And it has nothing to do with midget porn this time. I'm cured of that...

Picked up another bike. Found a RZ500 that needs some work. So now I have almost the complete two stroke collection.
4 cylinders : RZ500
3 cylinders : H2
2 cylinders : RD400

I need to find a neat single cylinder two stroke streetbike.... CR500 engine in a street frame? Did anyone make a 5 cylinder 2-stroke? Hmm....

Anyone want my wife's bike? I've been trying to get rid of it for a year now... MZ Skorpion... anyone? its only got 3400miles on it.
Please, I need more room in the garage.

now yur talkin'....
I can't imagine a CR500 engine's power... that thing must be freakin scary on the trails in NH. I rode Nate Sanel's CRF450 this summer. Wow. I nearly fell off the back of the bike when I nailed the gas heading up a steep hill. Caught more air than I ever had before, and I was just hanging on for dear life.

i guess you don't know your suzuki line very well.....the ts is the on/off road version of the tm, yeah it's a two stroke and it's a vintage 400 two stroke.......you could just say you don't want it!

never owned a suzuki... don't know much about them. I'm a yamaha guy.

Say, anyone want a bunch of XR75 parts? Would make a good starting point for a supervintage 50cc racer. I need to clean out the basement for the winter projects...

Rob,
What kind of XR75 parts you got?
I've got a frame and an engine that I planned to build another 50 SuperVintage bike from someday.
Legally I could punch it up to 80cc.... can't really do this until Karl and Turk break out their new killer 50's that we've been hearing about for three years but not seeing.

a little of everything...
2 frames, 1 SL70 frame, 3 parts engines, wheels
and misc bits and pieces.


Sold the muffler and plastic last year. I'd be interested in trades...

I got some pocket lint.

That's too serious a pile of stuff for me.

Someone should pick this stuff up. Add a longer swingarm, lace some 17" wheels to the hubs (or use a MB5 disk front) and you'd have a rockin little 50cc SV bike.

Its all 77-78 engine parts, so they have the 5 speed gearbox. The earlier motors had a 4speed.

Someone make an offer... please...
