What's up guys/ girls

Wanted to drop in and let the fine people at Vital know what I've got cooking right now with this CR250R.

I have wanted to do a build / giveaway forever & now it's going down! Very exciting & a ton of fun.

After seeing & participating in a Bay Chapter OTHG CRF450R raffle earlier this year, I decided to launch my own bike build & giveaway in the same fashion.

My buddy Justin actually ended up winning the CRF450R and I've never seen such a priceless look on someones face/ disbelief & I've never herd his wife scream so damn loud- before, or since!


Here's a little more info regarding the bike build...

The Bike:

-2002 CR250R, frame up resto. Highly customized & fully rebuilt. No stone un-turned.

I'm currently in the mid build stages and have about 1.5 months left or so before I select & announce a winner. I've also been doing a ton of fun giveaways via the @mXrevival Instagram page along the way.

Top end kits, handmade seats, graphics kits, plastic kits, custom Cerakote, mXrevival hats, now goggles are upcoming from Flowvision in the coming weeks & a full engine rebuild kit is on deck too.

Just fun, all free, no catch... Did I mention I am psychotic about motorcycles? No? Oh, well.... there it is


The Sponsors that have joined & have already been announced publicly are:

-Boyesen (Rad Valve, covers, exh flange)
-Bolt Motorcycle Hardware (pro pack, body fasteners, axle adjusters, etc)
-SM Pro Platinum (Trick & light wheel set)
-Lectron Fuel Systems (38HV Carb)

Not yet showcased/ upcoming product announcements are:

More to come!!!

You're all welcome to check out the first round of mentions by way of photos, on Instagram. All the build photos are there, in nice high res photos. Before & afters, etc...

I'd also love to hear your thoughts, and would be happy to answer any questions that you may have.

There's something happening here, what it is ain't exactly clear.

Thanks Ledger!

Years ago, I remember watching this kid push his old KX125 to the track (408MX RIP) from some busted houses nearby. He'd ride until his bike broke then push it back home.

Always though "man I want to hook him up, that's impressive" so I guess, this build is a bit of finally getting to do it for someone.

Thanks for the kind words.

Hey Charles,
I can't commend you & the sponsors enough on this very, very awesome project. Hopefully someone who is in need of a bike wins it.
It's a shame that 408MX is closed as it was about 10-15 minutes from my house.
Have 4 of these 3rd gen AF CR250's with some extra parts that I can donate to a good cause like this. Send me a PM if you need parts. I might have it as a spare.

I don't understand the raffle. You say that I can enter for free but on the raffle page it say's tickets are $100.00. So if I buy a $100.00 ticket someone that enters for free can win the bike or is the winner a person that buys a $100 ticket?

That is too cool!

I appreciate that greatly. Hoping the same thing! Thanks for the kind words. It's been such a good time doing this and building up relations with some of the guys I really admire in the industry.

Man I miss 408 so much.... Club & Diablo have been great for the most part at least. Do you ever get out to those tracks now?

Let me know if you do.. In fact, we will be at Diablo this Saturday.

Haha!

That's too funny. Right? Considering how badly he wants a Honda 2 stroke...

WHERE YOU AT GIN GIN?

I noticed he doesn't even have a bike in one of the latest Vital photos.... Looks to be in the riding position though silly

I haven't been to either of those tracks in a while & need to make the trip out that way. Have Christmas stuff going on with the wife & family this weekend. Hoping to do some cardio laps on Sat. morning for about a 1/2 hr at the Metcalf tracks. It's convenient since it's about a 20 minutes drive. Enjoy your ride !

Where was you able to get the VHM head? I couldn't find them when I was looking

This one was supplied straight from VHM Netherlands for the project BUT, I am also a dealer.

I can be reached via contact link any time on the mXrevival website.

They are on backorder once in a while but still in production.

Or, you could just explain here that there's nothing free about it....

"I have wanted to do a build / giveaway forever & now it's going down! Very exciting & a ton of fun."

"Just fun, all free, no catch... "

So is it a giveaway/free or not?

You are fabricating your own version & twisting verbage up between the "giveaway" of fun & free moto parts VS the actual "raffle".

Read more slowly. It will give you a fighting chance at being right.

I created this post to share something fun & special with guys who ride & love bikes on a similar level.

They take a lot of time, planning, energy, funding, and in some cases the perfect circumstance to pull off.

If you cannot take the time to review the contest verbage, on your own and come at me with just a little more tact, then please know you've not earned enough of my respect to warrant the answers you seek to forcefully pry from me.

It's unfortunate that there are some guys so jaded that I cannot share this with them the way it was intended to be shared.

The answers are literally right in your hands.

To everyone else with positive feedback & those excited about this gig... This is for you. Means a ton to me.

Be safe on your motos this weekend guys!

-Charles

Charles,
To be fair... I copy/pasted this from your first post-

“I'd also love to hear your thoughts, and would be happy to answer any questions that you may have”.

I realize that MxRacerCam didn’t just ask a question, but you could have just answered the question, without all the extra verbiage. It was a little confusing if you don’t follow social media and just read your post. Just sayin’... wink

Congrats on what you’re doing, sounds like a lot of work on your part.

I got this:

"You may enter this raffle without a purchase or donation. A purchase or donation will not increase your odds of winning. To obtain a free entry, send in a postcard or letter with your contact information to: mXrevival , mXrevival's 2002 Honda CR250R Bike Build & Giveaway #ProjectGunShow - "AME" , 1177 North Linder Rd. #139, Kuna, Idaho 83634. Requests for mail-in entries must be received prior to the drawing on February 1, 2019. Stated ticket limits apply equally to purchased tickets and mail-in entries."

Not sure how difficult it was to just share that as the answer instead of being a jerk about it.

You know what, you're right 100%.

I get frustrated when people try to forcefully pry what they want to hear out of others for momentary satisfaction. I'll stand my ground on that. But, overkill on my end yes.

Thanks for leveling me out. My stubborn side got the best of me.

As for the work, I love it to death so it never feels like work.

I hope from here on out it can be enjoyed by others too.

Thanks for the reply!

It's cool. I'm more of an asshole than a jerk. But we all have off days.

Good luck with your contest!
