Looking great. I bought my ticket. If there are 99 more left I should just buy them all. That bike would be worth the $10,000.00 no doubt. It’s that serious of a restore. As for the front brake line routing. Man I didn’t realize how much more involved

Aaron I received the brackets today. Thank you. So I am half way there. Where do I obtain the sleeves? Thanks.

That's generous of you my friend. I look at builds by guys like Aaron doing that raffle Doug Henry build and realize just how far I need to grow in my efforts. Those guys doing the MiG and Tig to clean up damage is amazing much less throwing fork uppers ... more »

Brakes, silencer and clean up of electrical... Brakes. Certainly not as hard as one might think.Completely rebuilding them is in-expensive. Just maintaining them a little is easy. The condition that I have found all the calipers in that I have is evidence

Swingarm and wheels. So far I haven’t been too intimidated by the condition of a swingarm prior to beginning to clean it up. I wish I had the patience to just use hand power to get the perfect finish. I can appreciate those who make the effort to get

Aaron if you had something promoting this raffle with the specific info on how to take part that was basically a copy and paste it would make it easier to get the word out. Maybe one before shot and several images showing key components restored. I would ... more »

Brother I sent you a message expressing interest in a set of those replica HRC lower slider guards. Do you still have a set available?

Above Cayucos was a popular place but the city must have closed it off several years ago. If you have a dual purpose there is some roads to check out behind that nearby reservoir. Outside this I would think Paso would have some areas. There used to be ... more »

Added reply in a thread 86 Honda CR250 full rebuild 3/12/2021 9:09 PM

I’m doing a full restore on a 86 currently. Yours is obviously a super sweet build. Putting together the HPP valves was no joke. I bought it with the motor already disassembled. Having dealt with the mid 90s power valve systems this 86 is possibly 3 ... more »

BTW- That is indeed an excellent project bike to undertake. I think it is indeed worse than the 92 250 I started with. Fortunately if you have the time/ability/monies it can be restored. I haven't found a part I couldn't source from somewhere. The radiator ... more »

I would be looking in the many Facbook dedicated pages to Honda CRs. There are several where parts/motors come up for sale routinely. Have a good idea of what shipping would be to France from the US. I would sell you a motor if I had one as long as you ... more »

Brother I just took some to a local place here in Fresno Ca. It normally costs like for a 5 gallon full bucket $80.00. So the price doesn’t change if you have less. I am not sure why you’re having difficulty finding someone to do a small batch. I would ... more »

Rebuild the shock. The 95 I just used the 3M wheels to clean up the aluminum. For this 92 I went ahead and sprayed it in Cerakote. If you do this make sure to tape off the insides. You want no over spray getting inside where the seals are. I was careless

Yes the recessed valves and that no loss fill valve is extremely difficult to use. I will try and create a tool to make it easier to screw it on. Great suggestions being offered. I asked about the small tank and doing 160 pound fills and was discouraged ... more »

I recently got set up to refill shocks. The smallest tank wouldn’t have much volume except for maybe a few refills. Which may be okay for you. I bought one tank larger than the smallest. Even that ran around $130.00. But refills are now around $30 I ... more »
