In 1983, Yamaha introduced the IT490, an evolution of the 465 and the biggest of the “International Trial” line. It was a heavy, powerful bike that was ideal for enduro or cross-country riding, though they had a nasty habit of pinging when the engine got hot.
This example is said to have underwent a full restoration with a “fresh engine”, rebuilt wheels, rebuilt shock, and a whole bunch of new parts. The tank is a new aftermarket Clark unit with OEM decals and it’s never had fuel in it. It does not come with a title, and it only has a couple of miles on it since the rebuild.
