A friend of mine just gave me his 1964 Yamaha dual sport that he has had since the 60s and he has the title but, has to dig it out so he can tell me the exact model and until he does, I am hoping one of you guys will know what it is.
I have the side covers but, he has to find the seat.


Something fell on the speedo a long time ago.

My 66 Honda runs but, this 64 Yamaha thing is locked up tighter than a whales ass. Confused I hope my 2 stroke guy can work miracles.

Congrats! That's an MG1-T "Trailmaster" 80cc. I have one just like it in white, but the title says 1965 on mine. Mine runs but has a main bearing knocking. They are the replacement to the 55cc "Omaha Trail"

I really like that name "Trailmaster" and am going to take the engine to a friend later today, he's a 2 stroke nut and has Yamaha parts connections I can only dream of.

Hey Ray, I see from your pictures you're being a good water conserver and have let your lawn turn brown! At least you don't need to spend time mowing.

Bill, I stopped watering the lawn in August 2013, The LADWP charges way too much for our recycled water. Rolling Eyes

The engine is off the bike and in my truck ready to go to a friend for rebuild, awesome.
The carburetor is in the ultrasonic cleaner along with a cb750k #3 carb body, there was plenty of room so I had to do it.
The float bowl and all brass are in a cup soaking in 100% Awesome until the carbs are done and then they do an hour @ 140° f also. I love the ultrasonic cleaner, it and Awesome work wonders.
She is cleaning up okay so far for a 51 year old machine.

Those are really neat! I'd love to add something like that to my collection. Could you elaborate on Awesome and which ultrasonic cleaner did you get?

Awesome is a cleaner purchased @ $0.99 stores all over the country and it is made here in Los Angeles.
This is my ultrasonic cleaner I purchased from eBay a few years ago, it is a 2 liter unit and works great.

Do not use tap water in your solution, distilled water only.

I went to drop off the engine and my buddy said the engine was too dirty for him to touch. Shocked
He does not like dirty jobs, I don't blame him as I charge extra to work on dirty bikes.
So the engine is soaking in a pan of gasoline and later on when it breaks 51 years worth of grime down, I'll go scrape & brush off the rest of the nasty so he won't get cooties when he does work on the engine.

I have the crank case exterior cleaner now than it has been in 50 years and will finish it tomorrow morning.

At least 2 pounds of crusty, oily dirt chunked off of the countershaft sprocket alone, it was unbelievable.

I'll also be waiting any updates, especially since I've also got that model on my project list. So this should get me inspired to get started! Laughing

Based on this little ad, they weren't very expensive back in the day Wink
\

Here's a pic of my MGT-1 when I first got it a few years back. Picked it up because I thought they were cool as well, plus it was cheap w/title. Very Happy After riding it for about a mile only, due to a bearing knock, it's be sitting in my shop waiting for restoration.

Parts seem readily available, especially engine parts, so really no excuses not get it up into respectable condition.
Good luck with yours Ray.

Based on that ad, if and when I sell this bike I see a paycheck quite a bit larger than $299.00
