Cool bike and great project. Looking forward to seeing your progress. It is really amazing how small and crappy the old footpegs were. Looks like the original ones you have there where thrashed. Greg

I am not sure if you are a Facebook user but if you are, join "CRs only group" If you go to the group area upper left on the computer page (Not on your phone App) you will see a files section. There are PDF versions of many of the Honda shop manuals ... more »

I bought my seat cover, decals and number plate backgrounds up here in Alberta Canada. I know they ship plenty of stuff to the states and with your US dollar being stronger the price should work out great. Good folks and nice products. ... more »

It has sure been tough to make progress. I managed to find 1 afternoon recently so I started to assemble my pieces to the bike. I have pretty much all parts and sub assemblies ready. Just need to assemble and fire this bad ... more »

It turned out real nice. I am working on a restoration with upgrades on an 88' right now and am getting close to finishing. These are great bikes. You should finish up by adding some original or replica graphics and number plate backgrounds. The bike ... more »

What was the powder coat colour code and how do you like the match? Greg

I love the 89's. Looks like a nice candidate for a resto mod buildup. Looking forward to your build. Thanks for sharing. Enjoy. Greg

Added reply in a thread Honda hand guards 10/6/2017 9:19 AM

I have been going through the same thing. I am restoring an 88' CR250 to be similar to what I raced back in the day. I had used Acerbis hand guards back then as well as Acerbis disk/fork guard. I did a lot of searching and can't find any NOS of that

I ended up picking up an old Dirt Bike magazine from ebay that has the 1994 Honda CRE260 and 1994 Honda CRM250 tests in it. The CRE is the early imported Italian bike before they had to be assembled in the states with pieces from Italy. Very cool bikes.

You sparked my interest in this again. I did some searching for some old Dirt Bike and Dirt Rider magazine articles. I found Dirt bike had articles in 94' and 96' I ordered some old copies of ebay and should have them in a week or ... more »

I was always fascinated with the CRE Honda's back in the day. I remember reading about them in Dirt Bike and Dirt Rider. I dug through my old magazines for info on them but it seems I did not keep them all and don't seem to have anything on them. Finding ... more »

That is a cool bike. I would love to swing a leg over that. Enjoy. Greg

Added reply in a thread Finally done! 8/6/2017 11:01 PM

Wow. Amazing bike. Those were probably some of the best looking bikes of that era. Greg

Added reply in a thread 1986 CR250R Resto 7/30/2017 9:42 PM

Looks like a worthy project. Some of these bikes just get hammered and left for dead. Nice to see them resurrected. Got to love stuff like a wooden caliper piston. Great bike. Keep us posted on the progress. Greg

Added reply in a thread Crf 250 front end in 96 cr 250 7/28/2017 6:15 PM

The 1989 Cr250 would need the same All Balls 99-3540-5 bearings top and bottom for all the CRF forks right up to current as far as I can see. Greg

Added reply in a thread Crf 250 front end in 96 cr 250 7/27/2017 6:37 PM

For your 1989 you will need two All Balls 99-3540-5 bearings. You are correct. They are the same top and bottom. I am swapping a 2001 CR 250R fork onto my 1988 and it uses the same bearings. Greg
