Sellers original description:
David Jefferies 1998 TT R1 Race Bike.
This was DJ'S 98 Yamaha R1 that he used to race on the roads & at the Isle Of Man TT.
The bike has been stored for the past few years & house sale forces sale. Bike has confirmed authenticity from DJ'S Dad.
Bike also comes with V&M clothing & huge posters of DJ racing.
David Jefferies, the much loved and well respected holder of the Isle of Man TT outright lap record, tragically died on May 29th, 2003, when he crashed at Crosby on the TT circuit during practice. The true cause of the accident will never be known and whether it could have been prevented or not will be always open for debate. But it is beyond doubt that DJ died doing what he enjoyed most, racing around the TT circuit at a level which is unlikely to be surpassed.
