CR 250 1992 Project-What should I look out for?

Hi,

 

Just took in a project CR 250 1992 in pretty bad shape off a friend, here is a pic!.IMG-20140724-00270 - Copy.jpg

 

Posting pics on the Journey. What are these bikes like? What are the main faults etc?

 

Ben.

The problems with that bike where most common are cracked frame and or swing arms, the frames used to crack around the swing arm mounts and the swing arm would crack the weld area where the arm is welded to the cast section. Early models also had a recall on the shift star there was some problems with them cracking and they'd not shift right. Other then that it was a pretty solid bike.

Yep, big improvement from 93 on.

Ok, probably better if I strip the frame right down and repaint. Thanks for the reply.

 

Ben.
