Bike of the Month - September 2003
1974 CR250M Elsinore
Blake Addison



I built this bike over the past 8 Months or so from a collection of parts. Some E-bay finds, some right here from this site and Scott at Red racer. The motor was re-built for me by Bill and Scott at Cyclestop in Ca. There are lots of other people that had to do with the completion of this project and I think it is pretty amazing that you came build a 30 year old bike from a collection of parts accumulated over a relatively short period of time.


Performance wise it has A DG gold head, 1St. over Weisco, piston PVL ignition, 36mm Mikuni carb, Pro form exhaust, Works alum. body rear shocks and a DG replica swing arm from the guys at Cyclestop. This has been a real kick in the pants to do despite my limited mechanical ability.
