    Hey guys I'm moving this build over here from the other place.
    I'll start out by saying hey my name is Darren and I have had this 250r for about 6 to 7 years. The cool thing is I am the second owner and its been in my family since 1987. My late uncle was the original owner of this 87 and my parents co-signed to help him buy it brand new from the dealership. My dad and my uncle were huge into 250rs back in the day, and they were always racing each other at the dunes seeing who was faster. I happen to acquire this and its been my toy ever since his passing. I've always been a yamaha guy growing up, and now I have kicked that side to the curb and have fallen in love with the 250r.
    Ill spare you guys a ton of pics, and just show the gradual transformation and current state.
    When I got it

    Then I bought a used 310 complete motor and plastic an such.

    Then a few other changes

    Then it sat for a few years, and the frame started showing its age so I had a pumashine gusset kit installed and powder coated.

    And its current state.

    the original motor is a LRD mx ported cylinder by Arlan. Arlan recently bored the cylinder for me and now it's a brand new motor. I have just added a cr ignition.

    Today I ordered a 38mm short body carb from ESR today. Should be a really fun play motor. I can't wait.. I just need a few more things and this should be put together soon

    I'm curious of the pros of the short body. Eddie says he prefers that carb over the standard body.

    Sharp R and really cool that it's been in your family since new.
