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 i am going for .




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.

Very Nice! I'm a fan of the early Hondas too- hope it was a great price!

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.

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!
