Picked this 250 up, "almost complete"Photo
First thing to fix was a crack in the water jacket

Next up, fresh powder on the frame

Lots of cleaning later. (As well as all new bearings in the swingarm, shock, linkage pivots both wheels, steering)
Lots of cleaning on the plastic.

More pics to come.
Other things that I've run into are both rims were cracked and dented.
The front caliper had wooden dowels in place of the pistons.
The newest wall that I've run into is the pipe that came with the bike isn't correct, so now I'm looking for a replacement.

Looks like a worthy project. Some of these bikes just get hammered and left for dead. Nice to see them resurrected. Got to love stuff like a wooden caliper piston. Great bike. Keep us posted on the progress.
