Little-known today and overshadowed by its off road-only stablemates, the 250 Enduro may be the best CZ you never heard of. Described by no less a dirtbike authority than Dave Ekins, then writing for Motorcyclist magazine, as a "motocrosser turned streeter," the dual-purpose 250 used the frame and engine from the company's previous-generation motocross model, albeit with the two-stroke single retuned for torque and working through a wide-ratio five-speed gearbox. With quality shock absorbers, decent forks and Barum trials universal tires, the CZ handled well off road, too, not always case with other dual-purpose bikes of the era, which were usually more street-biased. Said Ekins, "It has some features the Japanese aren't even close to – fenders and rear shocks that work and a chassis straight from the MXer." England's Motor Cycle News was even more demonstrative: "The nicest machine CZ has ever marketed in this country, and possibly one of the best trail bikes ever."

The Mork collection acquired its matching-numbers 250 Enduro with just over 1000 miles clocked. In terms of bodywork and running gear, it is virtually as-delivered from the factory, even including the original Lucas turn signals and tail light, usually casualties of the bike's first real trail ride. Under Mork's ownership the CZ has remained in storage.
