Charlie’s almost at the start line… which is a step closer to the finish line.


Hello cheeky!

The clock is ticking so I’m pleased to say that the first of the three stages of my TZR project is just about complete. The first stage has been the build of a 1988 TZR250 2MA out of a variety of boxes of parts lying around our workshop, and the rolling frame of a similar project that Beej started (and stopped…) some five years ago. I am missing only one crucial part currently in development: a bespoke radiator hose from Samco, which is in the post, so I can now start planning for stages Two and Three, the latter being a race on this bike against the field of Yamaha Past Masters (YPMs) around the Snetterton 300.

Getting to this point has been a long road of sourcing new parts, cleaning and servicing old ones and calling in favours. The biggest thus far, apart from getting the green light from Fast Bikes’ Beej to build and race his old bike, was a package from Paul Traylen in Jersey containing a 2MA tank, giving me permission not only to use it, but also paint it, meaning the clean white race bike pictured here did not have to come complete with a yellow and red retro style tank.
