    91 EVO CR250R.jpg
    In other moto/retro related news, I have been offered the opportunity to ride an EVO 91' CR 250 in the 40+ class at a VMX meeting later next month... :yum (okay... so it's not Vinduro - it's VMX... but the bikes are still old school cool :thumbup ).

    Never ridden a HONDA in a race before... tempting. :nod

    If my buddy does not get over his aches and pains in the next couple of weeks (he had an off at a VMX meeting here in Swednavia two weeks back... tickled some ribs and a collarbone)... then I will have to.

    He's all paid up with entries, travel, ferry tickets accomodation etc. He's still going of course, just needs a numpty to sit on the saddle for him, if not up to it his self. :1drink

    I saw 3 old Honda CR's today at Springwood Suzuki today. A 500, 250 & a 125. To be sold all together. Wish I was a bit younger to enjoy them.

    Picked up this yesterday. It's a 1995 WR250 with a seized top end, caused by 'dunno' and there's some small bits of shrapnel around the conrod. Haven't had a close look yet. Dunno whether to put it back together with new piston, etc, or turn it into an electric. Last bike I bought cheap, sight unseen, ended up costing me $2400 in parts and while I'm sure this one's in much better shape that last experience and the 'right hand drive' turns the mind towards electric if it turns out the bottom end's lunched, which I don't think it is, but the shrapnel's come from somewhere. Manuals are hard to find as well, which makes the job a bit tougher.

    Anyway...

    Obviously it's been road registered (blinkers, rear mudguard, etc) at some stage but it's not a bike i'd use on the road except for very short trips.

    The engines in those didn't change much until Husky was bought by KTM and the line stopped.

    You can take the six speed gearbox out of that and fit it to a 2010 WR300 for example, so most engine manuals for the 250/300/360 should do, and the usual parts are easy to find.

    There is a list of downloadable Husky manuals on the net, I'll see if I can find them again.

    Found them, I thought they had more of the 90's models though. https://husqvarnaoutlet.com/repair_manuals
