Make or Break? Spondon TZ250 4DP Chassis.
“What are you doing handling Spondon stuff?”
I never set out to buy this, it just kind of happened. It involved a few messages via Facebook with an old friend who had decided to part with it. After a ping pong session of questions from me and answers from him, we reached that point where I felt confident enough to send him an offer.
He had put a price on it at the start of our chat, but it was more than I wanted to pay.
In my corner was the fact he’d advertised it on Marketplace a week before Christmas, which never found him a buyer.
After a few more messages a deal was done. I then went to bed.
Waking up the next day I sorted the services of Ian from MotoAll to go and collect it for me.
Yes, I had not seen the chassis in the cold light of day. I often do deals like this. I like the thrill of the chase.
I am tempted to keep my 1996 Spondon rolling chassis in the mancave. It’s a cool piece of Spondon engineering and the non Spondon parts are all Yamaha TZ250 4DP. If I do bail out, it would probably make sense to split it up.
Time will tell.
