If you want to win a very special machine ridden by the likes of Alan Carter (former 250cc GP winner) Niall Mackenzie (three-time BSB champ) then look no further!


MoreBikes’ friends IDP Moto, who have helped out on a number of restorations that have featured in our sister title Classic Motorcycle Mechanics have embarked on a cheap-to-enter competition to help shed the LARGE numbers of Pro-Am Yamaha RD250LC machines they have blocking up their Silverstone-based workshop.


Daryll Young who runs IDP Moto – the people behind some of Niall Mackenzie, Shane ‘Shakey’ Byrne and Steve ‘Stavros’ Parrish’s restorations – said: “Back in 2015 we bought loads of RD250LCs and managed to get a grid chock-full of them for a few special events as part of the Pro-Am Revival Series – but now we need the room as we want a smaller fleet of RD-LCs to give people ‘Pro-Am’ track-day experiences. We’ve got a few that are now ‘surplus to requirements’ and this first one (in addition to being ridden by Alan Carter and Niall Mackenzie, was also ridden in the races over a few seasons by Johnny Corrin, Geoff Fowler and Graeme Mitchell.”

The competition: held on www.idpmotocomp.com and Instagram/Facebook @idpmotocomp costs just £9.99 to enter and you could walk (or ride) away (OK, on a track) with a race/track-day ready Yamaha RD250LC.

So what is it worth? Well, Classic Motorcycle Mechanics editor Bertie Simmonds thinks that – with the provenance of the racing bottoms that have graced the saddle and the IDP Moto expertise in setting the bike up, anything between £5-£10k…


Daryll adds: “This is the first in a number of future raffles for bikes we have restored, so I urge anyone interested to follow our page to learn more.” Go to: www.idpmotocomp.com
