Sammy Miller started working with the TL125 and XL250 engine. The TL125 was the first Honda Trials attempt using the small 121,9cc two-valve sohc engine from the SL125 Trail Honda.
Honda R&D team was placed at Sammy’s disposal to develop the new Honda Trials bike. He decided to start with the XL250, but found a lot of difficulties to adapt it from the Trails needs to Trials requirements. Big efforts where made to improve carburation, complete a new frame, new upper yokes, also replaced the rims for alloy ones, and a lot of work on the suspension definition. The silencer was also redefined too obtain the maximum efficiency.
The example on offer today is presented with a 1974 millers development engine. The TL250 is a fantastic opportunity for restoration and would need just minor recommissioning work to enjoy as it is. Supplied with a u.k registration document.
