My 75 MT250 Elsinore, I wish I never sold it. I have never been able to find one that is complete. I have been looking for years.
I purchased mine new in 1983, at a rally I overheard some guys discussing the colour, one said silver, one said gold the third said it's like a fish it changes colour. !!!It would be my 1988 BMW R100RS in Pearl White.
My 1978 Yamaha RD400 and the guts to ride it like I did in 1980 when I bought it. Man…when I pulled on those paper thin Bates “racing” gloves, I WAS King Kenny Roberts. Well, in my mind anyway.👍🏻🙂If you could have one your past bikes back.
What one would it be and why?
Mine never missed a beat and I trashed it. Being a 2 stroke I had to ring it every 10,000 or so but I rode this thing all over the country with nothing but a backpack. They were really bottom basic tech, not much to break unless you crash it.I'm surprised you kept it running long enough to learn on it.
I had a 1976 MR250 that is basically the same bike, and it was by far the biggest POS bike I have ever owned.
That's true. I recently did a "make run" on an MR175 that was very complete but had been sitting a long time. What a great bike to work on, so simple. Excellent performance from a mid-sized bike with standard porting and a quiet pipe. The owner did a full resto on it and it is now a really nice piece, and pretty quick. Best, DDThey were really bottom basic tech, not much to break unless you crash it.
