but looks are deceiving! In the excitement -yea I'm sad- of buying this bike and having the seller saying it was "renovated" which obviously doesn't translate to the same meaning I had in mind (I'm english living in france) he seemed like a nice boy plus I had no time to spare so I knocked him down a hundred euros loaded it and left trying to get back in time to collect some parts from the local motorists supplier before they closed so I could finish a clients car that evening that I'd abandoned in the afternoon to go see the TY.
And yea you'll all say I should have looked properly but it wouldn't have stopped me buying it as it's the first chance I've had for one at it's price and when I had the cash in my pocket
I'll start the ball rolling showing a pic of inside the fuel tank taken with my 15 euro chinese endoscope.
I know it's been done over a load of times before but I'll post pics of how I go on
I guess there will be many more pics of discovered problems to follow.

Looking forward to following your progress! We didn't get a TY125 here in the USA.
