Gonna totally level with you....I used to race a 96 CR and a 98 CR back around 2000, lol...and I don't see me ever wanting to do this (if i could go back there for a few). I mean to each their own, and if you LOVE the bike enough to put the money into doing that then do it up...dont let me stop you. Just really comes down to do you like the bike enough to keep it once you put the money into it, knowing its already 15yrs old. AND these things will probably not add much value, come re-sell time.

It's hard to picture, but it sounds like a color nightmare.... :smirk: But that is just me. I prefer the OEM look, especially when it comes to the steel framed CR's.

If you're going to put money in to it, tough to top this look; in my opinion anyway...

That (above) is a great post.

I'm 47 years old and have a 1991 KX250.

I could buy a '07 CR450 for $2700...thought about it and tempted.

But, better idea is spend 1/2 that $2700 building a good track around our five acres and get a ton more seat time.

It's not like the old 91 KX is the limiting factor in my riding....it's me and my ability to hang on to the thing!

Been doing push ups, pull ups and sit ups all winter. I will be a ton more ready come spring.

Coo
