1972 Honda XL250 K0 #09

Special Silver

XL250-1007675

How about a nice honest original low mile 1st year XL250 K0 !!!!!!   Kind of a crazy story behind this one.   Purchased by a British gentleman in California and had one of his Mates go through the mechanical side of the bike including new tires etc.   He then proceeded to want to ride the bike across the United States………..Hmmmmm.   It appears that he got as far as Salt Lake City to visit another one of his British friends and decided he had enough cross country on a 250cc machine.   There the bike sat for several years and I found it here just a couple of months ago.  Got the bike to my shop, serviced it and it starts right up and runs well.  Lights work and absolutely no dents in the tank (these tanks are very prone to rust and this one is very solid).  The seat was in pretty bad shape so had that restored and replaced a frozen choke cable with a NOS piece.  Tool Kit and Owners Manual are still present under the seat and even has a good working (unobtanium) plastic horn button.  Expect the patina associated with a 45 year old bike, but the difficult parts are all there and rust free.

This would make an excellent vintage rider and I wouldn’t be afraid to put it on the trails and have some fun or will make a very nice piece to start a restoration if you want to go that way.

Title in Hand.
