So, I'm starting my 1974 Honda XL250 restoration. I got the 1974 complete bike and the 1972 parts bike for $750. Yeah I may have payed a little much but I've really wanted one and they do not come up very often around here. I'm restoring the 1974, and it had a few missing parts and dings but that adds character. It runs good and rides good. I've so far bought most of the missing parts and a manual for a total so far of $284.31. I have about another $100 or less to go before its done. I'm doing a complete restoration of it. That means stripping the frame, painting it, replacing parts, cleaning, etc. I will be updating on my progress and uploading pictures starting this weekend.
