After a month of waiting, the frame is back paint and it does not work, bad color and dull and more lack of paint, traces of rust ...
In short he is back to repaint this time if I hope as it should.

Recovered frame (part 2)
it has another look now, there yes it is bright white, I let it pack since reassembly is not yet planned, I am waiting to move and anyway I have not recovered all the parts, so storage for later.

I like days like that, well it's really not much but it is a pleasure to receive parts for the 250 CR.
To test, but I think it will do the job, compared to the old original hoses which may no longer be very tight.



---------- Post added at 09:56 PM ---------- Previous post was at 09:55 PM ----------

not too much time for the CR, but today I took a few minutes to check and repair the needle of the low-speed compression adjustment of the shock absorber that will take place on the bike.
So rectify the needle and it starts again. see to have the red screw re-anodized.




---------- Post added at 09:56 PM ---------- Previous post was at 09:56 PM ----------

Small arrival of parts for the 250 CR today, it is always a pleasure even if it is not much.
You can see there a HotRods crankshaft which is logically sold for the 250 CR from 92 to 2001, but after information taken, it turns out that the HotRods (probably other brands too and OEMs) are compatible with the 90/91 ( see even since the 86) so I wanted to check for myself, the vilo of my engine being nickel I will either keep this one in case I have a problem one day and since it will become a rare commodity (it it's been a while since it was not in stock) or resell it. or in the last case I mount it direct, I don't know anything yet.
Then for the handlebars you know it I like the gray handles grips (and if you do not know it now it is done) to make connection with the air box and the future protections of fork and disc in gray also as in the era of factory Honda RCs, and to finish the piece "Vintage" by excelence, the front fender stiffener, I had that on almost all my motorcycles in the 80s, so this is also a little reminder of the past .
I don't know yet what my motorcycle will look like after reassembly, I have only a vague idea, but I hope that it will turn heads in the paddock with fractures of the retina of the eyes






---------- Post added at 09:57 PM ---------- Previous post was at 09:56 PM ----------

OEM 1991 vs HotRods 92-2001

they are the same








---------- Post added at 09:58 PM ---------- Previous post was at 09:57 PM ----------

I needed a Boyesen Rad Valve for a client, so I took the opportunity to add parts for the 250 CR so as not to have to add additional shipping costs when reaching carriage paid.
So not much, a key for the clutch because I have the vise grip made for but I do not like to use it too much, it is more stable and for the price I do not care to make it a.
The good hose to connect the tank to the carburetor, being the wrong size last time, a can of filter oil (very good I use it since 2010) and finally a small part made in Racetech for my rear shock absorber , for those who know

gripe

half clutch housing and rear shock body returned to the house and small covering work (misery cache) on the radiator grilles, just to give them a little facelift while waiting for new ones one day.






---------- Post added at 09:59 PM ---------- Previous post was at 09:59 PM ----------

Hi all
not much new since, it's still on stand-by, but I received a bag of Pro Circuit stickers for temperature control and the shock spring preload nuts.
it doesn't take much to be happy, as Balou would say




---------- Post added at 10:02 PM ---------- Previous post was at 09:59 PM ----------

confinement Covid-19 requires and not the possibility of going to do the work of my new house and workshop (15 km therefore prohibited, I would have to be within 2 km)
suddenly I do not advance on the restoration since I have no place to work, the bike is completely in pieces so in the boxes it does not take up space.
I therefore finished covering the radiator fins, since it was not found in new ones, unless I found a model of another motorcycle that could be mounted on it.



and some pictures from before




---------- Post added at 10:05 PM ---------- Previous post was at 10:02 PM ----------

and here is where I am to this day, I have not worked on the bike since December.
I bought a house and was doing the work to live there, as well as my motorcycle suspension and mechanical workshop.
But because of the health crisis we are going through in France it is impossible to make long trips and go to do work.

So I will continue to post photos as soon as I have further progress on the project, I post all the messages I had put on another forum and that is why you have a lot to do with it.

Maybe I will have messages that will motivate me to keep posting photos and if you have any questions, no problem, I will answer as best I can.

I did not read through the whole thread but man what a bunch of work, it's coming along great!
Don't be surprised if those GPI radiators don't fit, I bought some for a KX500 and the fit was terrible.

Thank you
I did not post a text to all the photos, because it is not easy for me to manage to make myself understood with the google translator.
And I made it quick to make up for the time before I could continue working on this bike.
For the radiators I have to find a 90 ° connector to screw it in and pass the hose a little better.
I also have to find the new fins that could fit on these radiators

my son's last bike (250 CRF 2016)
and my CRF 450R bought new in 2013 and where I mount a lot of racing parts and with which I ride while waiting for the reassembly of the 250 CR
