A bit closer to getting her back on the road today. I had to remove the top yoke because brake-fluid from the old master cylinder had leaked onto it and made a mess of the paint, so it had to be redone and then refitted. Also removed the exhaust system and fitted brand new sealing bushes in the expansion box. Finally, I refitted the headlamp and all that's left to do (another day) is to bleed the new master cylinder.

Here's some new pix...

Hi Tom,

I stumbled upon your blog whilst looking for some pics and other interesting info on the CB 250n. I bought myself one today for a few euro`s and I am wondering what kind of surprises I will be encountering when going for a refurb.

How far are you with your refurb? I can`t see any pics of the restoration but am certainly interested.

Take care,

Joeri (Belgium)
