Today an anonymous follower sent me photos of his own CB250N Refurb, so I thought I'd post it on here. If you want to see more of it, click on the photo.

Isn't this a 400N? Because I see two front brake discs and a black engine block...

It is a 250 Klass, with a CX500 front end. I got knocked off it in 1991 (hence the skuff marks on the left of the speedo clocks plastic) and the front end got totalled and I had the chance of a twin disk front so I grabbed it.
The black engine block is a result of a bad winter, even tho everything was polished and WD40'd the aluminium all furred up and looked hideous. I prefer the look of the later Dreams anyway with the black block and polished cam cover so I went with that.
I have spare side panels and a petrol tank Im going to do in Blue so the engine block may well revert to shiny metal yet (or get some Sperex as Tom has done)
I wish it was a 400. Not many engines come up for sale these days and theres the problem of changing all the electrics as well so Im staying with a 250 ... for now lol. Cheers guys
(sorry for hijacking your blog Tom)

Hi Mike, Halfrauds sell it (or did when I last went). Alternatively, you could easily purchase it from Ebay.
