TY250 was created by gp10

I am thinking about getting a 74' TY250. Any problems I should look for? I know they didn't make too many of these, parts availability any worse than any other bikes?

bullet proof great bikes, mind you that was 40 years ago lol. Had one at work that came in twice drowned in a creek in an observed trial--so a fail lol--bent the rod both times from drowning it on full song. Just bent it back straight with something--a bar that fitted good through the eye--got it as square on as we could measure & it carried on quite happy till next time then same again. Wonder who bought that when he eventualy sold it!!. Had a TY350 myself but didn't like it as just pulsed too hard to tick over around obstacles. Had a 175 come to think & they were great & made an excellent kids bike--not for trials--put forward mounted foot pegs & low bars, sorted the gear lever & brake pedal lengths & was just great. So that's one bike of many i should never have sold.

A member here (Meis) has one I've ridden. Fun bikes! He might have more info for you. The things I can remember was he rebuilt the seat for more padding (uses it as an enduro) and replaced the stock Teikei carb with a Mikuni. Seems to be bulletproof.

As Mark T said very fun bike....bulletproof and parts seem to be available....I just wish I had more time to ride mine !
I changed the carb over to a Mikuni because I have all the Mikuni jets.

Also I think they are great looking bikes IMHO and being designed by trials champion Mick Andrews....its a very good design.

Great play bikes, dad had a couple of TY 250's, I thought they were big, heavy and handled funky compared to my montesa cota , dad rode the crap out of his , just the usual stuff for repairs, no major issues, engine is based on the DT 250
