Looks cracking that. I would love one of them. I had an old DT 250 trail bike when I was at college once. Bought it for the summer for £150 and went all over on it. First day back at college it got nicked.
I thought I would share this as there are lots of bikers on here. I've just restored my oldish and previously very battered (1999) Honda CRM250 ready for the IOM classic TT later in the year. I'm meeting up with a few friends to watch the racing and we will also explore the wonderful off road trails in the Island. I'm sure the bike won't be looking as good afterwards but the poor thing needed a bit of loving care to be sure it wouldn't let me down. It seemed a shame not to make it look pretty as the same time. It feels a lot more spritely now the engine is back to A1 condition and now starts easily Being a good old fashioned 2 stroke it is light, has 40 bhp and is tuned for bottom and midrange grunt so is a blast on (and off) the road.
A proper smoker. Grew up on motocross bikes mostly YZs. Tyres would be the only thing I would change on your bike and maybe an FMF pipe. 👍
That looks lovely. I plan to be at the Classic tt too, so will look you for you on it.
Sweet looking bike that ,youíve done a great job bringing it back. I was going to re live my youth not long ago until I saw the price of XT 500ís I paid £350 for my 1978 version in 1983!!
Youíve Don it proud looks the biz I loved my old suzi Rm250s the noise going through the gears powerbands
Makes me want to trawl ebay.
Wouldn't mind going to that, I've just looked at a ferry to IOM, How much are you paying , it looks extortionate!
in the boot
