Description
 
Here is a real rarity for off-road fans - a Yamaha IT400. Aimed at the rapidly expanding Enduro market, the IT (for International Trials) was launched in 1976 as a competition-ready bike at prices the clubman rider could afford. The 400 was the flagship of the IT range and it has attained cult status in America where the bulk of production was sold during its four year run. The monoshock rear suspension (borrowed from Yamaha's motocross bikes) was state-of-the-art at the time and the IT's powerful 400cc two-stroke delivered bucket loads of thrilling power. Our bike is a 1979 IT400 F. It was imported from Arizona in 2010 and has had a full restoration by a man who rebuilds early Porsche engines for a living and who, in a former career, was a works scrambles rider. He has made a superb job and incorporated some desirable upgrades along the way. Starting with a powder coated frame, the bike has a rebuilt engine, trick alloy swinging arm, new DG exhaust system and all new cables, mudguards and side panels. The tyres are also new. All the original parts come with the bike so it could be put back to standard very easily. Other spares with it include a second fuel tank. The Yamaha is UK registered and road legal and comes with 10 months tax and MOT. Remarkably easy to start for a big capacity two-stroke, the bike is capable of eye-popping performance. The power band will lift the front wheel at will if you are heavy handed, but it will also trickle along if needed like all good dirt bikes should, thanks to its wide ratio five-speed box. In experienced hands it should be enormous fun. Not often seen on the UK market and very desirable, especially in this properly restored condition, this is a rare opportunity.
