Freebie barn finds

Recommended Posts

scored some old XR rollers, no engines unfortunately. The 200r barely has any boot rub wear through the powder coat. Don't know too much about these old things but after a few hours on google looks like the 200 is pretty much unchanged from 83? until 2002 so parts should be easy to find. Any suggestions what to do? Thinking about putting the 200 together for a little putt-around/toy

The 200 looks to be the 84/85 model. If so the 2 valve motor doesn't fit.

Correct,   but an xr250 engine does,  and may be easier to find. I know I have enough scraps to build two of those.  The xr500 forks will go on pretty easily and make things better.   Different siding and surroundings,  but the boneyard xr's make it look a lot like my house.  I would like to buy the carbs off the xr500 though if you will take 60 including the throttle and cables.  make you profitable right off the bat 2T.

Different motor mounts? I see the RFVC 4 valve bikes but didn't figure the mounts would be different

I'll have a look when I pick up the bikes, won't be for a few weeks.

Do what you like but you have some valuable parts.
The Headlight - Number plates will each sell for $100+
Tail Lights $50 each
Side Number Plates $50+
Dual carbs off the 200 - $150+
Wheels $50 to $200 each
If the shocks are good $100+ each
Forks $100+ each
The rectangle shaped Speedometer on the 200 - $200 if its good
Mufflers $75+
Each Seat $50 + for sure
Gas Tanks $50 - $100 each
You easily have $1000 there

We've parted out hundreds of bikes, we send parts to every state an many countries.
Its truly amazing what some parts sell for.

Here is some info that will help you identify the chassis.
The tenth digit of the VIN (on right side of steering head) is the model year code:

Z = 1979
A = 1980
B = 1981
C = 1982
D = 1983
E = 1984
F = 1985
G = 1986
H = 1987

The fourth thru seventh positions  of the VIN is the Honda Model Code.
The first position denotes capacity; with A (50cc to 79cc), H (80cc to 124cc), J (125cc to 149cc), K (150cc to 184cc), L (185cc to 199cc), M (200cc to 349cc), N (350cc to 449cc), P (450cc to 649cc), R (650cc to 899cc) and S (for 900cc and up).
The second position is a letter that denotes the type of motorcycle. For example: "C" is a street motorcycle, "D" appears to be a dual-sport, "E" is an Enduro (or perhaps an off-road model) and "F" is a scooter.
The next two numbers are the sequence of design.


Some model codes from the 80s, the letter suffixes are the year codes from the above table:

MD01  XL 250 SB
MD02  XL 185 SB-D (USA / Kanada)
MD03  XL 250 RC-D
MD06  XL 200 RD-E
MD11  XL 250 RE-H
MD22  XR 250 LM-P / XLR 250 R (Japan) / XLR 250 Baja (Japan)
ME01  XR 250 Z-A / RB-D
ME02  XR 185 Z / XR 200 RB-E
ME04  XR 200 RB-D
ME05  XR 200 RE-J + L-P
ME06  XR 250 RE-P
ME08  XR 250 RT
ND01  XL 400 R
ND03  XL 350 RE-H
NE01  XR 350 RD-F
NE02  XR 350RF-G
NE03  XR 400 R
PD01  XL 500 SZ-B
PD02  XL 500 RC
PD03  XL 600 RD-H
PD04  XL 600 LMF + H / RMG-H
PD06  XL 600 VK-T Transalp
PD10  XL 600 VVTransalp
PE01  XR 500 Z-A / RB-E
PE03  XR 500 RD-E
PE04  XR 600 RF-T
RD01  XLV 750 RD-E
RD06  XR 650 LP-T

I second that, you are sitting on a small gold mine of parts or you have a ton of cash you need to sink into your bikes to make them whole. Either way, it's a nice position to be I. Especially if you have the time and the room. Keep us posted on what happens to those rollers. I love stories like this.
