Hey all,

Was out riding my CR and a Yamaha rider came over to talk to me about my bike.

Its a 1996 CR 250, He told me I should park in a museum or something cause

it a Jeremy Macgrath style CR250 "the 1969 Camaro of bikes" he said.

Its NOT one of Jeremys bikes it just looks like his.

To me the bike was meant to be ridin and jumped and raced

even though its "old"

what do you guys think?

I think the one you would want is the 1993 anyways...thats the one he raced for multiple years because he thought it was better correct? ride that thing, its not worth much, but as far as fun, its off the scales.

Maybe someday it will be worth something? A 1974 CR250 that I owned and raced is now sitting in a museum collection. Looks exactly like it did last time I raced it. The only thing they did to it was put period correct handle bars on it. Everything else was original.

I don't think these years of CR's will be worth anything in the future. I loved my 96 and just sold a 95 I had for a friend to ride but I just can't see it being worth saving for a historical value for decades later. I could be wrong though.:lol:

You can get that kind of reaction with lots of dirt bikes because most bikes from the mid-1990s have been "retired".

If I were to buy and restore a 1982 Yamaha IT-175J (one of my personal faves from back then) and take it out on the local trail loop, anybody who saw me on the bike that was riding back then would have an instant nostalgia trip and be all over it with compiments.

Personally, I've never gone the museum piece route and have ridden and used all of the bikes I've owned, even the ones that were supposedly going to be "collectable some day...".

This is probably why I scoff at the prices being asked for bikes today that nobody wanted to ride back when they became obsolete, but before they became "collectable".

If that's your bag, go for it.

Myself, my museum is in my head. :lol:

Actually, he used 93 frames but each year's motor.
