Would prefer it to be Australian complied.
I spoke to Ian Gowanloch [ the importer at the time ] and he said he bought in five.
Condition- complete but not necessarily mint.

I do like the colour scheme on that YB5....even if not original...kind of updates and modernises the look....and Drew could buy and ship

Mind you...if I went down that route...I'd ask him to buy this one as well...all non original as Kwacker lump....but then you could use it everyday and not worry

https://page.auctions.yahoo.co.jp/jp/auction/g191423908

seems to translate as 1300.....bloomey eck!!!

(Mind you...lower pictures seem to just indicate a seat unit and front mudguard...me no speeky jappo)

Mind you the YB says 2600...presumably start listing prices??

The YB5 hasn't reached reserve yet so who knows what it will go for. However, the prices are relatively low in Japan so you could get a bargain. There is a YB7 for sale on there at the moment for $1500. Cheap.

Thanks for that Fish... so I found the YB5 on Buyee...joined the auction house...organized my paypal...spoke to a shipper...then Buyee informed me that I could not bid on this item... it appears that Buyee is an auction and shipping company and a item like that requires to much paperwork as far as customs are concerned

If you joined "Drew Unobtainium" on Facebook.....he could organise all for you including bidding and shipping.....I think he's a Brit....but he lives in Japan...and this is his job....he organises the bid, the crating he makes himself and then he ships with paperwork...evidently for a fee...a couple of people on here have used him to get 2-strokes out of Japan and sent to the UK

I ended up biding on it through a company here called Import Monster, which specializes in Japanese auction houses. [ thanks for that rpo83 ] I didn't set the reserve high enough so I was out bided... which was a shame... as it would have been a fun project

I just hope the new owner doesn't start stripping it down like the DB4 that's on that site at the moment
