Aprilia RS250 - Before....During.....After:

I've always liked the idea of two-strokes and as the RS250 was pretty much as far as anyone had developed a road going version I couldn't pass up the chance of buying a cheap one. I basically stripped it to the frame, cleaned/greased it and rebuilt it with a few new bits, like bearings, pistons and rings, along the way. It didn't cost that much but it did take me over a year to do. Not sure what to do with it now!
