Yes I do have the rest of the bike. I just put it back together after powder coating the frame and also fitting Dyna S ignition.

Interesting, ok does the USA and Australian 1979 f 250 3m3,have a different bore and stroke than the other 1979 models ??? As mine is pointing more towards 55.89 bore with a shorter stroke than 54 x 54 as stated .  :-\

Sounds like someone built a short stroke motor for yours. Maybe same type of crank geometry as the TZR250, 56 mm bore and 5X stroke

Hi lots of really good detail about model difference, I have a 250C which is a German import with spiked wheels and disc front and back, my question is can I fit ally wheels from the later models with my discs etc. ?

not sure if these will help with our specific question on spoked wheels but here's some historic forum discussions on changing wheels between models -

Thanks, brief look at the part numbers etc looks like back sprocket is different and wheel bearings but the spindle should be the same hopefully

Thanks but I have bought some Rd400C ally wheels which are the same as the 250c ally wheel disc back Belgium version, I will be sorting the spokes wheels at some point in the future for re fitting
