Did someone say TS's???????

I have a love for them. It all started with this girl. A 1979 TS 250 that I bought for $300, put a plate on it and beat the tar out of it. Awesome machine!!!!









And one of my all time favorites:



That bike was a ton of fun. But like everyone, one thing leads to another. From the 1979 TS 250 I moved onto a 1991 TS 200, another street legal TS 2T. This one being liquid cooled and mono shock, was better for my abusing behavoir:









Even my 4 year old boy likes it :) :





Ok, Ok, I will stop there.

Wait, one more of when some buddies and myself with on a trip:



Well, as you can tell, I like my TS. But I got really pissed at it earlier this year. It seized on me and locked up while going down the hwy once. No bigge, slap in a new pistion and away I go. But then, on the trip in the above pic, it ate a power valve. So that was it. Instead of rebuilding it, I threw in a KTM 250 EXC engine, making it into a TS 250 KSM.

The video that 2Trider posted above is the video I made of the build. Here is the final product:





So, yes, I am a TS addict ........

For links, here is a link to ThumperTalk that is all about the TS 200:

And if you want to see some videos of both the '79 TS and the TS 250 KSM in action both in it's new form and old form, check out my YouTube channel:
