Top bid­der mate does great

Yamaha TZR350 hy­brid, Dave Carr, Ire­land

Stan­dard bikes aren’t my thing, as you can see. This is my two-stroke cafe racer made us­ing a TZR250 2MA chas­sis and 350 YPVS mo­tor.

I used to live in Ger­many and I bought this from there – my mate bid on it for me. I never met the builder but my mate did and he said he was sell­ing this to fund a sim­i­lar build with a GT750. When I got the TZR I was de­lighted, it’s re­ally well put to­gether and the car­bu­ra­tion is spot-on. It re­ally shines in the up­per midrange. It’s been tuned and it’ll go toe-to-toe with a hard-rid­den SV650. It’s got WP sus­pen­sion, Akront rims, and to­tal credit to the guy who built it; I re­ally en­joy rid­ing it.

Rides as nicely as it looks – top job
