Lot Details
1972 Yamaha SC500
In the running for most fearsome dirtbike of all time has to be the Yamaha SC500, a 496cc two-stroke single that channeled its prodigious power through a four-speed gearbox. Intended as more of a desert racer than a pure motocrosser, the SC could easily get up to velocities that overtaxed its period suspension, leading to tense moments for its wide-eyed riders. Produced for just two years, the SC500 is one of the rarer Japanese dirtbikes.
