Here's My RD250E
« on: June 29, 2019, 01:33:54 PM »
Well, I think that's enough for now, time to actually ride the beast and enjoy this weather. After purchasing the bike from a fellow member earlier this year I've tried to do a "ride & smile" update on it; mainly cosmetic with some mechanical work as I discovered missing bits, etc.

Correct, I bought it from him earlier this year and have given it a fair bit of an overhaul since then, replacing missing/incorrect parts, sorting (hopefully) the carburation out, repainting wheels, cases, exhausts, etc.

When does a bike stop being "person X's old bike" and become ones own?  :( :(

Maybe I'll paint it purple!

From my experience, it takes many years
Painting it purple would certainly decrease that time
Although changing the number plate could help as well

Not sure if it's an E or F.
Macho Maroon if it's an E
Competition Yellow if it's an F
Personal opinion ;) ;)
