Hogs in the ‘hood: Abandoned Yamaha?

Left for dead?

Left for dead?

I have been seeing this Yamaha around the corner from MotoPreserve for a couple weeks now – and it looks like the NYPD has finally taken a notice too…

A couple tickets adorn this Yamaha, which I initially thought was a Seca from the ’80’s, but it’s missing the rear fairing, so I may be wrong.  It has the standard seating position, 4 cylinders and the cool tank with factory knee-dents, but without the plastic rear  cowling, I am not quite sure of the specific model.

If you are doing a restoration or rebuild, you know that stock side covers can be a bitch to source.  Here is an alternative that can be had for $7, and some creative use of Duct tape.

If anyone knows the exact model of this bike, let us know…
