Yamaha SR 250 "The Maniac"
1st – Marco Troiano
Marco looked at the 1982 Yamaha Sr250 and rolled up his sleeves.
He started modifying thoroughly, shortening it and using a unique rear suspension scheme, with a single shock working in reverse, when in traction instead of in compression.
The rear 16” tyre is beautifully and really unusual, being nothing less than a tractor’s front wheel. Genial.
And the tank is straight from a 70’s 50cc motorcycle but Marco doesn’t even remember where he got it from, the fairing and fairing’s frame are homemade.
