'83 XR250RD "Barn Find" For Sale in Melbourne
« on: June 16, 2018, 05:55:08 PM »
Un-restored original bike, like a Barn Find.  Starts, runs & rides like a beaut. Idles smoothly, clutch, gears, brakes all work nicely. Factory instrument and lights are all there and working, even the original horn works would you believe it! 100% complete and un-molested bike. It's been sitting for a very long time and the original plastics are very faded but still flexible and not cracked. Seat original cover is mostly disintegrated but seat foam is still there. Exhaust header is rusted out. Muffler was replaced with an aftermarket part which is the only non-original part I can see on the bike. There is damage to a couple of cooling fins on the engine. The damage is unsightly but it's only asthetic does not effect the running of the bike, there is no damage or cracks affecting the internals. I have spoken to a specialist Aluminium welder who says that he can repair the damaged fins relatively easily if he's given the barrel & head off the bike. The bike is located in Ringwood which is in the eastern suburbs of Melbourne, asking $1600. Inspections welcome. Send me a PM if interested, Matt.

That sounds like a very fair price. I hope you're also advertising other places.

Thanks Don.  I put it up on the vinduro forum and the XR Owners facebook page yesterday to give the enthusiasts first dibs on it.  I reckon it'd make an ideal vinduro mount for someone. I'm not gonna take it on myself because personally I prefer 2T Enduro bikes.  If I don't get any bites in the next few days I'll advertise it more widely.
Matt.
