  • Vintage CR250 Honda

    I built some new lower mounts for a guy this morning for his Vintage CR250 Honda ...The stock mounts had been damaged so I started from scratch and this is what I ended up with....

        Bad Brad!

        Good memories of him winning the world 500MX title on about the fourth or fifth attempt. I still have a "How to ride MX" book by Brad - bet that's a rare classic!

            Brad Lackey

            Honda Elsie!

            I thought Brad was a Team Green Man!

            Mounts look awesome.

            Be Cool,

                Ha, ha! I used to ride the "Hangover marathon" at Sandhill every Jan 1st.
                Good times!

                I could dig out the book and get Brad to autograph it!

                I remember Graham Noyce also......

                  I remember Brad couldn't get a ride the year after he won the title.

                  After that time U.S motocross became dominant, and the World titles stopped meaning so much.

                    In my opinion Bob Hannah was the best motocross racer ever, period.

                      B_C man, really nice welds in the pix.

                      What is the process that you used ?

                      I'd like to try it.

                        i think i would have put a little bigger motor mount so i could put a neopren bushing! those were some screaming little 2cycl. engines and vibrate to. lol

                          Bigger than they are now would create clearance problems between the mount and primary cover...
                          Good idea though...

                            In the US anyway......He didn't want to go to Europe...Said he didn't like the living conditions or the food.......Maybe the competition.....LOL

                              A few years ago I also worked on a vintage CR, but it was a '82 CR480, very fast motorcycle. The dogs on 2nd gear were rounded over and honda doesn't make that gear anymore. I recut the 3 dogs using a surface grinder and a dividing head. That's what happens when you shift with no clutch. By the way BC, I think your welds look great, nice work!
