A couple years ago I picked up a very "basket case" KLR 250 for $200. The big selling factor for me was that it actually had a good title, and I figured I could work on it piecemeal as money came in to allow progress. It is missing a LOT...including the upper engine and carbs, most of the plastic, gauges..but I I figured this would be great to customize. Hell, maybe even put a Ninja 250 into it and make a "Mini - Super Rio" or American made KLE 250...
But then life happened and other projects demanded attention.
I am hoping to get going on it this year, probably first get the manuals and tear down and go through what I have on hand, and research options as I rebuild it. I will be going through this thread for tips and hints for sure!
