    My old MR250 Elsinore. Had 3 at one time, one of the others is in the background. Sadly, it's in about a thousand pieces now. Been trying to find time to rebuild the motor and set it up to race XC with AHRMA. Keeps getting pushed off the top of the list. I'm thinking this winter is it's winter to get rebuilt though.

    I beg to differ. I have never owned anything newer than a 1985 RM250. I love old bikes, and I love everything about them!
    They are more simple, easier to fix, and much better looking IMHO.
    I am 20 years old, and I get old Harley riders, people on BMW's w/sidecars, sport bikes, and every other kind of motorcycle rider admiring and asking about my 74' MT125! It seems to bring back memories of the old riding days for old folk, and new generation riders seem to appreciate the versatility and simplicity and rarity of it!
    I don't think I ever want to let the machine go, and i hope to teach my future children to ride on this piece of Honda history.
    I regret selling my 1972 Honda XL250 all of the time...
