In 1949 the first motorcycle to be produced at the new Thorndorf factory was the 250TF. The first 300 were in the colour of yellow( or in my eyes Custard colour) The ignition key was in the dynamo cover(after the first 300? the key was located in the headlight)The TF quickly got the reputation of being reliable,well built and with the low speed torque excellent for sidecar work. In Austria today, they are very desirable and command high prices. No TF’s were imported into the UK,but were available in a modified form called the E M C/Puch TF i believe sales were few( I have never seen one for sale or a mention in 50 years!!) But there was a road test done which can be seen on another page.
