1998 Honda XR250R Military Mods : Long range fuel tank. Metal bracket for for IR Light. Military labeled toggle switches. head light and IR. Tire Mouse (solid core tires) Dessert Paint Job. Also the seat is a tan color as and the long range tank is a tan plastic.
I have a similar bike that came may have come off Ft. Knox too. I reinstalled IR light. new carb, etc. still a hard starter but runs good.
upload photo(s) - maybe we can compare notes. have not been able to find out much info about these bikes and what they used them for.
Have a newer m1030B1 too, but I like the 250 better. the 650 looks "bad" with the oversized fuel tank, but too heavy for off-road riding.
Dr.Tom I think that is 5he mate to my bike. Mine was marked 00029. There were 2 in the auction. I missed the other. I think you got it. They were at a police auction from Pioneer Village police Dept. They got them from Fort Campbell.... what is light did you put on?
My best friend was in the 2nd 75th out of Fort Lewis and they had both 250 and 200 cc Hondas, the 200s were exactly like we used to rip around on in high school! Great bikes we rode them hard and often!
