So I was looking through some old Yamaha dealer materials and found this ad. Anyone happen to know where a copy could be found or link to a clip from either of these?

I think that Devin has posted some of the links to these, they showed up on the Yamaha site a while back for the '71 models (I think!) One for the Monoshock intro too. I seem to remember my dealer having an old video machine that would play these back in the day. It would be nice to see these '72 films be digitized!
Soundtrack could be provided by the Rolling Stones, Wild Horses on a continuous loop!
If I could find a copy of them, I would get it done!
Yamaha has been doing some of this for us, just slowly!
Might be a good backer for the next Endurofest flick . . .
Here's one of the first that came out a few months ago https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cLkoGNvwSYA
Combined old footage and new material. If you don't mind I'll share this on the other group, there are a couple guys there that had family business dealerships, maybe they can turn something up if prompted with the memory?
I remember a TV ad featuring a black RT1 being chased by a biker gang, the RT1 rider had a girl on back, took the bikers through a gauntlet of abuse and down a long flight of stairs then wheelied away, I never have seen that ad again but I remember it left an impact on me.
