Finally got my ‘73 CR250 home, along with the MR50! I am officially out of room in the garage. Maybe when I finish the ‘79 CR250 I may look for a 78 RM250 C2 and put the aluminum tank on it or an RM370. Need to find a stock throttle for the ‘73 and eventually fully restore it. So, as I sit now I have a ‘74 MR50, ‘78 XR75, ‘80 CR125, ‘73 CR250, ‘79 CR250, ‘14 BMW R1200RT, ‘16 BMW R1200 GSA. Pretty Happy!

Nice collection! The 73 Cr is beautiful ....is it all original? The first bike I ever restored was this model...They were before my time but I still had a poster on my bedroom wall of that bike when I was a kid...

Nice looking bike, what's the story on it? Was it one from the collector who passed away last year?

Joe,

Yes it was from my friend's collection that passed away. The bike was built by someone else and raced a few times before he bought it. It had an aftermarket pipe, newer works performance shocks ( I believe that is the brand) that I still have , and a '74 painted tank. when my friend bought it he wanted it to be original like he had new. I found him the stock shocks, pipe and silencer, and a tank. Overall it is in really nice shape and I will freshen it up some in the near future. Have to find a stock throttle and cable for it. He never put gas in it but I really want to hear it run.

I'm sure I have an original throttle housing for that. I think the 125 and 250 shared the same part. Dan at www.re-mx.com has throttle tubes and new cables. Not sure how exact his cables are compared to NOS but if you have a OEM number I can look through some of my junk to see if there may be one hanging around. Guessing Motion Pro may make his???

You need an original off/on kill switch for that??

Thanks Joe, I saw that re-mx has the cable and tube but not the housing. I an original kill switch would be nice to have.

The 73 CR250 looks to be in great condition, Paul. It is a collector bike high on my list! They were quite something for their time.

You might want to check with my old sponsor in Alabama for early CR250 parts.

They have been in the Honda business since 1964 or so and in the same location.

No telling what they have in the parts room. God knows I broke enough CR 125/250 stuff between 1973-77 that they may have ordered it in as backup.

Will you ride her Paul?.. at least up and down the street a few times?

Mike, I do what to at least ride it up and down the street every once in a while. Will burn some Maxima 927 to get that old Castrol R smell.
