How about a 1974 (I think) Yamaha 125? Gears are stripped but everything else is good, well as good as it can be for sitting for a long time.

not really wanting a street bike. i did enough crazy shit when i had my infiniti g35 coupe last year at 18 y/o. i would probably scare myself with that bike too much.
