KR250s in MCN

Post by podman » Sun Dec 16, 2018 7:56 pm

Found these in a batch of old MCNs I bought a few months ago, thought they may be of interest to some here, shame it didnt make its entrance at the TT, I think Mat Oxley rode a RG250 in 8'84, would have been great to have seen the 2 battle it out...I bet Padgetts still have the KRs tucked away somewhere, I know he has some spankers new TZR250s tucked away...

Yeah, Padgetts still have a 'brand new' KR as far as I know, Clive sent me some pics of it when it was being moved in the warehouse a few years ago. Sean Collister raced one of Padgetts KR's in the '85 Proddy TT.

And Whitham raced a KR at the Manx GP, but it wasn't one of Padgett's. I know where that bike is.

Great pics....Padgetts place is more like a museum than a shop eh? !
