    :hello: Nice. :notworthy:. I'll PM you with my address. I'll need your paypal account. I'll send the money to your paypal account as a gift that way paypal won't take any of the funds. Let me know the cost along with the shipping. Thanks for doing this for me. I'll finally be able to finish my Son Jareds 250.

    Hi R.J.! Hope you are in good heath during these nasty times. I am currently looking for a new set of tires for my EL252 and I have seen you managed to fit a set of Micheline Commander II on you eliminator. They come in slightly different sizes, than stock Dunlops, which are 100/90/R19 and 140/90/R15. Could you please what sizes you got for you bike? Also how is handling on these tires? Would you recommend them?

    Piece of beauty :) I have read the reviews and indeed they seem to be to most reasonable choice in terms of handling, stability and grip in on dry and wet surfaces. They might not have the typical cruiser tread pattern, but I suppose looks are less important, than safety. That being said, the front tire from this set has 10mm lower profile, than the stock one (100/90-R17), meaning, that the center of gravity might be moved slightly to the front of bike. I wonder if it affects handling in any noticeable way? Did you have a chance to ride it when it was still on stock tires?

    :hello: Our 250 had the original tires on it with only 1195 miles on them. They was way to dry rotted to be ridin on. I couldn't find a 100/90-17 tire. 10 mm difference in height doesn't affect the handling. The speedo is off by 2 MPH.

    You sure did a great job bringing that bike back R.J. I'd say it's one of the best examples around anywhere!

    :hello: Thanks MARKUS. I'm still going to get the muffler rechromed. Also when I pulled the decals off of the swingarm the paint came with it. It's getting powder coated KAW silver.
