    XT225 is a very good bike. I want it a little more classic and succinct . scambler style is the best choice.
    the first thing I thought about was the gas tank DT250. That is not a bad choice. starts with the my bike . why not

    Your gas tank is a 1973 model . I don't know if it's from a 250 , but it's definitely a 1973 .

    That is a beautiful bike. I'd give my left one for it and if it was a 360 you could have them both, although I'm not sure what you'd do with them but that's your problem :D
