So a friend of mine said he had an old little dirt bike he was selling super cheap. naturally i was intrigued not really expecting much when he opened up the garage door but it cought my eye right away it was bright ass green and in really good shape it was a mid 70's Kawasaki KT250 which is a 250cc 2 stroke trials bike. it kicked free but sounded sick. I gave him 130 bucks thinking at least it had some cool parts like a clean tank 21 inch wheels and such got it back to my buddies we found out the jets were clogged solid so after a cleaning and some new gas the thing roared to life and i rode it in the hills none stop for two days.

its pretty damn cool and had some rad features for the time it was built. It was oil injected but the pump went out. doesn't bother me none though i prefer to pre-mix anyways. It has a sweet little speedo mounted on the lower of the fork and as far as i can tell is a stock piece.

It also has a chain lube mechanism that is cool just too messy to actually use. there's a reservoir and a small adjustable drip nozzle in the swing arm that just simply drips oil on the chain. and also a nice little chain tensioner.

It was already super cool but i where i live its sort of a chore to go find some dirt and after i realized how easily it'll 60mph plus i decided to make it a little more stylish and such but also easily reversed for a trail ride just an hour or so for kicks and giggles later

it'll probably evolve a little more but i'm digg'n it just to run around town on.

now i don't have a title or anything but in the state of Wyoming you don't need a title for an OHV sticker and in my town you can ride the streets with just lights and the sticker so i'm gonna go down to the C-store pay the 15 bucks insure it just in case and ride the shit out of it.

Good lord dude, really nice score! I love that bike as much as I did when I was a wee child. I'm jealous but at the same time I'm really stoked for you.

P.S. anyone got any little tricks to quiet this little fucker up? being smiggen less than fully legal on the streets i'd like to roll a little more stealth. and the fact that i put a little K&N on it didn't help matters
