    My little run around

    I bought this Honda a few months ago now, its a 1983 XLX 250R it has been stood in a shed for ten years before i got hold of it and never been road registered, after initial inspection I removed the swing arm and greased everything well as it was a bit stiff, no new bushes were needed, both brakes had to be re-lined as the original linings had separated from the shoes, a new battery and headlamp bulb and it passed an MOT using the frame no for identification. Two months of paperwork ( a long story for another day) got it road registered and luckily for me an age related number not a Q plate. Forgot to mention after picking the bike up I fitted a new spark plug and she fired up third kick, i haven't even had to clean the carbs out, yes although it is a single cylinder bike it has twin carbs.

    That's a bit of a mad colour combo...... Blue and orange!!!! Looks like a good laugh to ride though.

    I thought the same regarding the colour, the seat looks original not recovered, it's great fun to ride, thinking of trying a bit of green lining this winter.
