1972 Yamaha LS2 Twin Jet 100 #01

VIN# LS2011301

Blue / White

To the best of my knowledge, Yamaha produced the first Twin Jets, called the YL1 and YL1E from 1966 to 1968.  Those bikes built with the stamped frame were the predecessor to this LS2 but there are obviously many differences.  The YL2 was a 100cc bike but it was a single cylinder.  A few years passed and the LS2 was introduced for 1972.  The LS2 was completely re-engineered and is a great handling machine and they were available in Blue / White or Orange / White.  This was the only year that this bike was produced for the U.S. market and it is a shame that it didn't continue.
