For Sale - Post Only / My TZ350G for sale.

This is my TZ350 that I raced for several years before having a break in 2015. The engine was fully rebuilt in 2016 by TZ wizard Lea Gourlay.
Lea tuned the barrels, several years ago and this was a fast, competitive bike. (Shame about the rider ;) )

You can see pictures of it here:

- TZ250 clutch
- Larger radiator
- Electronic temp gauge (sensor in the top hose) as well as the original gauge
- Scitsu
- Longer rear shock, worked on by Lea Gourlay
- Seat moved back for the taller rider (I'm 6' 1")
- Original spec so eligible for GP Originals as well as CRMC, ICGP etc

Comes with spares kit including used pistons, sprockets, original radiator, original tacho etc

Needs new tyres and its ready to race.
Very sad to see the bike go, but bad arthritis means I'm not going to be able to race it again, despite wanting too.

Price: £9200 or nearest offer.

Hi all. More details:

This is a Classic Race bike project that a good friend was working on. Sadly he became ill a couple of years ago and died recently - hence it was never quite finished off. The owner was a precision engineer and gunsmith and so everything was made absolutely spot on!
- DCM frame with XT 500 engine
- TZ350 Forks and yokes
- Rear shock set up by Harris Racing
- beautifully fabricated large capacity oil tank
- Has a full race fairing, although not shown in the pictures.

Potentially this is a superb Post-Classic race bike with exceptional handling.
It is looking a little sad for itself in the pics, but it has been parked up in a shed for nearly three years. The assembly though was done to a high quality with the expectation of doing the painting/ finishing next. 

The bike can be seen here:

Hi folks.

Just wondering if anyone recognises my current restoration project or knows any of its history, it's a 1976 Yamaha xs500, quite distinctive colours which is why I'm hoping somebody may know it from somewhere. Keen to find out any history or any other info.

Any information gratefully received.

Thank you
