Default Yamaha 1969

The second one - earlier than the first by more than a decade....











Back to the 1986 literature, think about how hard it must of been to manage not only the machine inventory but the parts inventory and service levels as well.

Default Ducati

Had an old Ducati parts manual, also sold on eBay





Full of works of art, went for next to nothing.

But, it went to someone who appreciates it, so all is good.

Cool, I love old bike ads, except your SC500 is an RT3MX, I used to race one...

Someone better build a time machine and let Yamaha know

That is the picture used in the SC500 Parts List, the First Edition dated September, 1972, LIT-10013-63-00 (363-60).

Then again, their could always be the slight chance you are mistaken, as the visual differences between the SC500 and RT3MX are minimal.

Good catch, either way, your comment is appreciated!

Nice pics, I've been a Yamaha man since my first one, a JT1MX, then to an ATIMX, put a 175 barrel on it, then a 360, 490, XS1100 Vision, various DT1's DT2's more AT1's...etc.etc. XT500's....the first year Virago ('82 in black with straight pipes). R5's, RD350's, 400's...

Thanks for the memories. The Francis Barnett was a sucessfull motorcycle company that started in 1919 and ended in 1966. Like most of the cottage brit bike industry they used a Villiers long-stroke 2 cycle for most everything. The Japanese juggernaught shut them down, like about everything else.
