It's a Honda, the engine says "RFVC" on top, The engine size 250cc, it has dual carbs on it, it has front air shocks, and a back air shock, the swing arm says "Pro-Link."
The decompresser is integrated with the kick start. Front disk brake, rear drum brake.

They're is no coil or CDI. The Honda shop said they can get me a stock coil, but they may need to get a custom CDI (Bike looks like its built from 83-87) because the CDI is more than likely discontinued. 4 valves on the head (the valve covers are aligned with the corresponding carb)

only one serial number, the rest are scraped off. (It was probably stolen, but i got a bill of sale) Honda said that the serial number is "Invalid" Honda told me to bring the bike down so one of their "Professionals" can identify it, But i dont have a truck



I will be posting pictures later today. I am 100% sure it is a Honda bike (Most of Honda bikes are red, and Honda is the only bike i seen that says "RFVC" on the head.)

I want to throw about 600 bucks at it, but i need to figure what bike it is, it looks like it will be GREAT for endurance racing

Sure sounds like someone stuffed a 4t engine in the mx frame.No idea about where a 250 twin came from though.

no its a single cylinder honda, the rear shock rides between the two carbs

This sounds like a XR250 between 1984 and 1985. Fun bike because the Twin carbs made for a crisp bottom and a screaming top end.
x2. I think the '83 also had twin carbs, but a drum brake in front.

The rear shock is nitrogen charged. It is not an air shock. You can add air to the front forks if you want to, but they still have springs and oil in them.
