    Sent you a PM Tommy.

    For everyone else:
    Rims are 4.25/17 and 3.5/17 on standard TDR250 hubs. Tires pictured are 150/50/17 and 110/50/17 but I have a 140 on the rear now as the 150 rubs a bit on an o-ring chain.
    Blue/gold spot caliper off R1/R6/etc bolts right on but a smaller master cylinder is recommended for better feel.
    Front fender is Suzuki RGV250 vj21 with a custom bracket from the UK.
    Front disc is FZR600/Ducati/etc 320mm.

    These are pretty much my dream bike, can't get enough of the two stroke smoke. If anyone ever has one for sale in the US or eastern canada let me know.

    I love the whole concept of these TDR's. I've wanted one for a long time. In Brazil they only have the TDR180 based on the DT180. I thought of trying to frankenstein something together with an RD350 motor but it would never be the complete package. I've since moved to the pacific north west of US. I haven't looked around here but maybe in Vancouver BC. My next dream place to live is in Portugal. I see them there but not cheap. Here's one -> https://www.olx.pt/d/anuncio/yamaha-tdr-250-2-tempos-IDGadYo.html?isPreviewActive=0&sliderIndex=1
    They have a TDR125 that looks like it might just scratch the itch too for much cheaper and newer too. https://www.olx.pt/d/anuncio/yamaha-tdr-125-r-19-6-kw-IDGEq59.html#1033054a93
    Bet you it would respond well to mods.
