The memories of the TR250

Dear CR
I really enjoyed your article on the Frank Perris Suzuki TR250. It took me back to 1972 when I also had a TR250 ex-Doug Lunn (nice chap).

It was really a super six with TR250 heads, barrels, carbs, ignition, etc. It had MP forks and a Grimea front brake.

It was about as fast as a normal TDIC Yam and gave me several top three positions at the old long circuit at Snetterton.

It was very reliable until it got to the Manx GP. But that’s a long and painful story!
Thanks for the memories.
