Act now you Fool

I paid 900 for the same model (My shop is in Milan IN a stone's throw from Ver-sails) that's a beauty! the fender is zip tied on so it jumps off and doesn't break the tank covers locking tab. At Schnell's current prices There's like $1200 worth of spare parts there! These things rust sitting still, and the chrome on this one's goooood...Buy it give him 1500 and never look back! Long story short when I get back from seattle I'm calling this guy up and offering him 1500 cash, so make your move or forever hold your peace!

Not Craigslist, but... Honda 200 Trials in ME

Saw this in a local shopper that predates Craigslist.

Ha! Thanks for the info. Maybe he will be more responsive with you than he is with me.

Zip ties where used as a weakpoint to prevent fender breakage. I wouldn't worry about that nor get the proper fixture. Loop it and the zips will break, just put new ones on. Lots of nice parts too.

That makes sense, hadn't thought of that.

My dad and I are heading over to the event in Toronto Ohio tomorrow with the swap meet. Hoping to get a better idea of price ranges. The Gas Gas is about 230 miles from me and I wouldn't be able to get over that way until next Saturday. He got back with me today and said that he would want to keep the rear tire and chain and whatever other parts he could use on his 125. I asked him if he got his asking price if he would let ALL the parts go with it.

Guess I will just see what happens in the next week, maybe it's meant to be mine, maybe not. VMD is coming up in July so if this doesn't work out, maybe I can find something up there.

After conversing with several trials riders today and an in depth conversation with Gilbert Reed, I think I am going to pass on the Gas Gas on CL and hold off for something newer. Aside from 2 people here (one is a stone's throw away from the bike, probably good friends with the seller ), everyone I talked to said the bike is priced way too high even with all the parts included. One guy I talked to had a 95 just like the CL find that he paid 800 for and it looked like it was in mint condition. If the seller lowered his price quite a bit I might be interested, but at this point I am going to continue my hunt.

Yeah he is a great dude. Took my number and said he would keep an eye out for me. Him and my dad grew up together down around Dexter City/Caldwell. My dad actually let Gilbert take his first trials ride on his TY250 in the early 70's. Gilbert must have really enjoyed it too, cause he rushed out and bought a Bultaco right after that and has been doing it for 30+ years now. My Dad and Gilbert were memory fogged and couldn't remember if it was my dad's TY or their buddy Stanley's that he rode first, so they were hashing that out for about 10 minutes today. All you can do is sit back and laugh at old hoots trying to remember the good ole days.

2 of the best trials bikes ever made there! 200 Fantic was very very good, and the TY250 is an awful lot better than the TY350 which is more common in the US.

The TY 250`84 and `85 was crap compared to an `86. Weak frame and the worst rear shock ever. By the way I loved my `86 ty 350, but then again I ride at high altitude!

1974 Yamaha TY250 TY 250 Trial Trials Bike Motorcycle - $925 (Altamonte Springs)



For sale is this 1974 Yamaha TY250A trials bike. It is all original parts. The tank and seat are in great shape, although the tank has a couple dings as shown. The tank is very clean with no rust (last picture). The side panel and pipe have the original "Trial 250" logos as shown.

I have not tried to start it, so do not know for sure, but it probably will need some carb work to get it to run. It has good compression.

Sold "as is".

Feel free to call 321-207-9186 or email.
