The Way We Were – Yamaha RD250LC


Daniel Wesley was aged just three in this photo: the RD250LC belongs to his mum. Daniel explained the history about her bike. “She bought it new, and still owns it. In 1982 it was stolen in Amsterdam, but thankfully we got it back. Me and my dad later went touring around Europe on it. The engine was rebuilt for the first time this year, the salesman who sold us the bike originally did the work.
