Up for sale is an amazing 1988 CR 250 that I have owned since 1998. I bought this from a guy that lived on a farm. He had just completely rebuilt the engine even splitting the case to replace crank bearings. He showed me the receipts, gasket kit, Wiseco piston box and old bearings to prove it. So I brought it home and besides the motor I decided to tear it down and go through it. So I made a list and bought all new Honda plastic which includes number plates, fenders, fork boots, gas tank and shrouds, right side radiator with new plastic radiator air deflectors on both sides. I replaced both front and rear wheel bearings, both tires, both brake pads and chain guide with rollers. I might of rode the bike maybe twice a year the first 5 yrs I owned it and maybe 15-20 times total over the last 21 yrs. Mostly all trail riding and some sand dunes.  About the last 7 yrs it has just sat in the garage with hopes of one day getting it out again. I would annually start it and drive it around the block to make sure it ran ok putting fresh gas in it each time. This yr I noticed antifreeze on the ground and found a leak at the hose nipple right side case where the water pump is at. These older side case covers have been a problem for Honda so I bought the new and improved side case cover from Honda along with new water pump and oil seals. The new one is a much better design and should be a fix for the corrosion problem. The bike runs great, it will pull the front tire off the ground when shifting into second gear if you aren’t careful. The bike starts right up usually on the second try when cold. For whatever reason the clutch doesn’t like cold take offs from a dead stop. Not sure if it needs adjustment or what but once it warms up it’s perfectly fine. To do a cold take off you just pull the clutch in and start to roll the bike forward and put it into gear. Again once the bike warms up you don’t need to do this. One other thing the previous owner didn’t tell me was that at some point I dont know how maybe over tightening the drain plug but there is a hairline crack at the base of the drain plug hole shown in the pics. It really never bothered me enough to have it fixed. All I have done is use a dab of ultra black rtv and it seals it up. If you don’t use rtv it will give you a slow drip. The threads are still in descent shape although I don’t tighten this bolt to tight bc I don’t want to strip the threads. The dab of rtv is an insurance to keep the bolt from coming loose and sealing the drip. I have been riding like this for all this time and it hasn’t been a problem, it is fixable but you are probably going to have to pull the motor out to have someone weld it. To me it wasn’t worth it and not really a problem but worth mentioning. Well that’s about all I can tell you about this. Not sure how many of these bikes are left out there in this kind of condition. The plastic is all color matching 1988 Honda red that besides some very light scratches here and there no gouges or deep scratches just normal use and nothing cracked just really nice. I am meticulous how I keep care of my stuff these pics don’t do this bike justice.  They really dont show the unbelievable condition of this bike. I do have factory style clutch and front brake hand levers, I preferred the two finger levers that are on there now. I have IMS bear claw foot pegs on it, I do still have the originals but they are skinny and would hurt my feet. The fork boots are not ripped and from Honda also. It also has a new fmf dent free pipe and delta force reed cage. Not really wanting to sell but I’m not a young guy anymore and my brother in law had to give up riding bc of medical issues. I do not have a title for this bike only a bill of sale. So here is your chance to own a fine piece of motocross history. It was a 88 CR 250 that Ricky Johnson won the Supercross that season.
