Dear CR I re­cently had the op­por­tu­nity to pur­chase a 1977 Yamaha TZ250 that was orig­i­nally sold to Cliff Goe­bell by ABC mo­tor­cy­cles of Mid­dle­sex in 1978 and raced at ev­ery Manx from 1978 to 1984; also na­tional meet­ings. The TZ needs a full restora­tion in the next few years, when I have time, and in the spirit of pre­serv­ing his­tory I am keen to bring the bike back to life ex­actly as it was in 1984 when Cliff fin­ished fifth at an av­er­age of 100.54mph at the Manx. Can any­one help me with any fur­ther in­for­ma­tion about the bike, or any­thing that would help with the restora­tion at all? It doesn’t mat­ter how small the piece of in­for­ma­tion is, any­thing that I could find out would be greatly ap­pre­ci­ated. Thank you. Paul Chap­lin Umina Beach Aus­tralia

Hello Paul, I’ve in­cluded your let­ter this is­sue to leave it open to the massed ranks of the vastly knowl­edge­able Clas­sic Racer read­er­ship. If any­one sends us the in­for­ma­tion you re­quest, we will pass it on to you. Good luck with it all. TC
