Description

Up for sale is my TY250 trials bike. The bike is unrestored and unmolested. has been used but not abused. I purchased the bike from an older gentleman who had owned it for many years but had been storing it for about 20 years. All the bike needed was a carb clean and it fired up immediately. The bike starts first kick every time and has good compression.  Engine is solid. no rattling. clean oil in when I found it. nbsp;in immediate need of nothing.  Headlight and taillight work as they should. high and low beam. I am unsure if the oiler works. it is there and there's oil in the tank. but the oiler has been disconnected. Inside of tank is rust free. when I bought the bike it had some surface rust in it so I flushed it out with dilute phosphoric acid to neutralize the rust. There is a significant knee dent on the right side of the tank. I think it's restorable but it would take some metal pulling by a professional. It also needs a new rear tab which has broken off (common).  Fenders should be replaced for they are aged/cracked and the seat needs a re cover.  Lighting on/off switch broken off in the on position.  All pretty basic "old bike" details.  All in all. this is simply put an all original (except tires and new tail light) survivor which was lightly used. I think this is a nice find for you could just jump right on and ride it as is. or it would be a prime bike for an easy restoration. I have just had it in my shop along side all my other bikes and decided I have no real need for it.

 I also have a second complete headlight that I will include if the offer price is nearly met. These are extremely rare and worth around $200 alone. Will also include the original tail light which is just the base. no lens.

If you are interested in shipping. it's all on you. I will take the bike to Forward Air to be freighted but that's about as far as I will go shipping wise. The bike is for sale local also. so if the auction terminates early that is why. This bike has no title. trials bikes are not street legal and a snail would probably outrun you anyhow! Thank you for looking and have a nice day.
