yamaha t-80 townmate

Post by horobags » Tue Jun 02, 2015 7:05 pm

this t-80 is a beauty, under 3,700 miles from new, immaculate origional condition, runs sweet with long mot. Check out the link below when I bought it. Only thing is I want another 90 cub . Im a honda man you see!! :roll: Some say with the shaft drive and exellent build quality that some prefer the t-80 to the cub, but Im not getting into that. :P

I know, :roll: I seem to use the loncin all the time, and the townmates just sat at the back of the garage, Ive only done about 20 miles on it, and it wants nothing doing, I just fancy another cub .

Done my first club ride on my T80 and have to say I'm quite impressed with it. Mines a well used example, unlike yours Mark. It's very comfortable and should handle well.
I need to sort out the steering on my one as it still pulls to the curb at low speeds but straightens out at speed and when the brake is applied, I've already tried a second hand set of forks, so ordered a bush repair kit today.
Having a shaft drive, bigger tank, 4 gears, offset it being 6 volts in my opinion, and they are getting rare, although plenty of parts are available.
The headlamp was rattling about, partly due to a replacement indicator flasher unit loose in the shell and some strange unneeded metal weights under the speedo being loose, the original foam coverings having turned to dust.
Keep the T80, IMHO, and get a C90 usable spare.
Regards
Dave.
