Have You Seen or Heard About Yamaha Mountain Bikes?

Hey guys, I just wanna ask if anyone of you have seen or heard about mountain bikes built by Yamaha Corporation. I happen to own one, but I don't know what model it is...anyway, just for now, I just wanna find out how much info you know regarding their bikes. I'll try to post some pics of my bike so I can find out what model it is. Thanks!!

That is pretty much what I remember too a full suspension single speed. I had 2 friends who each had one. One red and one yellow. Their fathers were both car salesmen too coincidentally. Heavy as hell. Great for jumping off of stuff.

Just a little history about my bike: This mountain bike actually came as a surplus from Japan. One of my uncles work at the shipping port...and believe me or not, this is where he got this bike, along with another one. He bought the bike for only around $80 each (a total of $160, right?). Then one time, my uncle sold one of these bikes to my father for around $95...that was like around 1996 or 1997 when he bought this bike. When I was already in first year high school, he gave me this bike...and so, I decided to customize it myself. When my dad bought its bike, it used to have slightly used parts. Now, only the frame, the cranks, and the shifters (thumb shifters) aren't replaced...the rest are new. It cost me around $300 to restore this bike. Though it weighs around 13 kilos, I can still get a hang of it.

Love how the head badge has to reassure you it's a bicycle.

No one is telling you outright it's a cheap bike that's not going to be worth anything in the future. It's just a typical department store bike. Sometimes car or motorcycle manufacturers will license their name on department store bikes, but it doesn't make them collectible. There may not be any model name because it might be the only "model" that has the yamaha name slapped on it. In whatever case if you enjoy riding it, good for you, but it's not anything special, sorry.

You're probably right. It reminds me of when Jeep had mountain bikes as an incentive. Every Cherokee came with a roof rack and a (cheap, rebranded) mountain bike.

Yeah, I do believe my bike's a low-end one, but I do love that paint job...my friends usually ask if I custom-painted it..but when I said that the paintjob came along with the bike, well they just dropped their jaws. I can't believe that they would appreciate (even I myself) my low-end bike

Yeah, I did wonder about my bike being the "typical" bike...though it did came directly from Japan...I don't really know if it's a true Yamaha bike, but hey, I do enjoy riding it, especially on weekends where I take it for a minimum of 80km rides...no problem chasing with other friends of mine who own a Giant or a Fuji...
