XR 250 question
« on: March 17, 2018, 11:24:41 AM »
I have a customer in NZ that wants twin shocks for a XR 250 1979 . To my knowledge XR 250 came out in 1981 and were of mono shock construction . Was there a earlier twin shock version ?

Twin shock XR250 came out in 1979, based on the same XL250 of that year, but with small headlight and speedo combo and different rear fender and tail light.

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



I expect 250 would be similar.

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

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