Like your work, had a early 250 of the same vintage back the late '70s, used it only for bushwork but it was a basketcase when I got it & I had to rebuild it, nice bikes - simple to work on
Cheers

Yep, it makes a lot of power down low with that rotary valve. This is an early 1970 model, there are a few things that changed mid year for durability. Share these videos if you like.

Thanks Junkman I'm subscribing as well. Nice to see some one actually working on a bike that looks like what I start with. Old and nasty!
