    Looks like he has made her street legal. Dunno about it being an 87 however.

    About the 87 R's. Now if Honda had to destroy any 86's they have left why would they still produce an 87?

    My theory: 86's were destroyed because they were in the US. The US was the only Country ( to my knowledge ) that banned the selling of them. The 87's ( 250r's / 350x's ) were not available in the US and Honda wasn't banned from selling them in other countries. Since the US was the Main market they stopped production, and only sold the ones that were already made.

    IMO its just a look-a-like. The only thing that even looks like the '87 is the shrouds and decals.

    Somewhere out there, there is a whole warehouse of 87 250r's and 350X's.

    Well, a guy can dream can't he?

    Seriously though. Don't you think if there were any out there one of us would of found one by now?

    Well, that is interesting. I won't say for sure that it's an 87, but I won't say it's an 85 or 86 either. The only way we'll know for sure is if the VIN is decoded. There have been parts from 87s sold before, so it's possible that the fenders and shrouds are genuine. If they have Honda part numbers, they will be the first real copies I have ever seen.
