1987 Yamaha SRX250. Rare, fun, good handling little thumper, just professionally tuned and valves adjusted by LouieQ, new battery, tires virtually unworn. Factory shop manual, Low miles-2215. I bought it last March and have never registered it and have to admit I never will.Cosmetically good with minor chips, scratches and minor cracks in predictable places. Left bar bent a bit. Offering it here before I ebay/craigslist it. $950.00 or interesting trade. Interesting= Streetable Derbi, Rieju, Giro eligible bike or?

This is NotNicky's bike, I am just posting photos for him. He'll put in contact info below the photos.

You are welcome. That body plasticization is cool. weird. Not the kind of book to keep by the bedside.

Interested in Ruffo's sidecar?

maybe I should lighten up the first pic too so it shows more.

Sorry, Tex, beat you to the punch line.

Somebody had one at the track in '05. I thaought it was an RZ350 at first glance. I don't know if it was actually racing but it had number plates on it. It is a comfy fun little machine and easily does interstate speeds.

Nice bike. I had a fly yellow SRX600 a few years back. It was my street bike and when my race bike at the time wasn't ready for the first race . I safety wired it and took it to the track. Got my ass kicked but it was fun as hell. Always regretted selling that bike.

Talk about a cool USCRA semi-modern race class. 250 four strokes. There's the SRX, the NX, the Ninja 250 and I'm sure others I don't know about. Hey..even allow vintage 250's to bump...I think there are numerous vintage 250's that might outrun the modern machines.

Cool bikes.

Tex...I just love two wheels. Never cared for purist...I say if five guys can come up with something new to race...make some track time for them and see if it's fun. Just run'em with another class if need be.
I've said it before...I'll say it again, I'm not married to vintage...it's just what I happen to race right now. I love old bikes, I love new bikes.

I'd love to build a honkin, mono-shock, disk brake, alloy frame, carbon fiber Honda 175. It would be safe...probably safer than vintage chassies. Damn....would I love to come into turn three with a screaming old 175 engine with the rear wheel in the air.
