The CR250R was a Honda racing dirt bike. The prototype was built in 1971, but it was not until late 1972 that production of 'out of the box racers' began and was made available for sale to the general public in 1973. The CR250 was produced for nearly 37 years, with 2007 being the final year of production of this very popular machine.

This Honda Red Rocket has been fully restored by respected bike expert Chris Elderfield at a cost well in excess of the estimate. The bike has a factory exhaust pipe and the appearance of the bike enhanced by the gold alloy wheels complementing the unmarked red paintwork. These bikes are exciting and responsive to ride, without doubt the quality of this one puts it above the rest. 

Interested parties should satisfy themselves as to the description and condition of each lot prior to the sale. Buyers are advised to inspect the car in person or use a professional to carry out this service.
