Classic 2 stroke
« on: 06 January, 2020, 11:14:56 AM »
Picked up this little beauty at the weekend.

What better way to enjoy an investment?  :001:

NICE  :062:

I'm assuming the engine has been restored. How many miles has it done?

The engine was re-bored and rebuilt with new top end sometime since 2011, but not sure when and how many miles since.
Currently sitting at 25k.
Looks very clean, albeit a bit oily and dirty right now.
Compression seems ok, but was bought without battery so not seen it running yet.
Main thing for me is that it's a nice looking UK standard example with matching engine and frame numbers.

That'll be a load of fun on the B roads away from the scameras.

Only had one 2T a DT175mx traillie, load of fun in the dirt & for laughing at the big 4T's when they were stuck in the mud or snow. Bad bit was filling up 3 times on a days trail-riding, 35mpg, where did it all go? I only got 50mpg on road.

A mint TDR is getting into serious bucks so yea enjoyment/investment is a great combo,I learned by my mistakes long ago with a Gilera 180 that I sold way too cheap and now mint stock versions are worth strong money.

I say learned because 10 years I bought an XT660X with 560 miles on it have had some great fun on it over that time,3 years go might have been worth 1700 at a push and now on the way to 3300/400 more than I paid for it ill Not make the same mistake twice  :002:

G'day all,

AFAIK the TDR250 was the bike that started the whole "adventure/road" genre. Followed by the Yamaha TDM850, Ducati Multistrada and, of course, our own Tiger 1050.  Yes, I know the Tiger "Steamer" came before the 1050 but I think it was more "dirt oriented" than the previously mentioned bikes which are all more "road oriented".

Always wanted a TDR250 but they never sold them in the U.S.  Looks in nice shape for its age, they really had some funky color combinations back in the late 80's early 90's.  :002:

Looks like you need to get a copy of February's Practical Sportsbikes magazine, apparently they're doing a thing with swapping the TDR motor to a 350 YPVS
