Yamaha TY250, another one

I’d reluctantly sold the Beta TR240 , but made a decision to consolidate the workshop a bit and with the focus on Yamaha’s continuing decided to buy a 1974 Yamaha from ebay.

Part of the reasoning was to get something that would do Long(er) Distance trials and that therefore had the lighting kit and was a bit better on the longer distance.

Engine runs fine, its all complete, but will need checking over. Has the original controls and lights, which is nice. The shocks are probably a bit past their best and the rear tyre is old and will need a new front also.

Will do some fiddling with the bike later in the month as work and the SC500 project will get priority.
