It’s based on a 1985 Jap import Yamaha FZ250 Phazer, which was a 250 DOHC 4 Cylinder 4 Stroke which revved to 16,000rpm and produced 45bhp. It was built by the previous owner to do the Spa Classic which it did and runs TZ750 fairings, Honda 125 wheels, handmade megas alongside other modifications.

"Political correctness is a doctrine, fostered by a delusional, illogical minority, and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end."

I've got a Hailwood rep so this should be red and green not white  :)
Good luck next year on it anyway

It’s painted in the colours that used to be used by ABC motorcycles as the guy that built it raced for ABC back in the day. Works well for me as well as it matches the helmet colours of John Surtees with a single blue stripe running the length of the tank and seat unit, and being a Surtees myself it's a happy coincidence.
Doesn’t look likely we’ll get any racing this year do it might be 2021 before it gets out, you never know though we might get out.
