Enjoying this little British gathering...
Im currently in Mongolia heading towards Russia, but I'm from London, which is where my 250 is

Good luck with the rebuild, you'll be fine. I took my bike down to the frame with no real setbacks, just many many gentle learning curves.

Have fun. I have done that sort of thing many times. Even built a couple of cars from the ground up. Built a VW bug starting with nothing but the floor pan. Unfortunately I am now retired/disabled, and can no longer do that sort of thing. But it is fun to watch someone else do it.

When doing a total teardown, I usually put the small parts together in ziplock bags and label them with a felt pen. On large parts I might not recognize later, I put a piece of masking tape on them with the name of the part. If I run into something unusual, I make a written note of it. Sometimes parts don't go together the way they look like they should. Pictures and drawings can also help. Writing down the order of disassembly can also be helpful. There is nothing worse than getting almost everything back together, then realize you have to tear it all apart again because you forgot a part.

It is all in bits already lol
But from the start if I could put the bolts back on when part is off I did and parts like the break calliper etc... are still complete including the pipe and fluid holder etc... so I have made it as easy as I can and when ever I'm putting back on I will clean and replace anything I can.
Iv budgeted about £300 but I think I need to raise it as already with seat lock tight chain sprockets etc... I'm already at it but I can easily go over so not that bothered.
I will just need to sit my full bike licence later
