Mine was a '76, looked a lot like your 250. Lets just say I was young and it was a looong, $$$$$$$$ process. No love lost when I finally got rid of it. Ironically, the bike I traded for I eventually got back and still have, 20 yrs later. It was my first bike.

I had a '73 F7 (175) I bought out of a neighbor' shed in 1989 which hadn't run in 15 years, had less than 500 miles on it.

Cleaned the petcock, threw in fresh gas, and it started and ran like a champ with no maintenance for the next 20 years, when I sold it. Great bike as far as I was concerned, more powerful than I would have expected a 175 to be.

Most of my un-fond memories were due to a Kawasaki mechanic trying to screw me over. Course, my trying to JB weld the piston back together didn't help either.

I got to where I could literally have the engine out of the bike and the crankcases split in under 30 minutes. Think I was 16 at the time.

Like I said, no love lost. You can read more about it here: http://www.advrider.com/forums/showt...ighlight=mania

and since I originally traded a free bike for it and then proceeded to pour probably hundreds of hours and I think about $600, it still qualifies for this thread, right? It was an oddball bike- pretty sure that's a Suzuki DR front end on it and man, what an ugly color.

They are out there. This one had brand new tires and only 4200 miles, but it needs card work and the fork seals are bad.

Yeah, they're out there. This one is a re-post, but worth showing again, it had Brand New tires, I paid $200 for it, took off the crash bars, and sold them on eBay for $100.

The biggest expense was a front brake line.
