Hello,

 

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 im 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.

 

Frame is complete powder coated

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

NOS cylinder, piston and head

Forks, yokes, front wheel and twin leeding brake from 1982 CR250R

Forks totaly rebuild and powdercoated

All new cables from venhill

New pirelli tyres

Oehlins shocks almost new , base where ITC and rebuilt to the 150mm that they work with the Honda

All new plastic from VMX

Hope you love the bike. I love it!
