Who has Pink '95 '96 TM250?

Just wondering how many Pink '95 '96 TM250s are in Oz land?

Also what is your experience with these bikes?

Cheers Tony

these things are pretty rare, i reckon there can't be more than 20 or 30 in the country. Malcolm Hall would know. his father, the late John Hall was the importer at the time.
Chris Cater had a 95 like yours. i took it for a ride one day and decided that i had to have one.

Safety Turd. Because the only skid marks should be in the dirt.

I've got a '94 125, that I've owned since 1997.

Does that count?

Same story as my 94. CCA only sorted out the compliance process a couple of years after they began importing the bikes. For $300, you could take your older model to them, and they would fit the ADR gear and get a blue-slip for you.

The date on the compliance plate is the date the compliance plate was fitted.

Yea - nearly same style. We'll count it in.

A couple of years ago I had some work done on my bike by a guy that restores vintage cars. He had a TM250, his son had a works '97 TM125. He told me that nearly everyone that tired to ride the 125 ended up breaking an arm.

94 was the first of the pink, I believe. If it wasn't 94, it was definitely 93. Mine got the black treatment before I bought it.
