Just got a 94 ex250 despite my mom crying and threatening to kick me out of the house > got it for a pretty good deal (my dad went with me and he used to ride so it said it would be a good starter for the money and only had 9k miles). Had a couple cracks in the fairing with no lower cowling and a terrible custom all black paint job from PO. Fiberglassed the fairing cracks on the inside and stripped the paint. Plan on repainting the tank and fairing white and getting a white cowling. I had a kx60 when I was in 6th grade and haven't ridden since (18yr old) so I really don't know what I'm doing but I've never met a person in the biker community that isnt helpful so I'll keep ya updated on how the renovations go and post some pictures/questions as they come up!
