Bigems XR250RF build

Been a while since I posted any pics of my 85 XR250RF, not much left to do on him now.

Ah the good old days, when a plug change and valve clearance checks were quick and easy jobs!

Awesome Job .
I just bought one of these a few weeks ago and even though it is in rough nick I still reckon it is a good looking bike but now I am inspired to restore it like yours. Only problem is i still luv to take it out and get it dirty so the resto may have to wait for a while longer.

Geez that looks fantastic

Takes me back to the years I spent on an 350RD.
In their day and for a 4 banger, they were pretty good.

dropped you a PM BigEm ...

I have an 84 XR200R and was maybe hoping you'd managed to find a source for an intake manifold for your 250 (I'm told it would fit) ... mine's in several pieces after the rubber tracts separated from the metal base plate :(

cheers
