Basement Find 1981 CR 250
 
Found this 1981 CR 250 Left hand kick bike in pieces. I am starting to do a complete overall of the bike.

This is what the bike looked like when i got it.

This is what it looks like now. I am hoping to have it rolling on wheels by this weekend. Waiting on parts, and new tires.

Looks like fun! First year for the wet top end?

Been a long week waiting for parts and powdercoating and polishing, but i almost have everything done.
Got my tires today, so i mounted them and they are looking great. I wanted to stay as close as orginal, but i wanted to spice up the tires a little bit.

So far this week, all i did was wait, but late today i started to put together the bike. This is what i have done so far.

Nice work! What did you do to the spokes to get the color?

That bike is looking sweet! Awesome work on bringing that poor CR back from the dead.

Here's a short clip I took of a '81 CR at the Honda Museum:

Reckon your bike could surpass this in beauty!

The problem i am having right now is finding OEM plastic. I have found aftermarket but no OEM. Not sure what i want to do on this problem.

I think the spoke coats look like ass, but, it isn't my bike anyhow. :1drink
