Here is my 1996 CR250 project I completed last winter. I have always wanted a '96 CR250 since the day they came out, I just never did anything about it until now! It was a total impulse buy as I was browsing craigslist one day. I called the owner and drove 45 miles to his house to check the bike out. He was asking $1,500. It was in decent shape, but still needed lots of TLC. He was the 2nd owner and didnt know much about the bike. The original owner knew what he was doing because it had a good amount of nice aftermarket parts on it. After a thorough inspection, I told him the most I would pay for it was $1,000 dollars. He thought it over for a minute and finally agreed to my offer. I loaded it into the truck and headed home! Here is what I got for $1,000. I couldnt use the riding gear but I took it anyway since he did not want any of it. I rode it around the yard for 30 minutes to see what the bike felt like and then I snapped some pictures before I disassembled the bike. Next up, disassembly!
