About Yamaha DT100

Finding the perfect city runabout has been tricky, but this bike looks like it could deliver exactly what you need, being reliable, agile, and doubling up as a trail bike for those weekends where you need to blow off some steam. The Yamaha DT100 was initially billed as lightweight cross country machine, and while it certainly can handle the less taxing trails out there, the bike has also found a niche as a nimble urban bike. Although released in the late 1970s, the Yamaha DT100 still has plenty of appeal today if you are looking for an easy bike to get started with as a beginner, or a lightweight and reliable bike to commute with. The classic no-frills design is simple and to the point, much like machine itself, and the single-cylinder engine still gives you enough power to zip between traffic. Searching the vast inventory on eBay is a great way to locate one of these bikes, whether you are looking for a 1974 Yamaha DT100, or the later 1978 Yamaha DT100, as well as many other models and parts.
