Thanks man! Now that I've had some time riding it after the resto I'm really stoked. It rips and handles like a dream. Good luck getting yours finished up.

That's the one I'm looking for. Does it serve any function other than to plug that end of the rack? Mine didn't have one when I bought it and Millennium did a replate and HPP service, so I assume it adjusted up fine without it. Will email PDE to get ... more »

Since 86 CR250 restorations are about as prevalent as store bought titties in Hollywood-- I'll spare you all the gory details and bolt by bolt therapy I've been enjoying this winter. After untold hours, beer and $$ it is coming along but at a standstill

I picked up this peach the end of January and started the process to bring it back to life. At that time there were maybe 8 or ten cases of the virus in the US, but I needed a project. You know the saying "idle hands are the devils
