I just realised that I started this project two and a half years ago. That's ridiculous! I've been trying to figure out why this "quick refurb" has taken longer than previous "rebuilds". For example, my BEAUTIFUL 400/4 took around 6 months to complete.
Another possible reason for it dragging on is that I just didn't perhaps take things as seriously with the CB250N. It was supposed to be a low cost "in the background" kind of exercise. Well it certainly was in the background!! But now it's time to sort the bladdy thing out. It's sitting there looking all gorgeous but doesn't run. As you know (if you've followed this blog for any length of time), I've tried everything to sort out the problem. The only thing which remains is the alternator/pickup. It just has to be that! (How many times have I said that)?
I guess we'll know for sure when that alternator arrives.
