Thanks for letting me join your great forum.
In the early 70's a man by the name of David Pilkington was riding a Yamaha TY250a bike that had a chrome frame and chrome tank and seat pan.
He road in the Brisbane Ekka show doing stunts and was in a movie called Naturally Free.
If anyone has information regarding this gentleman or the bike, pictures or a copy of the movie please let me know. Trying to do a story on this.
Cheers
Jimmy

TY250 with a chrome frame attributed to Dave Pinkerton sold on EBay only a couple of weeks ago. Search EBay item no 172255048533.

Then again .... Maybe you bought it.

Ah yes Greg.
