TWO-STROKE SPOTLIGHT: PAUL HOEY’S 1998 YAMAHA YZ250
“I have just completed my 1998 YZ250 Ohlins 360cc Noleen replica. This bike was an original used and abused survivor. I completely restored and refurbished almost every part of this bike including a NOS Noleen race team ported Ohlins 360cc top end kit, UFO plastics, Throttle Jockey original Noleen race team graphics and seat cover, GP alloy fuel tank, Ohlins Shock, factory Krooztune Suspension KYB fork internals, Lightspeed Carbon Fibre Parts, Dynoport USA 360cc big volume exhaust pipe and carbon fibre silencer. Excel A60 rims, Talon hubs, Renthal sprockets, chain and handlebars. SCAR grips, Applied Racing triple clamps and Pirelli MX32 Pro tyres. It’s been awesome fun building this bike and I can’t wait to race it. –Paul Hoey from Australia
