We love weird and wonderful motoring-related goodness here at Top Gear Towers—and when it’s this cool, it should be seen as some sort of public service to share with the wider Internetverse.
Ladies and gentlemen, this is a Gulf-liveried Yamaha Chappy that has been customized for paddock use at racetracks and given its own mini-trailer to pull. Need we say any more? Well, considering you now almost definitely want to buy it, here’s some extra info...
The 50cc trail bike was taken apart and rebuilt for purpose by a race team in the US (who also added the iconic paint job), and it’s now going up for auction at the Race Retro sale. The estimate? Just £500 to £600 (P34,000 to P40,800).
The ’70s bike itself would be cool enough on its own, but rocking about behind the scenes at a heritage race meet with that tire trailer on the back is stuff that dreams are made of.
It’s also only done 1,022km from new, so it should bring joy for years to come. Buy it! But also don’t because we want it.
