Description:

1974 Yamaha ‘Majesty’ 250cc Trials
Reg. no. n/a
Frame no. Unknown
Engine no. Unknown
Having dominated road racing and moto-cross, the major Japanese motorcycle factories turned their attention to the trials world in the early 1970s, recruiting top British riders to assist with machine development. In Yamaha\'s case this meant Mick Andrews, who began work on the TY250 in 1973. A conventional, air-cooled, single-cylinder two-stroke equipped with Yamaha\'s reed-valve induction, the TY250 proved good enough for Andrews to win the arduous Scottish Six Days Trial in 1974 and the model went onto establish a formidable reputation in observed trails. Mick Andrews and John Edouard Shirt produced the Majesty by modifying the TY175 and 250 cc frames. This example has been fully restored to a high standard using a Majesty engine and a Majesty frame.
