I do like the pictures on the Bike of the Month Contest - December 2021 . Was that '85' made after October? If so it's probably a 1986 model year. There were supposedly only 10,000 of those made & a much smaller number of them left.

There were no white Limited Edition Rebels. It appears a PO painted the tins, added Limited tank decals, and put them on a Limited Edition bike. Nice looking bike BTW.

You're right! Seems someone else posted pictures of a white limited edition 250 a while back and it took your reply to remember it. Definitely not a run-of-the-mill model! Did you buy it in the UK?

As an Asian bike, it probably has twin carbs. IIRC, the rear brake linkage and possibly the left footpeg/shifter bracket is slightly different than the other market 250s. Other than that, I'm pretty sure everything else (engine, cables, frame, etc.) is the same as North America and European/UK models.
