KEY FACTS
● This Yamaha TZ750 is an attractive example of the series production racing motorcycle,
built by Yamaha to compete in the Formula 750 class in the 1970s, and which has since
been comprehensively restored.
● Power comes from a 694cc two-stroke four-cylinder, producing 100bhp, coupled to a six-
speed transmission.
● This TZ750 has been with the seller in Zaandam, Netherlands, for four years.
EQUIPMENT AND FEATURES
● Described by Motorcyclist magazine as “the most notorious and successful road racing
motorcycle of the 1970s”, the TZ750 achieved nine consecutive Daytona 200 wins,
starting in 1974.
● Another triumph of note was when Joey Dunlop rode to victory in the 1980 Classic TT.
During the process, he beat the lap record on the Snaefell Mountain Course, with an
average speed of 115.22 mph.
● Its design comprises twinshock suspension, a high-strength frame and wide tires.
● This early-production 1974 TZ750 ‘A’ is finished in a two-tone white and red livery,
accented by a black frame and a black seat pad.
● It rides on 18-inch wheels, shod with Michelin tyres.
● During the restoration, it was fitted with new carburettors, crank seals, a custom-made
period-correct exhaust, and new big end, engine, wheel and steering head bearings.
● The original service and parts manuals will be included.
CONDITION
● Its two-tone paintwork is reported to be in excellent condition, having been
comprehensively resprayed.
● There are minor blemishes on the seat pad, though the major touchpoints present well
overall.
SUMMARY
This Yamaha TZ750 is a comprehensively restored example of the rare series production racing
motorcycle, presented in an attractive two-tone colour scheme. Now ready to be enjoyed, it
would make an exciting track day toy, or a fine addition to a collection.
