Fortunately Oregon only wants the last state of registration, so the Illinois documentation is all he had to give them. He had that title, and a bill of sale. He also had a bill of sale from the local seller, but I told him to just keep it in his pocket, and not muddy the waters. Sometimes less is better with DMV, as it confuses them.
One of my fears was his smoothed firewall, as we had to reaffix the firewall tag. But DMV was only concerned with the dash tag, which we also had to transfer when I replaced the dash top. But they were happy with all of it.

turning it into a supermoto would be really fun around here on all the mountian roads

mod the engine a lil bit get it up around 45hp and it would flat out move considering the bike only weighs in at 230 pounds

its a 4 valve 250 actually , honda later switched to a single carb on this engine and picked up 2 hp but with a few other changes mixed in as well, the second carb actually doesnt open up with the first it has a slight delay in the opeing when u twist the throttle

the bike revs and accelerates smooth as can be well see how it does when i put it threw its paces this year , this bike will see everything from trail riding to desert races , to a few trips to the local motox track after i swap out the front forks to a set much better suited to jumping

this engine makes 34hp and 24fltbs
xr200r engine makes about half of that 18hp and 12 ftlbs iirc

since its so easy to strip it down all the way now im going to tear it the rest of the way down and paint the frame black, replace the cracked rear fender and paint those white with a deep blue pearl over top

im going to strip off all the blinkers/horn reflectors since i never plan to register it , and were i ride those will get ripped off the bike in a hurry. only othe rmod i have planned is swapping out the rear 19.5 long swingarm and 17inch rear wheel for a 21.5 inch long swingarm and 18inch rear wheel off an xr200

might also change the gearing as it sits now its geared to do a lil over 90mph , prolly change out the sprockets for a top speed of around 65

Dave57210 Had an "interesting" day.

A lady who used to work for me had to come into town to see a surgeon-specialist about some brain surgery. Her "hubby" had gone all Kurt Busch on her a couple of years ago, and now she has a lot of bone chips in her face and (thanks to his tender ministrations) also has some brain damage, is getting humongous headaches, now diagnosed as an incipient aneurism.

She'll be staying with us for a few while surgery is scheduled and etc.

tech69 did a little mud work and blocking and got home and my 3" lake county pads were at my door. Can't wait to try them out. I got a yellow one, a couple orange ones, a couple black ones, and a blue one.

I love red too. I love how it looks after a sanding and buffing. Not really enough flat surfaces on a bike to get that feel but the fenders were fun to buff and check out afterwards. If I had a hot rod I'd want Ford's RR, which is a bright red metallic, unlike all the other darker burgundy looking metallic reds out there. It's actually red-red with flake. It's such a nice color.

MARTINSR I got out to the garage to make a pattern for the speakers I am putting in the package tray of the Rambler. I made the pattern and cut the hole for one of them, that was all I had in me tonight.

mud.man.rj Love the little red bike, such detail all thru it, beautiful build, if it was mine would need an engine, getting to old to pedal very far. Would be nice in the back of a cool truck at a car show.
