Post Sale Update: This Champ sold for $2,000 in Marina del Rey, California on Iconic Motorbike Auctions.
Over on the auction site, we’ve got an adorable two-stroke scooter than was never officially sold in the US.
In the US, the Yamaha Champ was a one-year-only competitor to the Honda CT70 (check out what Tim Huber had to say about one here):
But in Yamaha’s home market of Japan, they used the “Champ” model name for a scooter that was available in two-stroke engines displacing either 50cc or 80cc. We’re handling an estate sale for someone who had some interesting JDM imports. Some are projects, like this 1988 Yamaha TZ250 that we got running again, and others are ready to go, like this scooter. Unfortunately, it does not have a title, so that will limit what states it can be ridden in. But it runs great, it’s adorable (come on, it says “LIGHT WEIGHT SPORTS” on the side), it’s very close to reserve, and it could make for an awesome pit bike if you’ve already got a Yamaha racer with the white/red speedblocks.
Find this Champ for sale in Marina del Rey, California with bidding up to $1,623 and the reserve not yet met here on Iconic Motorbike Auctions.
