Have a running 1989 RM250, have a few questions:

1) Is there a class for that era motorcycle in AHRMA?
2) Can I graft a later model's front fork/wheel assembly either to the triple clamps or in the steering head?
3) Ditto Shocks?

It's been sitting for at least 10 years. It was impossible to kick start which is why NO one of my kids would ride the thing. I had bought a FMF fatty pipe, heavy flywheel & new ignition for it....interestingly it will bump start if I drag it a while. Then when its hot it starts first kick.... Any idea's?

Trying to put together a stable of AHMRA's bikes so I can participate. Have that KTM 420, want a vintage 250 too.
