Yamaha YB-1



Seen how much money Yamaha FS-1ES are fetching? It’s mad. You’re better off with this YB-1. Named after a 1955 model and echoing the architectu­re and style of the iconic Fizzie, the YB-1 was introduced in Japan in 1995 to feed demand for retro machines. You get the look, feel and image of a big-money FS-1E, but with a fuel gauge, CDI ignition and none of the faff of trying to run an old bike. This one’s from 1997 and fresh off the container from Japan, serviced and fitted with new tyres and battery, and has done 3400 miles. Ring-a-ding-ding.
