it just never ends...


HONDA CR250M Elsinore 1974 Vintage Motocross AHRMA
Vehicle Description

You are bidding on a BRAND new 1974 Honda CR250M





When was the last time you seen a brand spank’n new Elsinore??





Frame #CR250M 1010241

Engine #CR250M 1010464



This bike came out of the box and into my office.



I have had it for about 14 years in the office so there is a little dust on it….not bad.



Sit down and I’ll tell ya the story:

I bought if from a guy who ran a Honda dealership back in the day.

He sold some parts off of it to a customer in 1974 and never replaced them. I bought this bike from him in May of 1995 and ordered the missing parts from Honda. (They were still available then). I bought a complete new seat, a rear brake pedal bolt and a rear axle. everything else was still there!

Cleaned her up a little and has been in my office ever since.

The tires were cracking so I replaced them with Bridgestone M22 & M23 period correct tires and had them professionally put on with a tire machine for it wouldn’t leave tire iron marks.(If I can find the old tires you can have them also).



It even has the hard to find mud guard on the frame down tube.

Over the years the front number plate rubber broke but you can get one from:

http://www.re-mx.com/cr/cr125_cr250.php. ($9.00)





Buyer is responsible for arranging shipping. I can deliver to Sacramento, California Forward Air for $75.00 to cover locks, tiedowns and gas. My location for shipping is Sacramento, CA 95841

I except Cashiers check or cash.

Email me on payment issues-- dcoupe@syix.com

The motorcycle you are bidding on is the legendary Honda CR250M Elsinore.

This bike is in awesome condition and is probably one of the most collectable motorcycles a motocross enthusiast could own!!! Especially new out of the BOX



You won’t be disappointed!!

Any idea which manufacturer first used inverted forks on their dirt bikes?

Also curious to know if "monoshock" has come to be just a general word describing the rear single shock even though it was Yamaha's product name for their newly released shock in 1976. Kind of like the word "kleenex" has become a general word even though it's a brand name.

I'm pretty sure that was KTM around the mid- 80's. I have a 1985? KTM 125 that supposedly was first generation USD forks.

Oh, who knows.
In '75 or '76 I got the bright idea to get it painted red (like the factory RC's) and installed a DG "laydown" kit on the swingarm with Boge shocks.
I guess I sold it to somebody because by '78 I had a new Yamaha YZ.

Yeah, if I had only known...

+1I have an '85 KTM 250. I think white power was the first to come up with those forks; not sure though...

Sure This one is broken, so the exhaust isn't hanging right, and I think its got a non-stock carb.

This is all I got, I'm on slow speed. The bike is for sale Pm me. P.S. Stagehand is correct, a Mikuni is wrong, they came with a bing, and a dellorto on the later bikes.

Having only sat on one, and not ridden it, I can still safely say the WP suspension is pretty damn incredible. I bet it would be an absolute MONSTER bike, especially the 250.

Hey- off topic but Does anybody know anybody who would rebuild the forks and rear shock on this? I bet those are worth some small change in good working order.
