I did a partial restoration on mine. It's really interesting to see the differences between your 76 and 76 that we got here in the US. Your bike looks great!

The bike in the picture is my 1982 XT250.
It is an American import and was once orange

Ok that explains it. I thought the engine looked small and the leading axle forks and mono shock.
