Post Sale Update: Initially, this Tyran did not meet reserve with 14 bids up to $1,801. However, it was relisted with a BIN of $2,950, and sold at that number!
Marketed as a British bike, the Tyran was actually built by Mitsubishi with designs from Ted Wassell, a name that may ring a bell if you were a MX nut in the 70s.
Unfortunately, Ted passed away before the bike made its way to market, and the resulting probate litigation postponed the release date by 2 years. By that point, the Tyran 125 was outdated compared to what the big 4 Japanese manufacturers had created. In essence, the Tyran was slower, less reliable, and 40% more expensive than the Japanese competition, so it didn’t last very well. For more specifications, check out this list on Off-Road.com.
This example (VIN: W2591MX) is said to run and look like new after a recent service that included a carb clean, detail, and lots of new parts: gear lube, spark plug, air filter, chain, grips, and kill switch. Compression is a healthy 175 psi. Find this Tyran 125 MX for sale in Vernon-Rockville, Connecticut with bidding up to $1,059 and the reserve not yet met or a BIN of $3,749 here on eBay.
