c.1980 Yamaha TZ125G Racing Motorcycle
Frame no. 3V3-000270
By 1973, Yamaha's air-cooled over-the-counter racers had been superseded by the water-cooled TZs and it was only logical that Yamaha's next customer 125 should use an engine in effect half that of the TZ250. The TZ125 developed in line with its larger siblings, gaining an exhaust power valve, disc brakes, alloy wheels and frame, revised engine dimensions, etc as time progressed. Although never an established part of the scene in England, 200cc class racing has long been popular in other European countries, and this TZ125G was raced in this class by the vendor in Scotland and Ireland until he retired from racing in 1990. The big-bore cylinder and piston have since been replaced with the machine's original (used) Yamaha 123cc cylinder and piston. Described as in generally good mechanical condition, the machine will require re-commissioning before returning to the track. A 38mm carburettor is the only notified deviation from factory specification.
