Can you, anyone with the exception of Australia's Number one
fan who resides in Gladstone tell me what it is?
So Rod, you have me curios, do you still think the corrosion makes it unique?
How about you Graham?

OW for factory works bike
434 model designation for TY250
It can’t be an accident it has ended up with that plate on it.
Does it have a compliance plate?
Yes Kurt, it was obviously the number plate! My first thoughts were: As soon as David sees this, he will post a comment straight away. Nice to get something right I suppose.
434 is the model designation for the "A" model only and they came out pre compliance so there is not one attached. OW stands for Original Works I think and it covered several different models?

Greg, you will probably be pleased to know that looking at that
bike set off my "uncanny valley"
because the front guard is on backwards. It has been successfully ridden like that for a long time so it's obviously not a functional problem.
Does anyone else suffer from the uncanny valley effect as it relates to motorbikes?
YES David, I suffer from it and lots of other things too!
Is it Possible that
"A" models came in a box with front mudguard not attached?
Is it Possible that "number plate" was simply next one in the pile?
Is it Possible that the owner and Registry Office were oblivious?
Is it Possible that OW
works bikes were unheard of in Australia at that time?
Chippy, the handle bars are solid aluminum, what made you think of "Ape Style"?????????????
Can someone build a time machine and go back and check?
We can compIle a list of things for you to do to make it all worth while.........
