Hi everyone,
Here's a pic of my XL250 that I restored over 12 months ago and registered for the road.
I have since rebuilt the engine with the 270cc bigbore kit and it goes really well.
I have many pictures of the restoration and many spares. I also have a friend in Sydney that has about 5 of these who is just completing his restoration.
I even know of a bloke in NZ that has built a brand new engine from parts bought from Holland, CSMNL. The lengths some people will go to.
I have ridden the bike to Woods Point, Vic and the Dargo High Plains Rally with the Monarchs MCC.
Whilst it was very hard against a 60kph headwind the little bike performed very well on the 18kms of dirt into Talbotville.
I call my bike the "Smell the Roses" because you get plenty of time to do that whilst riding.
If anyone needs parts or assistance give me a Yell!

May we still be riding when the sun sets!
