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!

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.
