C.1973 YAMAHA TA125 GRAND PRIX RACING MOTORCYCLE (LOT 694)
FRAME NO. the details below
ENGINE NO. AS3-990905
Following the works team's withdrawal from Grand Prix racing at the end of the 1968 season, Honda and Suzuki having pulled out at the end of 1967, Yamaha continued to be well represented in GPs thanks to its over-the-counter racers supplied to privateers. However, while Yamaha catered for the 250cc and 350cc classes with the TD and TR series respectively, there was no official offering for the 125cc class at that time, although many privateers campaigned race-kitted YAS1 and AS2 roadsters. Following the introduction of the AS3 roadster for 1971, Yamaha at last took the opportunity to offer a proper factory-built, 125cc production racer – the TA125, introduced at the start of the 1973 season – although it continued to share many components with its road-going cousin. The Yamaha factory had officially returned to Grand Prix racing in 1970, and works rider Kent Andersson was given a pre-production TA125 to race in 1971. When the over-the-counter TA125 was withdrawn in 1975, it marked the end of the line for Yamaha's air-cooled production racers. This superb example of Yamaha's historic production racer had already been restored when it was acquired for the Museum. There are no documents with this Lot.

£6,000 - 10,000
€6,700 - 11,000
To be sold without reserve

As with all Lots in the Sale, this Lot is sold 'as is/where is' and Bidders must satisfy themselves as to the provenance, condition, age, completeness and originality prior to bidding.
