Your Collection: 1974 Yamaha Noguchi YZ125Sunday, March 24, 2013 | 6:00 AM
This weeks collection comes to us from Dominic Sileo.
[Note: Sorry for the earlier mistake, we had two restored bikes from one person and posted the wrong text.]
If you liked my little Moto-X Fox bike you are going to love this little number. Here you have a genuine 1974 Yamaha Noguchi YZ125. Noguchi is to Yamaha as Mugen is to Honda. Noguchi basically took a stock bike from Yamaha and Hotrodded it. This are extremely rare. People bought kits and tried to clone these factory built racers. This particilar one is a a "REAL DEAL" Noguchi built bike. The name of my place can be chanhed to KeystoneCycles instead of OLD'S Cool Vintage restorations. I think someone is using that name and I would not want to infringe on them. I do this for fun, not sales like those folks...Thanksagain for looking and once again fanastic site and work you do...Attached a picture of the Japan factory boys building one of these Super rare bikes. Mr. Noguchi himself on the left wiitht he white cap. Now is that a cool pidture or what ?
