Trophy Bike!

Recommended Posts

I couldn't wait for my suspension to get done before taking a pic, so I put the wheels and chain (I know... way to tight and I forgot to remove the chain spec sticker) on and snapped this pic real quick earlier this evening.

My 250 w/ about 1 minute of riding time:

I'll do pics more when I get it's big brother done here in another week or so. I have to admit the Hondas and their al frames are sweet.

The bling list is the exact same as the 450:

RAD/Excel hubs/rims

Fastway F3 pegs

RG3 upper/lower

ASV C5 levers

Flexx bars

SDG seat

Thunder Alley lowboy pipe

Ironman 13/52

DID ERT

Dying to get her dirty, but I ain't got her sprung and valved for me, so off the forks and shock come this weekend.

Man them are sweet!!

Could you get a close up of the hub? Do they have a greese zerk in them?

And if they do, Have you noticed the bearings lasting any longer in the RAD hex hubs, compared to a stock hub, beings how you can greese them often.?

Damn, that definitely looks sweet! Give us some info. on the rims/hubs, like how much you paid for them and what kind of hubs they are.

And loosen that chain up! :cry:

They do have zerks in each hub and I grease 'em (on my 450) all the time; haven't even riden the 250 yet, but I'll grease them this weekend. It's a pretty sweet deal, just stick the 'ole grease gun on and start squeez'n - even w/ the wheel on the bike.

I've never had to replace a bearing, on any bike (the 450 was my first bike) so I can't say how these bearing stack up against stock. :cry:

Shifter, I must say that the bike is beautiful. I think you did it right. It isn't crazy- its clean looking. Enjoy it! :cry:

Yeah... it ain't write'n checks I can't cash! :cry:

I acutally have number graphics that have a black background w/ white numbers instead of white like what's shown. When I ordered 'em, I didn't see that they had the black backgrounds for the CRF250. I got the white ones and the next day figured I'd look at their site again and sure as snot there were black backgrounds w/ white numbers.

I just don't have the heart to rip the white ones off! :cry:

Shifter that pipe looks nice on there. It doesn't look like it sticks out to far past the number plate. I have been taking my time looking for a nice pipe and I emailed Bob Murray about the Thunder Alley. How does it perform- snap, sound? You'll have to post a pick from the other side. :cry:

I actually took one of the right side, but it was blurry.

The pipe sounds great. I haven't worked the bike out yet, but I'm sure w/ the lowboy pipe and the extra tooth on the rear it's gonna have a considerable impact. I was pretty surprised with stock performance and I think these two mods will add to that nicely - and I'll be run'n U4 too.

I'll take some better pics this afternoon. I was just dying to see the final look of the bike yesterday so in haste I took that shot. I'll get something better later today.

Sweet Ride, its like a high class ho your pimpin'!

With all the 'armor' i put on mine it looks more like a tank than a bike.

Very well done. A number of my employee's/co-workers saw it as I was checking it out and commented on it, (all good). Even a hardened KTM rider, great work once again.
