This rare and much sought after Honda XL250 Motor Sport Enduro/Trail bike has recently been imported from America where it has spent all its life. The air is thin, the climate & atmospheric conditions are far nicer than we struggle on with here in the UK & have helped this old girl keep her looks.
As you can see the bike is near complete and very original. The alloy rim wheels are true with great hubs & brake plates. Forks & yokes are straight with nice alloy & great chrome. Headlight & bracket are great as are the tail light & bracket. Clocks & switches look good. Fenders are both good. Fuel tank is complete & clean enough inside. Seat is great throughout as is the exhaust system. The battery has life in it, the fuel in the tank smells flammable & within a few prods of the kick starter the engine starts, runs & revs great.
This is your chance to own this fantastic piece of Honda Dual sport motorcycling history. The bike is going to be so simple to restore. – indeed it is charming in its now original, un-molested state.
