    xr is actually exactly what i want. i dont care how old.

    250 cos i dont even have my ls. and im happy to ride a 250, pretty sure q ride is over in qld so thats all im allowed anyway.

    i just need it as a donor to build an ICV out of.. but i would probably rego it and ride it first.

    no point settling for a real old one when ya could almost definitely get something around about a 90 model for a grand maybe a bit more or less depending on how much ya shop around.

    Just Bikes magazine would be your best bet

    i don't think you'll find an xr250 for a grand. especially a running late 80's early 90's model. they are good reliable bikes and hold there value well.

    you want road reg? have a look at dirtbikeworld forum sometime some cheapies come up in the classifieds
    T18 in the build

    cheers, thats the type of info i need.

    marvis. Individually constructed vehicle. its the name given to usually cars, but also bikes, which is basically home made.

    clubmans ect are icv's. as are other kit cars ect.

    i dont think im gonna get around to it any time soon. but i thought this was a good place to ask.. i could base it on a pit bike even, but an air cooled 250 enduro/trail bike would be ideal. even a motor cross bike would be ok, but lights are an issue, so like even an rmx? or wr or something. i dunno its been ages since i was into bikes.

    it will kinda look like a cross between a speedway bike and a bobber. mid control, really basic, skinny road tires front and back, clip on bars, low.

    i just want something that is more conveniant to get around the city in, than a fucking car. dont really want something fast or anything like that. i would prolly gear it so its punchy but tops out at like 120.
