Been working on this lately, finally have it to a point where I can share pictures. The wheels are off a later model as the originals are nearly nonexistent and when they do turn up they go for big money.

It’s a fun little vehicle, pretty rough ride though. The high/low range transmission allows me to go just about anywhere. With 7-8hp it really helps to have the low range!

I will probably do a respray in the near future and then add all the correct decals.

Here are a few pictures:

Nice!

I have a 1984 Yamaha YTM200ER. 200CC 3 wheeler with electric start and reverse. Its shaft drive. I need to restore the plastic on it as it is starting to chalk and fade pretty bad. It has front shocks with rear and front racks. Got it when I was 9. Must have a million miles on it. Wore out 3 sets of tires.

I need to clean the carb on it and it will start. Had it running last year but was pretty rough. The 25 x 12 x 9 tires are getting harder to find in different thread styles.

Lime Green!  Is that the original color?  That 3 wheeler has to be great for two tracking around the farm. Did it start out as a basket case, like Bobs miget? Anyway, it looks great now! Nice job.

Edit: correction- Parrot Green.  Looks like you have a small piece of history there.

Must be nice to have electric start, reverse and suspension! I looked up 25x9x12 tires and yeah the tread is all wrong for what you have. Get it going and use that thing. Yamaha 3 Wheelers are somewhat rare as they came in late in the ATC craze and 3 wheels were banned from production shortly thereafter.

Funny thing is way more people have been hurt/killed on ATV’s than 3 Wheelers. Well, not funny at all, ironic is a better word.

You are too quick! I was about to say it’s Parrot Green. Pretty bold color, looks right for 1970 though. It wasn’t in too rough of shape. No rust, fresh paint, just a ton of mismatched parts and no seat. Most parts are hard to find and very expensive. I gave up on the tires as I wasn’t paying 1K for 1 tire.

My neighbor I grew up with had one. We had TONS of fun on that. I recall his having chevron treads. We would tie a rope to a big saucer and pull kids in the neighborhood all over the place. We would come home and regardless of temps, light, etc. we would stay out until our parents came looking for us. They would have a fit. So we would come home to a cold dinner, got punished, a week later we were right back doing it again. We both got Yamaha GT 80's which were cool, but we never had the same amount of fun we had with that trike.

This is a picture of a 100 point US90. It has the original wheels/tires. The Chevron tires were on the rear the front was ribbed. They are unusual in that the rubber is molded onto the hub. So the wheel is the tire...

Wow. That thing is one sweet little machine. I had never seen one like that before. You did a great job of bringing it back together. It sucks that the original replacement tires were so much. I will be searching for those tires just to see how the tire is molded so that it too is the rim. Thanks for sharing.

Thanks Eric! This one isn’t that dangerous, you would really have to try to hurt yourself on it.

Here is the 1984 Yamaha YTM200ER I got when I was 9 years old. Started on the 2nd pull. Needs some TLC to restore the plastic and new decals.

Cool!

Shaft Drive, reverse and electric start. You are spoiled. About the only way I can see to clean up the plastic is to paint it. Decals should be available. A worthy project. I wouldn’t mind having that during hunting season.
