    The banshee is together! Now tucked into the tool shed out back so I can make room for this.

    The wife's 87 250
    The gas tank is roached, will be picking up an IMS unit. Torn on stock size or 4gal upgrade.
    I have the hubs at Klemm Cycle yo get new studs pressed and have a few carb trinkets ordered to freshen up the PJ.
    This thing has been sitting back there in the shed since about 2010ish. :oops:

    The 250 is a fun machine. This one is mild. FMF gold (rust) series pipe, mild porting. Pump gas deal.

    What? You post a picture of your 250r and then you sell it?

    No. Lol.
    I had an LT80 Vic was interested in.
    I ended up giving it to some folks I know in Co with kids just growing into it.

    Cool deal. Looks like fun. #1 still has his Banshee, tricked out long rod engine, he did the best he could back before he went into the army I know he would like to freshen it and build it bigger but has a family now.
    I am struggling with my damn CT 70.
    Been in the carb twice, thought it was plugged up but danged if I can find it. Going to have to pick up some serious carb cleaner next time I am in Reno and try once more. Won't take throttle. It is bone stock original and I do not want to mess with any chinese parts, so going to be stubborn.
