Considering buying one of these for a bit of a laugh (bombing round in a cloud of castrol R fumes ) but also as an investment . Anybody got one , know what to look out for ?

I have one,they are a pain in the bollox to work on as pipes go up under tank blocking access to plugs/leads partially.Easier to remove petrol tank to access plugs.The 2 stroke tank however is integrated into petrol tank so removing tank is messy too.All 2 strokes should have easy roadside access to plugs.The tdr does not.The engines are solid for a 2 stroke and can be started with your hand.The plastics are very brittle at this stage,I left mine fall against shed door and nose cone disintegrated.Not that many sold so parts hard enough to come by.There is a crowd in Wales making new plastics which are supposedly better than oem.I think tdrs are going to increase in value due to there quirkeness and being a 2t of course.Buy before they become out of reach.

I don't know that the TDR would be considered an investment. A minter maybe but to ride as an investment is silly for a 2T. Buy one. Ride it. Enjoy it. Buy every top end consumable you can find for it for a good price while parts still last.

A friend of mine had one years ago, they're outrageous fun, i never saw something disappear in a cloud of two stroke smoke as fast . If I could get my hands on one these days, i'd have one in a heartbeat! The fork seals and gators went on his, so worth checking
