So I’m picking up a 86 rebel 250. The bike is super clean but has this one issue when shifting into third gear. As if the gear is broken or missing. It just grinds like crazy. You can skip third and go straight or fourth with no issues. Any idea on what might be the issue?

Welcome to forum. It could be the selector sharft is dirty remove cover plate and clean sharft gets fowled up with chain oil and dirt then lube the sharft in cover plate and refit cover plate and see is selector is working . If still not getting 3rd gear may bee damaged gear or selector fork in side gearbox
