The TR250 is a one year only. It has the TR4 body but the TR6 frame and drive train. So it has the 6cylinder.
A nice one like this one will be is going between 28-40K.
A Tr6 would not be cost effective but there is a little room for profit in the 250's.
That is of course not counting any of our labor. But we are doing it as a Brother project my brother enjoyed doing his and wanted to do another, and I enjoy showing off my body skills to the world.. ~~(::

This is a 17min video of preparing the frame and painting it. I tried to give the impression of how much was involved and how long it took. With out making a video that ran all day which is how long it took.

Sorry but no on the movie. I am going to try to do the Wednesday Club meeting if you are going down.
