1961 POINTER

See the garage page for picture of this beauty

1961 Pointer.
250cc, 4 speed, 2 stroke twin.
Yes it is Japanese.
Yes it runs.
The parent company made warplanes in the 2nd world war.
After the war they could not make planes anymore.
So they started with engines in a pushbike frame and moved
onto this classic you see. In the 1950's they outsold Honda (in Japan)
They had a good product.
But
In 1963 they could make aeroplanes again.
There was more money in planes.
So the Pointer motorcycles were dumped for more profit.
