Welcome to my site!

Firstly I'd like to say a big thankyou to everyone who's helped me with this restoration including Martin "foxy" at Thunderroad.co.uk and a ton of other companies I've used to locate those hard to find new NOS parts. Last but not least I'd like to say a massive thankyou to all you guys on 4strokes.com,thumpertalk.com,xrv.org.uk---your advice and suggestions have been invaluable and a goldmine of tips etc---thanks!!!

I got this Honda 1985 XR250 RFVC bike in September 2006 off an old school friend who was emmigrating to Australia and he asked me to look after it for him and fix her up. He had owned it since November 1989 and used it up to 1992. In 1992 the shaft the front sprocket sits on broke apart in the engine and I put a new one in plus new piston rings. The mileage at this point was 8537 miles. Since then it had 249 miles of riding and then stood in his shed and never moved an inch until I came along with the mileage reading 8786 on the clock.

Quite amazingly when I went round to pick the bike up, my friend had fired her up after standing for 14 odd years. As I only lived across the road I rode her home and set to work.
