I got a call to say the throttle cables ( motion pro ones ) are on their way and so is a new fuel petcock. It's all looking good and it seems like the more I work on this project the less headaches I have

I stripped the wiring off the donor bike and managed to piece together the basic loom. I still have to tape it together but at least it works

I've sourced a new master cylinder for the brakes as well another 'big ticket' item off the list....
One part I'm struggling to find is the decompressor cable that runs from the handle bar to the engine........ Another NLA piece...

Stevo, this is impressive! I bought an 84 XR250 last year with intentions to restore it but the motor turned out to be way worse condition than I anticipated so I ended up parting it out on eBay. Ended up making a good chunk of change so not that mad about it.

Are you looking for a new decompressor cable or just one that works? I have a box of cables and some parts at home still, I can check tonight if that one is still there.

Thanks for the offer, looking for new preferably

The brake master arrived today!! I was nervous that the two aftermarket parts ( brake hose and master ) wouldn't match up but they did thankfully!
Pictures to follow....
All I need to do is replace the silver lever with a black one getting closer....

I'm ordering the speedo cable soon and should get the speedometer and that linked up soon

Ok so I've got the brake parts back from blasting, debating if I should paint them black again or go for a more modern finish and leave them natural?

Just a quick shot of the bike as it currently stands....


Some better pictures coming tomorrow lots happening!
I picked up the gas tank and a few other goodies, mainly some odds and ends that I missed.
The gas tank looks really good! Although it is slightly slimmer at the back by the seat so I may get back to the drawing board there...
I'm impressed with the sprocket cover and the header pipe guard ( not pictured ) that we t out for ceramic coating...
The master cylinder for the brakes caused me a lot of grief... I need to replace the rather expensive pistons. Anyway, I'm going to clear out the shed next and reorganise the bits for the bike ( everything is everywhere lol ). A lot more updates and better pictures in the next few days

I really like Aqua blasting and new hardware....
