Well...for anyone still wondering about this bike...YES NEW UPDATES lol

So been a long time but I got some things done! As far as the resto part it's basically done, now it's time to get it functional.

I popped into the dealer the other day and got a few parts ( that had been sitting there since last year!! ). I also was surprised that they had the brake master cylinder Pistons right there in stock-snatched those NOS parts up quick!!

So I got the brakes finished, crossed my fingers that thy didn't leak and voila all good to go!

I also removed the wire loom and will get that soldered together and wind up the loom. That takes care of the electrics for now.

I also got the speedo ( which I found at an absolute BARGAIN-these things are worth well over $350!! ). So that is mocked up, although I need to paint the bracket ( or send it in with some parts for plating )....

Here is the speedo...

There's still the exhaust to do, I thought I had the header-muffler gasket but alas I forgot that too!!!

I fitted ( well attempted ) the throttle cable only to find the one is too short I think it's the push cable....

Great job you done on your resto!

Here's mine from a while back with a few "custom touches". She's a 1985 XR250 RF. Main add-ons are a nos 1985 aluminium swing arm for a 1985 XR600, the speedometer and a pair of nos forks for a 1991 CR125.

So after MANY years on this project I have finally concluded this project ( well the build portion anyway ). I am yet to start it and ride it

I present....











If you'd like to catchup on the build you can search for the entire start to finish document here on the forum.

For those amoung you that have a keen eye for detail you'll notice a few key parts not on the bike.... But I'm happy with this as the final product!

I will be showcasing the bike at the Australian supercross championships in the bike 'museum'/showcase! I'm very excited to showcase my bike at such a large event!

Thanks Val!

I got them off eBay.... But I can't remember the name of the seller. I'll need a new set soon though, these ones are already perishing :/

Default Project Xr 250 1984 revisited.

What a labour of love an amazing result, I have my family bike which is in dire need of restoration and has been sitting in our shed for the last 10 years, from memory the top end silver pins were shooting out the top of the motor which sounds pretty dire, would love some advise on where I should start looking, hoping to find the right person to help restore the motor and other parts.
