Default Re: TwinHeads : My RD350 and TZR 250

Nice to see that the TZR 250 is alive and kicking. The YPVS system really made things interesting especially when it deployed at a curve or in wet weather. The powervalve system used to catapult the bike from a sedate 70-80 kmph to a 140-160 kmph in what seemed like a couple of seconds. The accompanying noise and vibrations added up to one big kick-in-the-pants. Truly a DrJekyll-MrHyde type of bike. I cant even begin to imagine the terror of pushing a TZ 500 to its limit.

very well said . Why to go near a 500cc when we feel that adrenalin rush starting from 125cc of a TZ. There is a 125 & 250 back here which was used for races only back in 90's, waiting for the owner to give a ride to me or atleast an opportunity to see it screaming in action

If by here you mean Chennai I am guessing these bikes are at the R / R twin brothers shed.

yup .
I believe these are the only 2TZ's which are in running condition. They do have a tzr as well along with few more beauties.

This is getting really exciting. I wish you the best of luck.

I know you don't need it, but the link below has some neat inspiration.

http://www.thecoolist.com/crd-honda-cb750-cafe-racer/ and http://hdwallpaperfresh.com/wp-conte...cer-cb-100.jpg

I would say, keep it simple and elegant. Go for a design that is minimalistic, yet has that old world RD charm about it.
