This he kindly agreed to and below is his story which I hope you will enjoy.
Back in 1995 I felt like having a go at building another competition bike having a few years earlier put together a pre-65 trials Tiger Cub using a Bantam frame and an engine from 1959/60 Cub.
The bike was ok but the jockey was s..t, and having fallen off too many times whilst taking part in events, I decided that it was time to do something safe and stay in the shed.
The inspiration for the Yamaha goes back in time to the 1960's when my hero was Phil Read.
I have included in the photo’s some taken at Oulton Park during those early days when Read would turn up in his Citroen estate (that was before he came in a Roller), the works transporter was a Commer van with Yamaha painted on the side, a far cry from the palaces that the GP riders are provided with today.
It was following the purchase of a book in 1995 chronicling Japanese Racing Machines where I saw a photo of the Yamaha YZ623 that I decided to have a go at making a replica racer and a trip to Gary Burton’s place at Cawston saw me rummaging through piles of bits and coming home with the basic parts needed for the project.
He was good at his job and the then fledgling Yamaha Company took him on as their number one rider and supplied him with 250cc and 251cc machines for him to campaign in national meetings in the UK.
Forks are of un-known origin but may be Honda, they have been modified to fit the Yamaha head stock and are of a heavier construction than the somewhat skinny RD items, clip on’s of course have been used along with alloy levers. The engine and box etc, had been sitting somewhere and water had been allowed to get into the crankcase, it was at a bit of an angle and consequently the big end that side had picked up some quite serious rust damage.
The engine was completely stripped and cases, barrels and heads sand blasted to try to make them look like the sand cast items fitted to the factory racers.
