Your Collection: 1971 Yamaha Mini Enduro JT1

This weeks collection comes to us from Dennis McCorkle.

My retirement project has been to restore my original 1971 Yamaha Mini Enduro JT1.  I won this bike in a contest from a weekly motorcycle newspaper "Motor Cycle Weekly" at a half mile dirt track race at Ascot Speedway in Gardena, CA.   This was the second place prize!  The paper didn't make it for the long haul but the bike did.  I have made training wheels for this bike and my 4 kids and 2 nephews,  plus multiple neighbor kids (all adults now) learned to ride.   

The first picture is a banner  (circa 1960's) from a local Yamaha dealer that burnt down.  This banner was salvaged.  

Pictures 2-4 showing my bike that I have restored from the ground up.  Using all original Yamaha parts.

After a few test rides when I had completed my project, the last picture shows where it now is displayed in my family room. (My wife is not too happy).
