For Sale / [Not VMX] 2003 Honda XR70 ** Sold**
« on: March 19, 2018, 09:42:36 PM »
2003 Honda XR70

3 speed, auto clutch.

# JH2DE02033K612533

Surface rust in places on rims and other spots. Usual scratches you'd expect on a kids' bike. Has spent long periods of time not being used (could even be original tyres).
Leaky fork seals. Throttle twist grip bit sticky after falling over in deep sand. Slow leak in rear tyre. One side panel has been repaired. Snapped off sidepanel mounting bolt (cable tie does the job).

After sitting for months I turned fuel on and noticed a slight fuel weep around float bowl, possibly a gasket has dried out due to lack of use. Should also mention, that it also fired up after 4 kicks and ran happily despite the hiatus and stale fuel!

Owners manual and other documents that came with it when new included.

Comes with size L kids M2R helmet in fair condition.

Located near Ballarat.

$825

Did that go through to 1981?

1979 and 1980 as far as I know, and according to Motor Era website.

This is probably the same XR500, at Harrow in 2010:

Here's a pic I took a few years ago of a twin shock XR500:



I expect 250 would be similar.

Not vintage, but Josh Ballard is riding a Yamaha TTR250 in the Enduro 1 class!

It looks like at least 2 riders who missed out on vintage class at 2018 A4DE are going to ride their old bikes anyway:

Michael Turner, NSW, Yamaha IT250 (Masters)
Kevin Cameron, NSW, Suzuki PE400 (Veterans)

Maybe they were always planning to ride these bikes in a modern class anyway? Anyway, best of luck to 'em!
