Hi, you're in luck-I just joined the forum and happen to have the '64to'72 year Chilton's manual from the local library. Your bike is a Yamaha U5 Newport 50(CC) with a 4.5 hp engine, auto trans and gets 200mpg at 18mph(not the top speed). It also has oil injection and rotary valve fuel induction. Yous is missing the leg flaring on the body, similar to a Vespa, but more modern and cooler looking. Guess I'll get to my own question later but glad to help! Gotta go!http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v219/joeballer/IMG_1040.jpg
Anyone know what exact model this is, and how it looks fully restored?
Any information would be great!
