  1. Hi all, new member here.
    A bit about me, I have a teenage son and I am hoping to start a little resto adventure with him.
    Looking to buy a couple of old DT250's to restore and ride together.
    Hoping that this might be a source of enjoyment and father son bonding like it was with my father and I.
    Looking forward to any advice I can get from fellow members,
    thanks in advance

  6. Welcome to NR gasbag69gasbag69. My dad I tinkered with cars when I was younger, great bonding as you know. Once my son is a bit older, I will do something similar to what you are planning.
