Rd250 352 Been In My Shed 30 Years
« on: May 11, 2019, 08:01:10 AM »
I got this in a deal some 25-30 years ago, it's a RD250 352, numbers match and haven't been messed with, it's disc front end, numbers start 353-505, would i have any issues getting a dating certificate for this and getting it registered, no idea if it's a uk bike but i really don't think it would be usa
any thoughts?

I would send our dating officer Paul a message and see what he could do for you...  :)

-5 , makes it Uk/European, probably Uk.
If it’s in one piece I guess there is a high chance it’s still on DVLA , fingers crossed Paul turns up something.
Probably butterfly blue ?
I have one that’s in bits waiting it’s turn for attention. Originally belonged to Bobby, then Neil, now me. We call her Rita (also my mothers name) as the reg is ORA 😁

Ah yes Rita - butterfly blue with a lovely pale blue hammerite frame to match!!
A mate and I bought it back in 1990 as a project, that we never got around to.

Progress on YR5 project is painfully slow, nearly 4 years now since I started work on it!
