The 76 250C with rear drum only came wit wire wheels then 77 came the d or DX as it is sometimes called with wire wheels and rear disc as standard alys where a £30 option which was a weeks wages then, only when the e came out was the 250 standard with allys which all 400,s had allys which makes the wire hubs rare and valuable i got this bike with a set on but the rimes where very rusty the set that are on it came from a friend in Germany in fair condition at a very good price, i had a 250D like this in 1978 myself new, about a 100 photos of the resto here
