Hello 250r members. This is a build thread I'm making and will hopefully keep updated as I conduct this build. My deadline is Christmas as this bike will be a gift for my girlfriend of 3.5 years.
I tried teaching her on my 636 and she really started to get the hang of it in parking lots. So last summer I sent her to a MSS to get her license and now the next step is her own bike.
I have been trying for a couple years to get her one and the right deal came along for me to pick one up. I found this 04 in rough shape and has a salvage title thats unregisterable. The seller was willing to trade for my go kart, so I loaded it up and hit the road.
In exchange for the kart the seller gave me the 250 with a box of parts, a 90 zx600 parts bike, and a clean titled "250" frame (which is really for a ninja 500)
Here is the kart in the truck ready to roll

As you can see this bike is ugly as sin. I'd like to make it a full fairing bike again at least for the time being. I like some of the cafe racer and street fighter themes I've seen so far but I'd like to wait until my gf can get a good feel for the bike.
I live with her in Staten Island and the bikes are at my parents house in NJ. So the only real time I have to work on this thing will be weekends.
And since I accidentally uploaded it anyway, some good ass beer to round off a long day of traveling and loading. 1383913503492.jpg
It fits the theme of the thread too.
