1978 Yamaha/Italjet 50 MX by Tartarini


In Italy in the late 1970s there were import restrictions on Japanese motorcycles and so the official Italian Yamaha concessionaire – Mr. Leopoldo Tartarini – imported Yamaha spare parts in quantity to build complete machines. He also created the Italjet brand to sell them, so these special mini motocrossers were sold as Italjets but assembled from genuine Yamaha parts.

Despite its ‘Yamaha’ tank graphics, the 50cc 2-stroke mini-motocrosser on sale here is one of those Yamaha/Italjet machines and it’s in sound original condition.
