This sweepstakes ended on December 21, 2023 11:59PM EST. We are currently compiling all of the entries and will be annoucing the winner through a LIVE drawing soon! Good luck to all who entered!


MX Builds went 17 years in the past and 20 years in the future with this project!


The bike is a 2003 Honda CR250R, but we modeled it off of Ricky Johnson's 1986 CR250R. In addition we updated the plastics to the 2023 CRF450R model. This bike gives us a modern feel with a retro look! (Yes, the blue fork boots are just for looks!)


No stone was left unturned with this project. Every piece of this bike was touched in one way or another. Plenty of tasteful Cerakote, powder coat, vapor honing, and aluminum finishing. All casting flash was removed on the triple clamps, linkage, kick starter, and brake pedal. All OEM hardware re-zinc plated. Full motor rebuild with DH1 Mods top end work and REM polished transmission. Keihin PWK 38 carb w/OEM pink hoses. Boyesen RAD valve and exhaust flange. We shipped the upper fork tubes to Japan for genuine Kashima coating. Valving on front/rear suspension was done by Ride JBI.


The goal was to make sure the CR250 was built not only to look good, but to run/ride just as well! A lot of attention was focused on making sure the motor, suspension, and controls were all top notch.


This bike was built to compete in the 2023 Broke To Built bike build contest and placed 4th overall.
