    Not really "finds". More like "WTF's"

    So are those heads (the gold colored ones on the bike in the ad) something special too or just a different year?

    They are aftermarket DG heads and they are slightly higher compression and the larger radial fins helped with cooling.

    Edited: After reading some reviews on this bike, maybe not so much want...
    'The MVX250F engine has the dubious distinction of being the least reliable of any Honda street bike in recent memory. Seizures were alarmingly common, and Honda's only fix was to increase oil consumption to a ridiculous level—so much so that oil often blackened the whole rear of the bike and so much soot packed the inside of the silencers that they in essence became unmuffled straight pipes. The inboard disc was nearly as bad as the motor, seizing up up from corrosion almost as often."

    I know Kurt, the previous owner of that bike. He's a kooky guy but did good maintenance.
