Been looking at buying an XT250 and the prices for non roadworthy ones is ridiculous.

I hired a Serrow XT225 once and had fun on it. They don't have the classic XT500/250 looks, but might do a similar job at a more reasonable price.

Looked at those too :thumbup:

I had 2 XT250's and they were not popular in the early 80's.

As I get older i realisable all the old stuff is basically total crap, people only buy them for so called nostalgia or worse still an investment. Me I just want something that works. I'm happy without any off it. :grin::grin::grin:

....or 4 hours on an A Series to change the bypass hose without taking off the head as you were trying to save work and time! (and no skin on your knuckles by the time you had finished!):lol:
