**SOLD**1989 Honda NX250 Dual Sport

***SOLD***
***SOLD***


This rare 250cc dual sport bike has all kinds of new stuff... K&N filter, new AGM battery (2 months old), new blinker, new tires/tubes, newly recovered seat, new mirrors, shock sox (to protect the brand new for seals I put on there along with new fork oil), new chain and sprockets (about 1,500 miles on them), front brake pads (still in package until the bike needs them), spare rear wheel with hub (listed on ebay right now, unless someone buys this bike first), and possibly some other things I haven't thought of or found yet. The bike has around 18,000 miles. This bike does have a clean and clear Texas title! This bike stays on a trickle charger and has always been stored in a garage with fuel stabilizer in the tank and ran through the carb. The bike can do 65mph and more downhill on the highway. I have only taken it trail riding 1 time since I have owned it. I have put about 4000 miles on it commuting to Dallas (bought it at 14,000 miles). The carb could probably use a good cleaning as it takes a few tries to get it started and the choke has to be left on to keep it running. At one time it had this same problem and I cleaned the carb and it ran great... but I'm no mechanic. The previous owner cut part of the inner tire well plastic so they could fit a different sized battery in the bike. I got the right sized battery, but I haven't had a chance to button that hole up yet. The bike has been ridden in the rain, freezing temps, and the hottest temps and it has performed well in all scenarios.

$1800 obo

Here is the link to the web album with all the photos: http://picasaweb.google.com/11496456...11/HondaNX250#

Here is a link to a video showing the bike and how it runs: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s2K6GJ3Ma9Y

Please contact me by email, PM, or reply to this thread. I will reply to email the fastest since I don't visit this forum hardly ever anymore.

Thanks!

Re: FS: 1989 Honda NX250 Dual Sport

I've seen this bike in person several times and it has to be one of the slickest little NX's I've ever seen. Cody may not be a mechanic, but has done very good work with this little bike.

Oh yeah, and I think I might have helped redo the fork seals if memory serves me right. But I've slept since then...

DFW_Warrior helped a lot on this bike! I can't thank him enough. From rebuilding the forks to putting on a new chain and sprockets and who knows what else. What a friend.

You can have the bike... for a healthy donation of $1800 to my cost of living organization

I have a NX650 and it looks a lot like the 250

It has been a great bike but I only have less than 4,000 miles on it

Have you changed the sprocket sizes? Mine does 80 with my fat butt on it.
