TWO-STROKE TUESDAY | NEW-AGE LOOKING KAWASAKI KX250

ROBERT REED’S NEW-AGE LOOKING KAWASAKI KX250

“I have owned lots of KX250s in my life, but I have never owned an L series, and I was intrigued by the new TX Race plastic conversion kit for the 99-02 models.  I also wanted to do a SSS conversion on a KX.  I found a rough 2001 KX250 and brought it back from the dead.  I had Possum Valley Racing make this build come to life.  I ended up with a completely different, and much more modern-looking and feeling bike.” —Robert Reed
