thinking about embarking on a cr250 restoration project, but need some info. I want to go with a 1986 look. What year plastics & frames are interchangeable with the 1986. My main concern is that I want to stick with the orange/red plastics. What year did this color start and what year did it end. Will frames from later years interchange? I see in some pics that a 1987 is when the started rear disk brakes, so maybe that is the year I should be looking for at least framewise. I have located a rolling chassis for a 1988 really cheap and need to know if the 86 plastics will bolt up readily. My restoration project is not going for a true OEM. This is a project for my own gratification, so i dont mind taking the better qualities of several years and intermingling. My main goal is for the orangish-red with blue trim of the 1986.
