Been there.... Good time to decide if you want to continue with the MANY parts missing... Or broken! I decided to proceed with a project in similar condition and wish I hadn't... Either way I'm sure you'll love the challenge but just bear in mind that the end result that's in your head comes with a lot of hard work and in most cases a big handful of that stuff from the money tree
Very cool project nonetheless! Keen to see how it goes!

Overall, with the exception of the shifter side case, the inside didn't seem too bad

Clutch basket was notched, so I am going to order a rekluse basket. The fiber and steel plates were in the middle of the service limit but the springs were the way too short, far under the service limit, probably the wrong springs, what a surprise...lol.

Here are some inside shots of the old barrel, I checked the number, it was a 2001 if I remember correctly.







Here is the air box after the graphics and a lot of mud were removed. The box was completed blocked at the bottom with mud and cow crap.

Here it is after I finished it up.


I am ordering new cases and other parts when necessary but I am trying to retain as many original parts as possible if they can be refurbished to new condition. This bike will be a racer but I will be keeping it forever.Here is the new seat cover using the cleaned and refurbished stock base and mounts.


Here is the new in the Honda box 96 CR 250 cylinder.

Looking great. I am just getting started on an 88 restoration. I have an 88 and a 90 and both are beaten and bubba fixed. Looks like I have a long project ahead. Mine is looking like more a rest-mod as I am finding it is going to be a mix of years and parts. Your bike will be sweet too. My second favourite to the 88/89 CR 250.

I didn't find any large pieces at all. At some point the chain had derailed and cracked the case at the shifter assembly so, I suppose the derailed chain locked the transmission, while under a heavy load, and the MS bearing spun or twisted in the case.

The frame looked good, there were two dents on the lower frame rails So I will get those fixed.

Are "flo red" and " nuclear red" the same color? Can I get a complete UFO plastic kit with all red pieces?
