Default restoring/rebuilding 1971 Suzuki T250

Picked it up for $250 it had been sitting since 1982 indoors.

Kicked over and looked complete so why not. Got it running after cleaning the carbs several times, relining the tank and some other minor repairs. Was about ready to take it on the road when the right cylinder took a dump. Apart now waiting to be bored and locating piston and rings for the ol 2 smoke.
