The Yamaha Room

With the Ossa and Oilfield

The Rothmans and Cagiva

After much thought there comes a time when common sense has to take over, and so, it is time
to sell off a large section of the inventory as I doubt that I will ever get to ride any of these
machines again.

First to go are the delightful “Rothmans Duo” the 250 RTL and the 260 TLM, both superbly
finished and neither ridden in any event since rebuild.

The Rothmans RTL 250

The 1989 Honda 250 RTL was rebuilt by Adrian Lewis the “Guru” of the RTL and then finished
by myself. If anyone is interested this one can be had for $7500

The Rothmans 260 TLM

The 1991 Honda 260 TLM arrived from e-bay as a bit of a heap but has been transformed into
a magnificent piece and is the only one of it’s kind anywhere in the world. Again not a cheap
bike, you get what you pay for and she is available at $5000.

From the Yamaha collection we are prepared to let the TYZ out of the box for $4500 which is
actually less than it would have cost in 1993 had it ever been imported. It comes with a polished
frame, forks, yokes and bashplate. high polish and sealed exhaust, new Michelins, sprockets and
chain and all other ancillaries chromed. One test ride and one win.

1993 TYZ 250

Next up a chromed, untrialled TY175 with all the polish again, rebored, new tires, cables,
magura levers, new domino throttle, SM tank and seat unit, NJB shocks. A real beauty and
competively priced at $3000

1976 TY175

More from the Yamaha showroom and it’s my Majesty with the altered standard frame, a 320
engine, lightweight exhaust from WES (saves 6lbs), chrome frame, new tires, renthals, domino,
magura levers, fenders in yellow, new rejetted Mikuni, all new cables, chain and sprockets, SM
footrests and tank and seat unit. Special high polished bash plate, and new Falcon gas shocks
…. priced to sell at $3750

MY 320 Majesty

Another Yam, this time the 1977 TY250 with the all alloy finish, alloy guards, high polished
original alloy tank, forks yokes and engine. Many, many wins, everything on it is new from cables
and sprockets, tires, domino levers and throttle even an OEM bash plate and high quality NJB
shocks. A bargain at $3000

1977 TY250D

Finally, Miss Cagiva…… if you like it, then you’ll want it …….make me an offer, it pretty unique,
but no insults and be prepared to write a decent sized check!

1979/80 350 Cagiva

    We have an immaculate, rebuilt TY175 in the 60’s comp style. Totally rebuilt with lots of polished alloy. Silver frame, polished cases, polished alloy mudguards, alloy seat, silver tank – looks terrific. T& MX News (UK’s big off road News paper) did an article on it – un-used since restoration – runs perfect – unexpectantly for sale due to next project – can e-mail pics – are you interested? We are in England
