Thanks RM Guy ;)

the winter cold begins to return, the itching from work on the 250 CR too, and for 1 year I had not yet digest the fact that the outlet of the radiator overflow is welded on the wrong side and I put a photo of my 1st adaptation which I didn't like (with the white plastic elbow).
This evening I got back to it after having had a spark of idea that crossed my mind and hop ..
Threading of the radiator and installation of a Schrader KYB valve present on the PSF air forks to which I can connect a screwable end (from my ex nitrogen hose) onto which I screw the breather hose (I can possibly strengthen the fixing of this hose with a small collar).
Here it is, now problem solved, it is clean and the hose can come out towards the rear. It will give a little "Factory" side to the motorcycle

I put it here in case someone is interested
I still haven't started work in my workshop so no reassembly of the bike yet, just a few small extra parts.

titanium screws for the fork, tees and handlebars and rear brake fluid reservoir.

Small surprise this morning in the mailbox, suddenly I wanted to wait for the reassembly of the motorcycle before sticking the decals, I could not help but put it on the plastics.
So no replica for me, there are too many, at least not a lot of choice it's either a Stanton or a JMB, then I have the option of a Peak-Pro Circuit, but you have to find the blue plastics and the white tank and the saddle, so not easy and not for now.
I will have to stick the decoration (maybe) on the airbox, the fork protections that I ordered in gray from Cycra history of sticking to the factory side of the time (and not in white as the original) , the swinging arm when I finished restoring it, and some small stickers to cut that I would put in places not yet defined.
Here, I wanted a sober decals, I hope that this is the case and that you do not dislike it, personally I like we will see once the plastics on the bike.
Good and then ........ WE RIDE WHEN ?????

go hop, little addition of decoration under the front mudguard, this area being very stressed by mud and various stones, I think it will not last long but hey, why not ;-)
and added a little Boyesen on the radiator scoops.

hello

yesterday recovery of a 125 CR 92 in the condition of these photos below.
there is no motor, no fork or front wheel the frame is out of order below the engine (to be repaired if the frame needs) etc ... but they gave it to me.
I especially wanted the white tank to make my 250 CR in restoration in this subject, a Peak Pro-Circuit replica, if one day I feel like it.
the tank is ok so it suits me very well.
