70 Yamaha qt50 not running $100

I have a 1970 Yamaha QT50 Yamahopper that needs a better owner.


-Engine turns

-good compression

-the only rust on it is light rust on crome parts, not including the araya wheels which shined up nicley

all there except...

-Seat (seat pan is there waiting on new foam/cover)

-Bulbs need replacing

-new nut to hold on the stator flywheel will be needed


Doesnt run, from what i can tell it needs a new coil on the stator, i have started rewinding the original and i may finish that in the next day or so to see if that would work. all new electrical kits can be had for 100 bucks online (stator plate/stator wheel/cdi/wiring harness). or new coils can be had for $20 on ebay.

Its cosmetically rough (some kid rattle can painted it without masking anything off).

I removed the oil injection pump when i was cleaning it up. its a recommended mod by everyone and i did a very clean job plugging the whole using original parts from the pump so... premix only

Would be a great and potentially cheap project but i dont have the time. if you already have a qt than this is a great parts bike because everything is there and in seemingly good shape.

By the time you email me i should have some pics i can reply with.

Athens Ga, Local pick up only
