Bike of the Month - November 2013
1982 Honda CR250R

Kamiel Segers

Antwerp, Belgium





I bought this bike out of nostalgia because I rode on this bike in 1983. I am a mechanic so it is not a problem for me to build the bike from scratch. I replaced every part that showed some wear by new parts.


The mechanical parts I got from Honda dealers and what they had got left on their shelves. I ordered the plastic and stickers from VMX Service in the Netherlands.

I used the waterpumpcover from 1981 because this wasn't from Magnesium, the one from 1982 is made in magnesium and has the intention to rot.

I am not planning on riding this bike, for me it's a collector's item.
