They seem to becoming the most desireable and pricey out of the old 2st , so why is that?
Is it due to the owners thinking they are worth more than they actually are, or is there some substance to back it up

Feel free to post pics of yours, to me there're one of the best lookers out there

I think it has to do with the Quality of the bikes, the fact that Mcgrath and RC rode them, and the overall aura of it being a Honda.

I'm searching high and low for a nice '94-'96 right now. Miss the old iron.

I had an 05 that I sold when I bought my 17 C450 and wish I'd kept it. I didn't get what I thought it was worth and it was a clean unhammered bike. What people are asking is not what they are getting.

Bought an 03 a few years ago as a winter project started to fix it up then it’s been sitting in my basement ever since. Curious to know what I could get for it since I see some in way worse shape going for decent money these days. Photo

Got an '02 250 we're fixing up for a magazine right now. Just got the case welded up, and dropped the motor off with our tuner for some porting and what not...

it's a weird phenomenon, but it's most easily described as "slow is the new black"

My 04 Cr125, still waiting on my graphics done by 180 decals. I’m going to get a new rmz450 soon but I think I’ll hold onto this one.

I wish I'd never sold my 05 CR250.... I had a little head work done and it was WAY faster than my YZ250. The CR is the best bike I've ever owned... I'm getting rid of the YZ because I just have never gelled with it like I did the CR and am in the market for an 05-06-07....

Had a 2017 450RX and sold it since I found myself gravitating to the old ‘93 250 when it was time to ride. These bikes are so fun. Light, nimble, powerful. Here’s how it looks now...but I have the new ‘95 Team Honda kit from Throttle Jockey and a “new” wheel set from Privateer Connection (powder coated original hubs with new Excel rims) ready to be installed.

The fact the 92 to 01 had basically the same engine

I have a 93 and 94 complete and working on another 94 as a honda of troy replica. I enjoy going to the track and spanking people on old technology. Suspension is way less forgiving but there still lots of fun. Photo

With modern suspension and offset that are incredible. I think I’ll do a 250 to go with my 125

They have aged very gracefully.

The '02+ CR250 was savaged somewhat unfairly in its time. It has been proven to have as much potential (with some work) as any 2-stroke since. It remains very modern in its components and even in looks.

If you think a clean example commands a premium price now, I predict you will be very surprised in the years ahead.

As a series, the CRs were by a huge margin the most popular bikes for decades. For most people not still in high school, they were the epitome of motocross.

My ‘02.
FC suspension, TMR porting/head, 05 crank, Keihin PWK. Bunch of other little stuff.

I bought a 2003 for $1,200 in 2011. Gave it a refresh last year including a 2007 engine.

Yup. To your point.. In the link below is an 02 with just a dep pipe & suspension work. No engine mods were done & in this race @ a higher pro level it had no problems going against modern 2017 ktm's & huskies. The 02-07 models were severely underrated.

Agree. Had an 04 YZ250 with PC engine mods as well as an 03 CR250r. Comparing apples to apples the YZ didn't have anything for the CR from mid-top / overrev. In my case I sold the YZ & still own the CR 14 yrs, later.

My first big race bike was the '86 CR125- I remember it as a magic bike. The handling and power were freaking amazing for the time, and probably still pretty smooth even by today's standards.
Honda at the time had the best fit and finish and power with some decent suspension (after Race Tech). I had the 89, 90 and 91 CR125s and they were awesome. Put on a PC pipe and you had a high-revving peaky berm blaster. My CRs had light switch power and a bit twitchy on the front end, but overall great bikes.
I rode the '92 CR250 a lot and it was in the same tradition. I'm kinda sad the CRs went away.

Gracefully indeed! Love my 07' small-bore project.

I have a 96 restor I'm doing and have probably $4,000 into it + the cost of the bike I paid. I asked $2,000 and got no takers....
