Welcome to the auction of my Yamaha TDM 850.

I bought this bike to use to commute to work as it is so comfy and easy to ride.

A new job has forced me to go back to 4 wheels due to the amount of things I have to carry around.


The bike is a 1992 Yamaha TDM 850 3VD in bright red.

It is in a generally good condition for its age, and has some good little upgrades. The first being the front brake conversion using the popular bluespot calipers from the Yamaha R6/R1. This still uses standard TDM brake discs, so whilst there is plenty of life left in the brakes, you will never need to worry about getting replacement brake parts.

The other upgrades are a set of taller risers for the handlebars, which makes it so much more comfy than an out and out sportsbike. Thats not to say that you can't take it for a proper ride, with its parallel twin 850cc engine, it has so much grunt, and is pokey enough to be very fun.

The last upgrade is the tall touring screen. This is especially useful as it keeps the wind from pulling on your neck, so you can easily crunch the miles on this bike.

I have had the forks rebuilt with new genuine seals and also had the troublesome copper washers replaced in the fork legs as well. It has a slightly heavier weight oil in which makes the bike handle that little bit better.

The paintwork is okay. It polishes up well, and I will give the bike a thorough detailing for the new owner. There are a few small cracks on the front fairing, but these don't affect the overall look of the bike.

The seat has a couple of small tears in. I was going to put a new seat cover on, as they are only £30 on ebay, but will leave the colour choice up to the new buyer (I was going to get a black/red one so it looks a bit more solo seat, but somebody else may want standard colours)

I have just put a new MOT on the TDM, and it has passed with no advisories. There is no tax, and it is SORN'ed, but I can give any prospective buyer a lift to the post office to tax it.


Boring bits now. You bid to buy, no tyrekickers. All bids are binding, and there is no negotiation on the final price. It is advertised elsewhere for a sensible amount, so may be sold before auction end.

I will require a £50 deposit through paypal and the rest cash on collection.
