Who doesn’t have fond memories on a two-stroke? For many, those memories were formed on a Honda CR250. If you owned a Honda in the 1980s-1990s, you were living the life. Back in the early 1970’s Honda wanted to compete in the motocross industry, but were reluctant to introduce a two-stroke motorcycle.
Honda’s owner, Soichiro Honda, vastly preferred four-strokes. Back then four-strokes weren’t powerful enough, nor could they generate the engine rpm to compete with two-strokes. Near the beginning of the 1970’s, Honda gave in to the two-stroke craze and introduced the Honda Elsinore. The machine caught like wildfire. That singular bike is often attributed to the rise in the sport on US soil. It was a wildly popular motocross bike.

The all important ‘what does it look like with a rider on it film?’ Really pleased with the proportion and feel. Still needs its seat but that should be any day now. @viking_motorcycle_seat Once that’s back, I can finish off the tanks intersection with the seat and paint. . . #cr250 #cr500 #hondacr250 #honda #builtnotbought #streetscrambler #scrambler #dirtbike #motocross
