1985 XR250R Rebuild

Recommended Posts

As the title states, we are "restoring" a one-owner 1985 XR250R. My best friend's father bought this bike back in college and has owned it ever since. It has been sitting for a bout 7-8 years.

The plan is to fix her up and get it running again for our trip to Colorado. So I come to Thumpertalk to research what others have done and mods. :smirk:

Any comments or recommendations appreciated! :smirk:

Here she is:
