Yamaha RD250E 1979

yamaha rd250My Yamaha RD250 has been around Bromyard from new. Originally purchased in 1979 from Mead & Tomkinson in Hereford by Jon Potter (a well-known local DJ and former Sunshine Radio presenter), who passed it on to me in the early 1980’s after having a rather challenging existence under his ownership! Once reassembled I rode it for a few months, until the 125cc law came out for provisional licence riders, after which I parked it up at the farm as no one wanted it.

Some years later I removed the mouse nest from the air-box, fitted a new battery and tyres and then took it on an epic trip with the lads from Bromyard Motorcycle Club to the 2013 IOM Manx GP.
