    I lived up in the great state (cough, cough) of Warshington from 1988-1998, residing in Bellevue and Factoria/Newcastle, worked at the Boeing Duwamish building from 1989-1995 and US West Wireless from 1995-1999, so I think I have some grounds to claim PNW "citizenship", so there's that. :D

    I was just trying to help you find the right location in case you were lost. I really dont care what your citizenship may be.

    I appreciate your concern and, as it happens, my right location is anywhere I happen to be. As an American, I have that and many other rights. :D :thumb

    I've been wanting one of those with the mono shock for awhile, and the price is right but I can't do it.

    Nice Honda 1978 CR250R Elsinore, some what complete. Fox Air Shocks, DG Aluminum Swing arm.
    It has compression. A good start on a very popular and fast bike from the 70s.

    "somewhat" complete but "good" condition. ya, right!

    "Thor swingarm...but it has a crack in it." C'mon.

    I'm sure his prices are "negotiable" ;-)

    I stopped in a local shop and saw one of these in their service queue. I said "an old Elsinore?" and the mechanic just rolled his eyes. I commented that it was in remarkably good condition (way better than either of those) and he said "sure it is but it's a bitch to keep running cause we can't find certain parts for it." So, those two basket cases aren't worth a $1 combined...but GLWS.

    Since Craig's started charging for m/c ads the best stuff is often now on FB. I detest social media but opened an account just to get to the marketplace bikes. :dunno
