the first turning of a wheel. Easily able to out fox machinery many times it capacity, and power, with a combination of stunning acceleration and sharp handling, the LC quickly built a reputation as the street-racer to be on.

Now thought of as a legend, the production run was a short one, the LC getting a brief period in the spotlight before an all-new power valve equipped model was released during the latter part of 1982.

These short production run Elsie's are very desirable fully restored examples such as this are a rare find.
