I bought this poor barstardised CJ250 a couple of years ago (maybe more) with another bike that I have since restored with the idea of because it had a rebuilt engine I would find another CJ with crap engine and swap to make a viable runner. Didn't happen so (as you would know if following my exploits that I like a challenge to keep the grey cells working) now have decided to rebuild the frame, running gear, etc, as a street scrambler. I luckily found a set of original Honda CL450 pipes at a sale (nobody knew what they were) and if I can fit them then it should look pretty good (these run up the left hand side of the bike with twin outlets). The frame has been 'butchered' (no other word to describe it) by the PO to make a "bobber" (Oh god save us from those with tools and no idea) and many bits 'hacked' off with an angle grinder (and not nicely either) and other bits of 'crap' welded on with a stick welder (and he was not welder, maybe he just hasn't found his place in life - and working on bikes is NOT it) to leave a bloody mess. It was just the engine in the frame and with an old XL250 carb and some bodgy wires I was able to get it running, and it ran sweet. I have now got the steering, forks wheel, etc from a GN250 Suzuki fitted, (same bearing sizes as the Honda) and the swing arm (had to spread the frame by 2mm with hydrualic jack) fitted. I bought some 'Cholins' (Chinese copy of Ohlins shocks) a while ago that turned out to be too long for the intended job but fit this beautiful. I have a smaller XL tank that should fit nicely with the right look. Have a look at some of the butchery here. He cut the tank mounts off. He 'bobed the back. Lucky the GN frame has the same mounts to reweld on. Footpeg mounting???? And of course ALL the stands have been cut off. What did he think, was only going to stop by trees and walls? I was able to rescue these bits from the GN to use. It may not turn out 'original' but it will be back on the road again one day rather than lying unloved around the back of a shed of a person who had big ideas and no idea.
