North America's wide-open spaces are the perfect playground for off-road motorcycles and the importance of this leisure-orientated sector has long been recognised by European and Japanese manufacturers. Yamaha began contesting this market in the 1960s, offering a range of two-stroke single-cylinder trail bikes and purpose-built moto-crossers as well as twin-cylinder 'street scramblers'. Powered by a single-cylinder, air-cooled, two-stroke engine equipped with reed valve induction, the trail-styled DT250 enduro was one of Yamaha's most successful models of this type during the 1970s. Unlike some of its contemporaries, the DT was quite good on the dirt, Bike magazine's John Bulley reckoning it would even cope with a real enduro competition. This un-restored matching-numbers DT250 spent many years on display in a dealer's showroom in Ohio, USA before being sold as the dealer is nearing retirement. Imported into the UK in March 2015 and offered for restoration, it comes with US title, customs document and NOVA declaration to facilitate an application to register it as an imported vehicle.
