Yeah, the shock, Alu subframe and the FMF With the ding I put in it, when I cross rutted over a tabletop back in 1990...

Since it somehow was "meant to be" me finding the stolen bike, I have decided to rebuild it back to Stock and keep her. Will be my Winter Project, and this one will probably never be used again. This is the bike when new, and this is Close to how it

The 500 is really sweet, can't wait to see pictures of the 250.

Perfect! I just love it! Great resto, and one of Honda's best looking bikes.

Yeah, I was a bit shocked when it turned up again after 22-23 years...

And a bit weird is that it happened at a time when I was restoring a 90 CR 250 and actually not looking for a bike .... Just happened to help a friend look for a bike for ... more »

Thanks :-) Yeah, I built this because I did not want my Peak/Pro Circuit replica to get beat up.... So this one will get dirty, but it will be taken care of and not abused ;-)

Thanks Kidkawie! Yeah, I understand completly. I had to build this as a bike to ride as well... he he he Your bike is just amazing and it would be a shame to ruin it.

Thanks

These bikes had killer looks, and a great engine in my opinion. Suspension wise they were a bit harsh for the average rider ( if you didnt ride supercross.) Now with upgraded suspension this bike is super fun to ride ... more »

Finally I can call this restoration complete. Here she is, so what do you think? She is built as a runner, and not a show bike. I was not concerned with keeping this bike original, so the purists will probably not like this. Non original parts are: RG3
