By far the best selling sports moped in its heyday, the Fizzy remains the most popular ‘ped’ to restore these days. It’s the only sixteener special to attract the attention of pattern parts and manufacturers to a significant extent, so it’s one of the easier 50s to restore. Even so, good, original bikes are getting ever harder to find and prices have spiralled as demand exceeds supply. Mint FS1-Es have sold for as much as £6000 and you’re unlikely to find a good example for less than £3000.
Sounds a lot for a 50, but you’re also buying into a great social scene, many runs and events, willingness to share technical advice (and even valuable parts) and the cottage industry that supports the FS1-E.
Yamaha were the first of the Japanese manufacturers to release a sports moped for the UK. The FS1-E (‘E’ denoting England) was an adaptation of the Dutch-market FS1 moped—itself based on the 1969 FS1 motorcycle. Soon affectionately dubbed as the ‘Fizzy’, the FS1-E became Yamaha’s top-selling bike in the UK just three months after its launch.
