My ugly mugshot was chosen to cover the Spec-Sheet on an online magazine called "SHOOT YOUR BIKE". Well, it wasn't so much my mugshot, as my beautiful SuperDream. I was caught on camera riding over the West Pennine Moors sporting my 70's helmet and leather jacket.

Hi Mate. I have been reading your blog with much interest today as I have just acquired a CB250NA. Its in pretty bad shape, but what can i say.... i like a challenge. It hasn't been started for 7 years and has sat in a shipping container for most of that time. replaced the plugs, put air in the tires, bit of petrol, turned the key and hit the GO button. To my surprise, she kicked over without too much effort and sounds reasonably good. It did cough and splutter and spit out a fair amount of crap from the exhaust but that seemed to clear up after a minute or two. Carbs are overflowing into the air box but im guessing its just a build up of crap sticking the float open. I will be reading over your post while I attempt my first bike refurb! Thanks for the info and keep posting!
