Introduced At The 1967 Tokyo Motorcycle Show, The Yamaha DT1 Was Just What The Boomers Were Looking For; Priced At $580, $400 Less Than The Husqvarna 250
Motocross mania swept America in 1968, and the Baby Boomers were searching for a cheap, effective and high-tech entry into the sport. Introduced at the 1967 Tokyo Motorcycle show, the Yamaha DT1 was just what the Boomers were looking for.
I have seen steam bikes, rotary powered ones, turbocharged examples and even a few fitted with small-block V8 car engines, but never such a good looking and practical electric motorcycle as the one in the photograph.
I spotted this beauty while attending a car show in South Carolina. The bike began life as a 1979 four-cylinder Honda CB750SS and spent some time as a racing bike. Now that it's been converted to electric power, it is dubbed a CB750R-E.
