Your Collection: 1980 CR250Sunday, June 19, 2011 | 6:00 AM
This weeks collection comes to us from Stevie Denton from the UK.
I was inspired by Marty Tripes's 1979 factory RC250, which is probably the most beautifull bike I've ever seen! The idea was to build my bike as if HRC had built it, now, today, in the 21st century.
I'm only 29 but I love these old twinshocks! Building it was a real labour of love, but it wasn't built to just look at!! It was built to race! (as you can see) The first race on it was an incredible day!! I LOVE IT...... loads of smooth power and superb handling! (plus that wonderful 2 stroke sound and aroma!)
It was, in fact, my first race in 12yrs and only the 3rd time I'd ridden a dirt bike in that time. Nothing like jumping in at the deep end is there! I used to race in "School Boy" races, so the last bike I raced was a 1997 CR125."
Thanks for looking!
