should i buy a 86 xr250

Recommended Posts

Hey guys i finished my 81 xl125 project for the most part. I saw an add a picture fir a 86 xr250. The guy wants 50 bucks for it. The top end is gone. But the bike looks decent except itsmissng the side panels and the top end like i said. I was wondering what you guys thought about buying and fixing it up. Would it be worth it and would it cost a lot to do so?

Whenever I buy something I make sure if I can't get it running I can at least get my money back out of it. $50 is a pretty safe bet on that bike. Keep an eye on Craigslist you might be able to find parts (or even a complete motor) fairly cheap. 🙂

I just bought a 88 250r and it needs a new piston/ bore job for 200 and I'm very happy with the deal. The bike is almost 100 percent stock and all there, clean .

Just have to be patient to find a reasonable useable top end. Im in the midst of a similar project with a 96. Took me bout 6 months to find a good complete head for bout $250. Modt good ones go for $400-500 on ebay
