"Our family wishes to thank Jesmond for his professional services in the selling of Dad's treasured Mercedes. Jesmond was recommended to us and he truly lived up to his reputation. At a time when we had so much to deal with, the time of Dad's passing, Jesmond made everything so easy for us. He came and inspected our vehicle and took it away. He gave us progressive updates and before long we viewed the amazing advertising video. We were impressed at every stage of dealing with Jesmond. Thank you again."Barbara Giles, Rangiora, North Canterbury, New Zealand
Yamaha began making motorcycles in 1955.
The first was a simple single cylinder two stroke design, based originally on European thinking, but they quickly developed their own style to create the range of nippy and agile two stroke twins.
Introduced in 1968, the Yamaha YAS1 defies all motorcycle logic, even by today’s standards of miniaturisation.
As a development of the previous Yamaha roadster twin designs, the vertically split, twin-cylinder engine is compact and powerful, this in turn is wrapped in an equally diminutive frame that does its best to hold the wheels inline and weighs next to nothing in the bargain.
ABOUT THIS BIKE
- In Absolutely Stunning Condition - this bike won BEST IN SHOW - it came FIRST in the 2018 Motorcycle Show.
- Once on the move and buzzing away in its sharp power band, this 125cc two-stroke is more than a match for machinery several times the capacity.
- The engine is peaky but very usable, and will pull out of the hole left by it dropping out of the power band if full throttle is applied and a little patience used.
- For such a small machine and engine, the AS1 is incredibly tough, able to handle most tasks with comparative ease and with few failings.

These Vintage Japanese Bikes (especially Two-Stroke ones) are turning into great investments.
Now is really the right time to get into them. They don't take much space either. One should think of these bikes as an alternative to a small term deposit. Not only will they look good in your garage, they will make you way more money then if you left the cash sitting in the bank. Plus its fun too and you're in control of your money ;)
