Jeff Stanton replica graphics/stickers. Pretty close match other than the newer fork guards and tecnosel cover.  I was going for tribute not replica.
Jeff Stanton replica graphics/stickers. Pretty close match other than the newer fork guards and tecnosel cover.  I was going for tribute not replica. Picture taken after 20 years of garage dirt washed off.  original air filter clean and intact.  look how clean the seat pan is Bike was reassembled from frame up using Eric Geobers Factory RC500 as a template using a DVD photo shoot from Terry Good.  Everything down to the zip ties are to HRC specs. Front end off a 2007 CR250 (89 worse year ever) No modifications required.  Allballsracing conversion bearings used and simple bolt on.  This bike is set up to ride.  NOS Noleen silencer I had laying around wanted to see how it fit.  HRC factory spring from Eric Geobers World Championship bike.  Red grip tape placed on frame to prevent further paint rubbing off.  MSV exhaust billet manifold is a must on any CR to keep the 2 stroke oil off your engine and gain more HP
