Just bought a Honda CJ250 - plan is to modify it to a brat style. Just entering Buyer's Regret phase - should come out of that soon.  :-\ Father and son project number 4 - but previous 3 have all been motocrossers. First road bike project.
Bike been sat for a while but runs and sounds nice. Low miles. Tank and panels all good.
Plan is to weld in seat loop, new flat seat, on/ off road tyres/ short exhaust, raised bars ( renthal ??) Not sure about pod filters - I like the look but seems that they cause a lot of running problems? Wheels will need refurb I suspect as some rust on them. Not sure if I can change wheels to cast ones?
Any advice on above gratefully received.  :)
CJ250 Brat - well that's the plan!
