1962 Yamaguchi YMB for sale at the 2016 Mecum Las Vegas Motorcycle Auction


  1. that is a VERY cool bike. it looks like it can be detailed a bit better with some deep cleaning and polish and wax. I love it. it would be a great bike to have

  2. Yes it's cool. But sooo hard to get parts for.

  3. did they import Yamaguchi into the USA?
    I wouldn't even start that bike. it needs to be detailed then displayed as art and never risk riding it at all. think of it as a full size model of a motorcycle instead of a bike to start and ride down the street.

    1. I don't know if Yamaguchi's were ever imported to the U.S. Hopefully someone with knowledge of the brand will post here.

    2. Yes in California in the 60s they sold a 50cc Yamaguchi SPB Scrambler. To make a long story short they filled a warehouse full of 80cc engines then went out of business. That's where Hodaka came from.

    3. Brock,

      Thank you for your comment. It's great to fill in the historical gaps.
