Customer at the shop said something about a '96 CR250 he was wanting to sell, for $1500. I had to take it. Have been wanting one since '96 when MC did his thing. I am pretty stoked. It's just such an iconic machine, plus has a hydraulic clutch but that's gonna go bc she slips a bit. Still stoked!

I have no idea these were the original owners pics, I threw her in the living room (duh) and headed out for the Fight.

Are the rear shocks just "springy" from those years? I'm thinking she needs to be rebuilt

I endorse this impulse buy! Great price for "the bike that McGrath made famous". Just needs the '93 chassis now smile

Positively, absolutely 110% obsessed with anything MOTO.

Service the shock. Springy isn't part of the OEM spec.

Jeremy called.

He wants his bike back.

Now!

Nobody ever told me, I found out for myself. You've got to believe in foolish miracles. It's not how you play the game, it's if you win or lose. You can choose. Don't confuse. Win or lose. It's up to you!
