Lot 302 - 1980 Yamaha TY125
|Estimate||£750 - £1,000|
|Result||Sold - £784|
The TY models were a range of trial bikes made by Yamaha - the TY standing for 'Trial Yamaha'. They were developed by the French trialist Christian Rayer in 1971 and then by the British rider Mick Andrews who won two world titles in 1971 and 1972. The first TY model to be marketed was a 250cc in late 1973 but the most famous remains the 125cc model which revolutionised the practice of trial in France. It was on this bike that French rider Thierry Michaud began his career, later becoming triple world champion trialist. Two types of Yamaha TY125 were produced throughout his 16 year career - the earlier TY125 Type 541 (1975-1976)and later TY125 1K6 kind (1976-1991).
This TY125 1K6 was recently restored in 2014 complete with engine rebuild and new big end, main bearings, pistons and a re-bore. Amongst the new parts included are the seat, rear shock absorbers and rear mudguard and accompanying the motorcycle is even a Haynes user manual. This lovely un-registered example will surely be a treasure for any prospective new owner.
