    I've been given an old Yamaha SR125 that I'm guessing somebody else bought as a project and gave up on. It's missing a bunch of bits and while the engine turns over I have no idea if it's a runner. In all probability it'll never be worth what the bits would cost to get it going. So, has anybody got an idea of a college or charity that might be able to use it as something to practice on? I suppose the other option is just punt it on to a breaker but it would be nice if it could do some good. Location is SW England but travel is possible for fuel money.

    I was watching 'Shed and Buried' the other week (yeah, there wasn't much else on) and a teacher bought an old bike off them at a car boot for a class project.
    Might be worth sending a few emails to local schools/ colleges. Good way to encourage the yoof into engineering.

    This one was originally offered to our local tech college, but they didn't want it.

    Traffic is pretty slow around TRC these days so I'd give another 24 hours at least...

    You'd think you'd be able to drag the kids away from their playstation to at least rag the bike around a field and set light to it!

    How very dare you... Sounds like a perfect candidate for bratting, but thats far too trendy and hipsterish for my liking.

    It's an SR125. They haven't made them for at least 16 years, so not young enough?
