Next Project????

Sometimes an opportunity is too good to pass up. In my totally unrelated to bikes travels today I came across this slightly used XL250R. In fact all the parts are there and it was obviously a project someone has started then abandoned.

It all started when I took an old fridge to the dump or 'refuse exchange centre' for a mate. On my way through to the scrap metal section I spotted this little beauty, parked on it's stand with all the parts sitting alongside in neatly labelled boxes. I bargained the dump dude down from $100 to $55. It was there, I had $55 and a big empty trailer.......it was almost irresponsible not to take it away..

So now I have project number 2 waiting for project number 1 to conclude. No idea what lies in store for the little 250 although I'm quite sure it will involve a grinder.

Burn out.......

Suffering a bit of project fatigue mainly to the sudden onset of having to work for money......with tools, for others. Oh well helps put paint on the metal bits I suppose.

Hopefully the dude in this pic didn't suffer too badly and this was just a flash of flame rather than a long burn scenario.....maybe he misunderstood the concept of burning rubber off the start?? The competition seems to be taking it fairly casually.

pretty sure this came from  http://planbmotorcycles.blogspot.com
