The year 1987 saw Steve racing his 350cc Yamaha in the TT F2 race, which after finishing 10th and 6th in previous years, he went on to win.

The 1987 TT winning bike, with documented history and in running order, will be offered for sale at the Silverstone Auctions Motorcycle sale on Sun 13th November at the NEC.

The bike is currently painted in historic Yamaha “speed block” colours.
Steve raced the bike in the 1985 Isle of Man TT Formula 2 and finished 10th; raced again by Steve in 1986 in the Isle of Man TT Formula 2 and finished 6th; in 1987 Steve won the Formula 2 Isle of Man TT race. So this presents a great opportunity to own a piece of Steve Hislop/TT history.

The bike’s frame was built in January 1985 by Derby Race Services and sold to Steve Hislop on the 7th February. Designed by Clive Padget and his father.

Copy from the Derby Race Services order book is included in the lot. The bike is presented in ex-race condition and in good running order.Rare & Historic Bikes At Silverstone Auctions Sale November 13 Nec Motor Show
