Bike of the Month - May 2010
I bought it last year from a friend trying to race the bike in german and european vintage racing. My last ride on a twinshock bike was just twenty years ago and now i´m 34 years old and i decided thats time to going with the old stuff.
It was a nearly original bike when I bought the bike. It is a 1978 CR250R with a production date of 01/78. it was imported from California to England and from there to Germany. My first ride with the bike impressed me that much that i decided to rebuild the bike in winter with the following parts.

New Excel rims original spokes and hubs
New seat foam and cover
Renthal Twinwall handlebar PFR footpegs and swingarm
Complete rebuilt engine with powdercoated casing
