Need to thin the herd. Haven't ridden this one much in the last year so might as well let someone else put it to use.

Up for sale is my 2003 Honda CR250R outfitted with the engine from a 2001 Honda CR250R (older style engine). This bike makes the best of both worlds of the later model CR250. It has the fantastic engine of the earlier model, with the fantastic handling of the 3rd generation chassis. The case reed engine is not a bad engine by any means, and with a little work can be very good. But, I had a catastrophic engine failure on the 2003 and had just rebuilt the 2001 engine with a plan to sell.

Also have the rolling chassis from the 2001, most engine parts on the 2003 (needs a crank), and lots of spare parts for both bikes. Both the 2001 and 2003 have clear titles in my name.

Will add additional details on the bike and list out all of the parts very soon. Please reply or DM me if you are interested. Not interested in separating at this time.

Dog not included.
