Brazil­ian bounty

Practical Sportsbikes (UK) - - Ps World -

We love un­cov­er­ing PS era bikes we’ve never heard of, like this – the Yamaha TDR180. Built by Yamaha Brazil be­tween 1989 and 1993, us­ing a DT180 as its base (it­self a devel­op­ment of the DT175), this 16.5bhp air-cooled sin­gle gave fun-lov­ing Brazil­ians a slice of Tdr-shaped lu­nacy with­out the price tag of the more ex­otic 250. They’re now a fave among south Amer­i­can re­stor­ers. No won­der.

The go-to resto for Brazil­ian PS nuts
