I raced a brand new '78 CR250 for the Honda importer in the Philippines when I was stationed there while in the USAF. I have no lost love for the bike other than they were by far the coolest looking bike out there at the time. I also raced a new RC125

'83 CR ......if I remember correctly, it's a UFO. I didn't like the original fender........too floppy, especially if mud was involved. The front forks/clamps are CR480 with custom machine work by a friend of mine.

Buy a known good motor and proceed with your build. Keep what ever parts you may need for spares, sell the remaining stuff on ebay to recoup your hundred bucks. Consider yourself lucky this

Had Millenium Technologies re-plate the steel liner on my '84 Yamaha YZ 250. I wasn't comfortable with putting a liner in it, so I had the plating done. They did fantastic work, bike runs great. Here's a couple of shots so you can see the result.
