New Addition to the shed 1992 WR250
« on: January 21, 2019, 03:37:42 PM »
You always hear of everybody else getting the good deals, but i think i have struck gold with my latest purchase.
Frame has fresh paint, rear shock has just had full service,NOS sidecovers and rear fender, all linkage bearings replaced.
Engine has low compression, but was running fine when the bike was put away for a resto. Not sure what size the bore is, but am hoping its standard.
last owner has had it for 21 years.
And how much do you ask??  $500.00 :o ;D ;D ;D






Cheers,
Steve.

Cheers Bruce,
Yep it a good one.
Im off saving the world atm, but hope to get stuck in when i get home.
Please educate me on piston sizes, what the colours mean, iv'e never owned a bike with a nikasil bore so am not familiar with what to do regarding clearances etc etc.
Suppose a good start would be grab myself a manual, prob explains it all in there.
I'm going to fabricate a side stand, matching a oem one, so could make a bunch if anyone is interested.
Warning:Expect delivery 1-2 years from now! ;D
Cheers,
Steve.

   Congratulations on your new toy from here as well Steve! I can't believe you got yourself a bike with disc brakes on both ends.... and a Nicasil bore... what's this world heading to? Nah, I'm just kidding. I can't wait to see what this baby will look like when you're finished with it. If you ran out of love for it, as I told you on messenger, I'll find a way to get it off your hands and into mine! I still have that money............  ;D
