Default Help me with this Motorcycle.

Hey guys! Im new just joined up.

Anywho I recently got this motorcycle from my friend here. And they didn't have any of the paper work for it anymore. And Im wondering what model it is and year?

Im in the process of cleaning it up. I was surprised I just put a new plug in it and some gas kicked it a couple of times and fired right up. And it set for about 20+ years I believe or longer.

I heard somthing that I could get the vin number off of it and get the year and model of it. But Im not sure how if some one could help me with it would be awesome!

Thanks in advance guys!

Edit:

Here's the pics

T991,

Welcome to the site!

First notice - this site is not image-friendly. So, you need to upload your pictures in another site, and then paste a link to it on this one.

We have a whole lot of folks that hang around, with troves of information. So, get the pictures to us to look at and we'll see what you've managed to acquire!

Hey thank you. Ok I uploaded the pictures to a different site and posted in my post again. Thank you for pointing that out to me.

And the seat seemed to have been recovered because one side of the red cover was coming off and I looked under and saw the original seat. Its black in color. And would anyone know of a great place to order parts for this motorcycle? Thanks again!

I will check the photos at home later today; they work fine on that computer.

Surely there is something on the bike with a manufacturer's label; an air filter, label under the seat, something?

My dad used to have a Yamaha that looked like that. It was an 80cc two-stroke.

I don't know much more about it other than we have a picture snapped with my mom, dad, me and my three sisters all piled on it putting down our street in Los Angeles.

Try that these days!

Wow, lol yea i was surprise when i first took it out on my place to test it. Has alot of power for a little bike. The only thing wrong with it was that the gear shifter wouldn't shift.

Not inside the transmission but the mechanism out side and the clutch isn't working. But I can't get to the clutch since the screws that hold the housing on the motor are stuck in. And since there very light metal makes it harder lol.

Buy an Impact Driver. Harbor Freight, probably $10. That's the only way you're gonna get the screws out of the cases on these things. Japanese manufacturers made their case-screws from select Wisconsin Cheddar, until circa 1992.....

Alright will do. I have a Harbor Freight near here. Yea the screws are horrible. What would you recommend for a replacement screw?

And while I was working on the tires and brakes on it today. I thought I might check around for a number or something on the frame.
On the right side (left if your siting on the bike.) there is a number pressed into the frame.

Its letters and numbers only like 5 or 6. Could this be the vin number? If so how would I use that to find out what it is?

T991, I'd root around the 'Net for a Yamaha ring-ding (2-stroke) specific forum.
They'd be much more apt to help.
