Default XL250 Identification - First Bike


I have just joined this forum after a few weeks of searching around the internet for information about the first motorbike I've ever purchased; a '76 Honda XL250.

I've been restoring cars as a hobby for the last 12yrs and have decided to try my hand at motorbikes - I needed something else to occupy all of my time!

I am in the process of identifying what I have and have searched around for frame numbers, engine numbers etc. but would like to check a few things.

I have the following;

XL250 Frame : XL250-4007xxx - '76
250 Engine : L? 250E-100xxxx - '73/74 ?
250 Engine : L250SE-530xxxx - ??

The '73/74 engine came with the frame, mounted, I got the last engine as a 'spare part' from a mate of mine he pulled off another unknown frame. To mount the L250SE I need to move the mounts on the frame. I'm guessing it isn't even a motor from an XL.

Any help identifying exact year and model is appreciated, I'll be able to start ordering parts and beginning the rebuild!
