I'm from the Edmonton area in Alberta, Canada. I just purchased a very rough MX250 with the thought that I would do some light trail riding but I plugged into the vintage MX community and have revised my plans a "bit"! My understanding is that the major rule restriction for the 2 shock class is travel. I've disassembled it down to the frame and so far it will need: 1 fork tube and all seals, triple clamp bearings, front hub bearings, all cables, rear hub bearings, all brake internals including shoes, cam, springs, etc. a whole wack of miss matched nuts and bolts, chain, sprockets, rear shocks....... and don't get me started on a motor. Can anyone give me some advice on prepping this bike for racing. Can I steal parts from other models to legally upgrade the performance? Specifically I'm thinking of swing arm length and front forks but other stuff as well. I figure if it needs replacing I might as well upgrade now instead of later. Any and all advice is greatly appreciated. Oh and so far I'm not so into restoring it to show room stock.
