Just a quick post to say hello. I'm a relatively new biker as only did my CBT less than 2 years ago. The reason I did my CBT was I was travelling to Vietnam and the only way to really travel their is by motorcycle so I thought I better learn how to ride! The short version of the story is that I did my CBT in December 2015 and loved it. Bought a Suzuki VL125 Intruder 3 days later. Did 3000 miles before buying a Honda Win 110 in Vietnam and riding all the way across the country from Ho Chi Minh to Hanoi. Did my full test in July last year, and 3 days later bought a Suzuki Vstrom DL650 that I love.

I recently decided that I wanted a project bike to keep me entertained over winter. The plan being to build a street tracker-ish type bike. A couple of weeks ago I bought a Honda CD250U a couple of months out of MOT and looking quite tired. Here's what it looked like when I got it.

2 weeks and 9 hours work later I've got it pretty well stripped down as you can see

I'm sure I'll be posting lots of silly newbie questions soon :)

Welcome aboard. Not familiar with this model but looking at the parts fiche on CMSNL it appears to be one of the SOHC 250's. One site says it's a 180 degree crankshaft and the engine is the same as the US 250 models like the Rebel and Nighthawk.
