How to Restore Yamaha FS1-E: Your Step-by-Step Colour Illustrated Guide to Complete Restoration
The Yamaha FS1-E is a 1970s icon. Introduced in the early 70s, it became an instant success, giving sixteen year olds their first taste of motorcycle performance and freedom, and totally overshadowing the other mopeds available at that time. Many riders had their FS1-E for only one year before progressing to larger machines. Today, nostalgia for the youthful exuberance engendered by the 'Fizzie' has resulted in many ex-owners wanting to recreate their pride and joy. Most FS1E's have not endured the test of time well, and very few good original examples exist. There are plenty of restorable machines around and this book guides the do-it-yourself restorer through the minefield of initially finding a machine to restore and the pitfalls of a first restoration.
