for me it looks like model 90, becuase of plastics.

 

thanks

Take the VIN number off the frame. Punch it into any online VIN decoder (it's free). The year, make, model will be displayed...

It definitely is NOT a '97...

It looks like a 90-91. The tank & rad shrouds are unique to that era. The grey colored airbox was too. When it comes to advertising used bikes what's 5-7 years....?

It is definitely early 90's.

Another two things that give it away are:

1) the older HPP valve on the cylinder

2) the black plug on the swing arm to access the linkage.

Not sure what the guy was buying for a 97. Even the rear rim is an 18"!

I have a 90 cr250 and the plastics are the same so I'd say it's a 90 and the bike actually doesn't look that bad depending on what he's asking I'd scoop it up

Sometimes people just honestly don't know the year bike they have
