Which year CR250 frame?

Recommended Posts


Bought a CR250 (1991) few months ago and now restoring it. I started to wonder is the frame also '91 because the VIN number seems strange to me.

Here it is (starts and ends with [X]:

ME03-230**** (I conceal the last four digits :busted: )

If looking this chart, the bike should be 1980 :busted: Which is impossible...


The VIN number seems too short even it has every letter and number left (or so I assume because the number starts and ends with that "boxed" X)

The engine is '91 for sure. Is it replacement frame or what? Fake number? The bike has been earlier in enduro use.
