Ok, so I collect, among many things, MX/SX toys/models/replicas. I've had this very well made 1/6 scale KX250 for ages but just found a cat who does graphics for models and toys. So I was thinking of trying to somewhat replicate a factory bike out of this very cool toy. My question is this. What bike resembles what I have here the most? I'm leaning towards doing a Jeff Emig 1999 replica out of it as the shroud graphics are very close and the body styling looks about right.

Here's pic of bike and Fro's 99 SR250 as well. Or is it more similar to RC's SR250? Just looking thoughts on this before I get the guy to do the graphics. He's all in and doing it for free for fun to see how close he can get it.

If I do the Emig 99 bike I can't see redoing the shroud look as it is very similar. But probably anything else I would have to as they seem to all have the Chevy logo. Just messing around with it and seeking opinions.

I went all out on graphics years ago! laughing Would be cool to get the pipe off it too and work some magic on it somehow. Photo

So what do you boys think this would look best as? Not going to leave it stock. Thinking Fro 99 or RC but would have to redo shrouds if go RC.

1 side Fro.
1 side RC.

Problem solved.

You can only see one side at a time anyways lol.

Personally, I'd go with the Chevy Kawi. Always loved those bikes.

1 vote for RC, the chevy emblem always looked good on the green bike's.

Mav can you dig up a pic of just RC's graphics and numbers from that bike? Just a smaller, somewhat Hi res pic of numbers and graphics? I figure if anyone can, you can.
