    I thought about bidding on one of those. The British army bought them in the 90's only in o.d. 1997 Honda XR250 - Military Motorcycles and Bicycles - MILWEB CLASSIFIEDS

    I'm not real savvy on the Military cycles, but I know a little about civi stuff. Looks like a run of the mill Honda XR/XL 250 with a larger gas tank and a few other things added to it. It may be collectable to some. Parts should be available through your local Honda dealer. The dealers tend to be able to order stuff back 10-15 years without much problem. Hope this helps.

    Army was getting them as COTS they were modified and painted by local units, usually Rangers, SF types. There was a backlog in getting the older 250 M1030's and 650 B1's were just coming out. Gl had 2 lots a couple of months ago. I got one of the weird KLR's with the IR lights I am rebuilding.
