    Would you? WR250f in a box $100

    Needs radiators, rear sprocket and chain, and steering bearings.

    Was asking $250

    He took it apart to ship to Washington from here then wasn’t able to ship home.

    It’s sat in a box for a year

    I think I can out it together

    But it is a basket case so who knows?

    The fun in such a basket case will be in figuring out what parts go where depending upon how far he disassembled it. Just my opinion here but I call his story, Put it in a box to ship it as complete BS. I bet shipping an entire bike in numerous smaller boxes would be more expensive than shipping it in one piece. Can any of us imagine all the work involved in tearing it down, packing it all up for shipping and then putting it all back together? This seems to fall under that old saying, You can't fix stupid. I would grab it in a heartbeat and just hope at least 95% of it is all there. Those are very sweet bikes and certainly worth the effort.

    For a hundred bunks and the chance to have a steal for a WR250... go for it. Yea, parting it out will make your $100 back if it comes to that
