250f
« on: July 27, 2009, 03:09:28 PM »
Hi. I know this is a real longshot but i would love to be able to find out what became of my old 250f, only problem is i cant remember the reg number! The only information that i have is that it was white and red and was bought new from Dick Shepperd Motorcycles in Coventry between December 79 and febuary 80.

 I lived in the village of Meriden at the time and sold it about a year later to a guy from Birmingham. The shop where it was bought closed many years ago so i cant access any sales records they might have had. If anyone should happen to have with their paperwork a sales receipt from the above dealers could they please let me know, I"m sure if i saw the reg number again i would recognise it



                  Thank you.

hi, if you didnt find your old rd250 you should be able to find out the reg details from dvla by requesting a history of what vehicles you owned during that period.

they will have all those records on microfich

good luck

Probably more that they can"t be bothered !!!

 Just as annoying as when they won"t find a reg number for you from a VIN/Frame number

  It can be done as the police do it to find rung cars etc

  Lazy  !!!

 Probably say it"s a health and safety issue !!!

Hi again. Have been away for a few years after selling the 250a but am back and still trying to find my old 250f! Reg prefix would have been AC and for some reason LAC sounds familiar but of course after 35years i could well be mistaken!

                  Thank you.

to get the history you need a reg number the dvla wont even do anything without that or a vin if you had that you would have to go through the reg process or hpi type thing then you might have a chance dont yah have a pic? or someone you know have a pic , funny how numbers can stick in your head as i know all the reg numbers of all the vehicles i have ever owned including the 20 i have now but ask me how much a 3p bun is in woolworths and id struggle with that one

I have no photos and have lost touch with everyone from those days who may have had one.
