The Holy Grail of the TZ750`s


1973 Yamaha TZ750 Works Proto-type # 409-100001



This is the bike that Kel Carruthers tested in 1973 in Japan that started it all for the TZ750.

Through it`s life it remained in the hands of test and Yamaha Works GP rider Sadeo Asami until it was returned to Yamaha USA in California to meet it`s fate in the crusher. A sharp eyed factory race mechanic made sure that major parts were not destroyed.

They remained in his care until the late 2000`s when I finally was able to purchase them.

The most important parts of the package were the complete frame with the special lay down swing arm, original factory fairing, rear seat. There were 12 large boxes containing the rest of the parts to complete the restoration. Included with these was a ultra rare NOS set of sand cast crank cases..no numbers, just the pair fitting number. (Note) these cases are too rare and valuable to ever use in my opinion. (the engine is complete and has never been started.

The wheels are original set of 7 spoke Morris Mag`s. refinished with the original Cal-Guard gold. (I would not take the chance and race with these, as they are to old).

Carburetion is with a NOS set of Lectron`s and includes all the special set-up tools and parts kits.

Fuel tank has been repaired a few times in the past and has the left hand side Dry Brake for Daytona.

There are many extra fittings on the bike from Carruthers. I believe that when the bike was raced in the US that it would have been looked after at the Carruthers shop in California.

For Rider information on Sadeo Asami just check out the WEB.

The bike will be sold with "Bill Of Sale" only. The bike and all extra parts are the the responsibility of the Buyer for shipping and handling.
