I was surfing and came across your site.
Didn't see any 1975 XL250's
so I figured you need a picture or four. Mine's original except
for the handle bars, mirrors, grips, forks(the springs were removed
and air fork caps installed), rear inner tube, front sprocket(one
tooth larger for every day road use), head light bulb(old one
burned out on low beam), spark plug, and battery(guess I can't
expect a battery to last THAT long). It even has the original
tires, all the factory stickers(on the tank, swing arm, and under
the seat) and the original owners manual. It's not perfect, the
rear wheel spokes are rusty and I had to Kreeme the tank about
10 years ago, but it runs perfect and I ride it work almost every
day. Unless I screw up it starts on the first kick. There are
somethings I want to do to it, put fork springs back in it, replace
the rear wheel, put original bars and mirrors on it, and the XL
sticker on the air filter side cover is starting to peel off.
