Hello all, making this forum to keep track of/ share my progress on my winter project here. Bike is a running, driving, titled 1984 XL250R I picked up for $700. The suspension both front and rear are shot, the drum brakes are beyond terrible and the carbs are in need of attention but it still starts and idles on full choke lol. After much research on what I could do to help the suspension, brakes and overall looks I found that the front and rear suspension off of a 90 CR125/250 would be an almost direct bolt on aside from some bearing sizing issues and bushing issues with the rear swing arm. Haven't had time to confirm either yet so we will see how that goes. Here is a few before pics of the XL.
