Looks like it will be another great build. Good luck with getting everything together.
Now if I can only convince the other half to bring my next 250r build in the house…. lol

Cant wait to see the end result

Thanks! I didn't actually ask mine... I brought the frame inside when I got it back from powder coating and just started assembling little by little. Then at some point it turned into full-on assembly and what you see now🤷🏼‍♂️😁 It's certainly been nice keeping it inside since it's been so cold out here in MI without a heated garage; otherwise, I really don't think I'd be this far along with the rebuild. I need to take it back out to the garage soon or it'll never fit through the doors without some disassembling.

Here's the latest progress.

I'm getting close to a standstill without having 3 critical parts - a steering stem, a swing arm, or an engine. I'm at the mercy of ISF on when he gets around to building the stem and arm, which it's hard telling when that will be. The bottom end is finished, but I'm waiting to have my ESR 363 CEO top end returned to me from the Selvy family. My hope is that they'll locate it and send it back soon, but I fully understand that they're busy with their own lives and grieving the loss of Rob, let alone tracking down all of Rob's customers parts and getting them returned.

There are small odds and ends that I can do in the meantime. One big thing that needs to get done, that I just can't get excited about, is trying to turn these nasty, old OEM fenders into clean, whiter riders. I had pretty great results with my first rebuild when I refinished my OEM fenders, but these are in much, much worse shape than the first ones that I started with.

This XC build is still on-going, but it won’t be ready in time for the start of the D-14 XC race series on May 21st, unfortunately. Or possibly the entire race schedule with how things are going. I still need a top end (🙏🏻 that I get mine back from the Selvy’s), no-link swing arm from ISF, and shocks from Motowoz. Since I haven’t gotten confirmation on the swing arm I haven’t even ordered the rear shock yet. The front shocks should be shipping any day now, though.

I’m still racing the series, but using my other 250R. I made some updates to help ensure it’s ready for the series - ditched the swing arm skid plate and added a Hess rotor guard and BCC sprocket guard, Cycra hand guards, and an 01 CR ignition.

We had a training/practice day yesterday - she ripped!
