I have picked up a new dirt bike and decided to let highly modified 1991 TW225 monster go to a new home. The bike had a well documented build here on the forum and I still have copies of all the images that I can share with potential buyers. It works extremely well and is very reliable and runs great.

There is also a hoard of parts included. Compete XT engine cases, XT suspension parts, TW engine cases, most of the stock TW parts, extra rims and tires .... etc etc etc.
The bike is registered for the road but would require the instrument cluster and turn signals to be reinstalled as well as some sort of DOT approved tire solution sorted out. I am willing to ship if someone is interested and can help deliver if someone in the maritimes decides to purchase it.
The bike has been a ton of fun to build and would love to see it go to someone on the forum. If it doesn't sell I will probably part it out and sell the parts here on the forum. Primarily I am just trying to free up some space and get some funds to start modding my new bike ..... the cycle continues.
I will let it all go for $2500 Canadian dollars.
Shoot me a PM if interested.

Dang, that is a LOT of bike for the money... I hope someone here jumps on it!
It would be a shame to tear it apart....
Good luck on the sale!
Now I must hurry on... for there they go, and I am their leader!
How much different did this bike handle in the rough?
If you’re to start from scratch, what would you do differently?
The reason for my asking is that I’m deep into rebuilding a TW as we speak?
As is the engine and transmission is perfect. It behaves like a dirt bike should with the pumper carb and new piston. The engine revs out quickly and the gear spacing is perfect for trail riding. The suspension works great and the bike is very soft with lots of travel.
Now if money was no object .....
- Aluminum rear hub built from scratch
- aluminum rear rim from a ATV
- Aftermarket exhaust
- Lace a 18" TW front rim to the front WR hub to keep the TW look and keep it road legal.
Does anyone know if it is difficult to register a Canadian bike in the USA, in Oregon in particular? Or is it basically like bringing one from a different state, where all they do is check the VIN number on the frame?
Excellent mods and a great deal on that bike.
If this bike were in CA - I would buy it......really like the big and little well thought out details.
