Wow, great looking bike.
I plan on racing AHRMA cross country with mine. It probably wont be as pretty as yours when its finished. Hopefully it will do the trick though.

Although I plan on selling mine some day after a title is obtained, I love my 250. It's a '69 though, not that better handling dude you got. But I ride the shit out of it. Put about 300-400 miles on it this past weekend.

i also have a B 25T---love it , but still cant figure out how the factory tightened the head nuts----you just cant get any kind of tool on the inner nuts----and an odd size to boot---so the oil leaks into the cylinder everytime you shut it down, then a big cloud of smoke when you start it---hope you have better luck on assembly

bsatrinor,

The inner head bolts require a 3/8 BSW open-end wrench...either that or you can file open a cheap 9/16" wrench from auto zone. Even with the open ender, you have to flip the wrench every turn, it'll only turn 1/12 turn every pull. Hope that helps.


A smattering:
'53 Gold Flash
'67 Royal Star
'71 Rickman Metisse
'40 Silver Star
'37 Rudge Special
sixtyseventy Lightboltrocket road racer...and many more.
