I used I believe 5.5mm tube. Got the pink Suzuki tubing for the carb and breather off of eBay and it looks like it should be good. Yes, original was clear but I’m rolling with it.

Looks real good Mike! You found a nice original bike and with all of the trick parts you are adding it is going to be hot.

Not sure on that one Mike, one of the other guys probably knows.

Sounds good Mike, and your bike will be awesome! I left all of my motor mounts and aluminum air box and seat brackets raw. I would like to get the three pipe mounts from PDE. You went big with the titanium spindles and al, of the other goodies, will ... more »

Mike, If you are looking for any motor mounts or aluminum parts, the guy on eBay is back selling stuff again, search Honda Elsinore. That is where I got all of my motor mounts and brake stay arm.

Mike, I used this I got off of the Thor-Lawson website, don't know if it came from Fox or someone else made it. I used a dremel to make it nice and smooth, just kind of dished it out.

I was stupid and didn’t save any of my old gear, got new stuff every year back then. I have been kicking myself for the last ten years about it and have been trying to find stuff on eBay. Got some nice Trim leathers two years ago. Have some Hondaline ... more »

Thanks Mike! You have a great bike though and everything was there and in good shape. Mine won’t look like that after the first ride. You have been getting all of the goodies from Holy and PDE for yours! What kind of leathers were those in the picture? ... more »

Joe, just saw the other question. I gave that to him, it is off a AH-64 Apache, one of two I got when I retired from the Army. Still flying them now as a contractor doing basically the same job as I did active duty.

That was a nice find on the swingarm Mike, even though it is for a 125, will make someones bike super trick., I can't believe Newmann hasn't snatched it up for a future build project!

Thanks Mike, The '75 CR250 is a really nice looking bike! I couldn't believe when I found him the NOS tank on eBay. All of the plastic is VMX. I wouldn't mind having it but I bought the '73 CR250. Joe, Here is a picture of the GTO and Aston Martin.
