Glenn Stucker's RM250
I've dug up a few pictures of the old 1989 RM250K - my first MX race machine. I raced outlaw MX on the dual-carbed 1983 XR500R up in Indiana (ported head, Mugen cam, White Bros exhaust and Sidewinder sprocket) before that .... until I blew it up 3x in one summer. Decided a 2-stroke would handle the abuse I was giving the engine a little better! :) Wished I had kept that bike now, and the XR350, and the DT175, and the SL70, and the Z50, end the ......you know the deal.
Great bikes and great memories all of them. That's why I finally decided that at least the RM250 wasn't going to be sold or ridden into the ground like the others.
Hope you enjoy the pictures Paul.

Nak's RX7 Project
Here is Joe Berte's nice rides!
Nice hearing from you here's a couple pictures. Not the greatest but good for now. I have some other bikes also. Keep up the good work, I'll call when I do my friends LTD which needs carbs cleaned.
Model 27 Bultaco
Here is one of John's 'Tacos. I tried unsuccessfully to trade him a bent Akront for it. I wonder what "LOL" means? He is looking for correct parts for it, tank, seat, side covers etc.
This bike had the second worst carbs I've ever torn in to!
Robert Lucas sent me his set of carbs to tear down and clean. I looked at them when I opened the box and thought, "This'll be an easy little set".
Man was i surprised when I popped the float bowls, or should I say pryed them off. See the pics of what I found. I'll put the clean pics up later.
Robert's bike was in a magazine a few years back. I don't have the full story or it's make yet but when I do I'll update this post. See the pics he sent me.
Update. Here's the email Robert sent me concerning the bike:

Grahame's bike in Australia - 84/85 Husqvarna 510 TE
Hi Paul, this is the bike I have bought the carburettor for. It is a very original unrestored bike.
Harald's Bike collection in Germany
the fork arrived this week, changed both springs and applied the dust boots, perfect!
Enclosed you find some fotos just taken this morning! CR 450 Elsinore 1981 with CR 480 1982 motor, gastank and seat; CR 250 1982.
Some projects of the last years. This was, for example, what I bought as a CR 450, motor 480 passably rest complete crap. Subsequently collected all missing or damaged parts - most from the US -carefully completed and reassembled, the result youve seen above, with intention not fully restored but very authentic now.
Other vintage bikes are Kawasaki KE 175 1979, XT 500 1982, DT 250 1979 and some smaller German stuff (NSU Quickly 1966, Kreidler Florett 5 speed 1967, Zündapp C 50 1971, Kreidler motorized bicycle 1972), missing is my DT 400 1979.
Finally a picture of myself on a test ride with a self developed fuel supply system; enhances the operating distance dramatically!
Thank you for the familiar contact.
Here's the bikes my buddy Dave is working on.
The Rokon is my favorite. The Elsinore is a a complete restore that he has been working on and is almost complete. The mini is a Speedway. Awesome bikes Dave!
