this is gonna be fun. 2 newbies building 2 strokes. let the flurry of questions begin! here's a secret. it's not just air/fuel/spark. it's really about timing, squish, and a multitude of other factors. anyone can make a 2 stroke run. it takes skill to make one run well. it's a fine line between running perfect and blowing up. there is nothing like a well tuned 2 stroke. it's a steep learning curve, but at least you're building bikes with easy to get parts. (r5/ds7 pistons are VERY difficult to source. and expensive. i highly recommend you use rd stuff.) you should be reading the gordon jennings book (and the other one - i forget the name) now.

We talked about this, but I can't find my numbers.
I think we said the person with the lowest $$ into their bike at the end of each calendar year get XXX points.
BULLETPROOF - What did we say about this?

-I'm guessing oil feed lines aren't an issue if you run premix?
-Does the 6speed fit in the R5 case?

Have we mentioned, neither of us have bikes yet?
Maybe you could help one of us out, Spo.

I googled Gordon Jennings and came up with the "Two-Stroke Tuner's Handbook" for $145. Yikes.
Who has the pdf?


Just starting to get into this one:




Thoughts that kept me up last night.
- Should there be a penalty for buying an already running bike?
- Should points be added or subtracted for miles traveled to pick up a bike?

nope.

Waiting for my tires to come in
that thing is a beast, doesn't ask for much.
once the new rubber is mounted, I'll have nothing to do but run the sucker.
Even without the tires, I have nothing to do but run the sucker.

Just got the correct points in the mail,
though it really didn't seem to mind the points it already had.

Thanks Al,

Emailed that guy like a week ago and have not received a response

In fact, it was actually that listing that sparked this whole contest -
I showed BP that link, he mentioned he would split it with me
and then all hell broke loose.

It's a shame too, that's just what we're looking for.

Oh well, I thought those looked like the perfect find.... I guess I was right.

I'll keep looking.

Holy Shit.

It's been one hell of a weekend.
Pick up this gal from New Hampshire yesterday, 72 R5 for $350.



Seized. Mostly complete, missing tach and a little engine side cover thing.
Has not been registered since 1979. I think the mileage is something like 20k.

As soon as I got home, I got an email from this guy who responded to a WTB ad I put on CL. 1976 RD400.
1 owner, hasn't been on the road since 1999 - $400. Yes please



Went and picked it up this morning. Real gem, like 14k I think.
Brakes are frozen good. He said it seized on him in 2000 and he stuck it in the barn.
A professor of political science at a local collage.
Actually told me that Jimmy Carter paid for it.
PO got a grant or something from the prez and spent it on the bike.



Anyway, bought the bike of course. Now the really hard decision
of deciding which one I want. I was pretty torn. The R5 seems so
much smaller, which is a plus for me. And I do know and love drum brakes
especially, but I really liked the guy I bought the RD from. Real nice guy.
So I decided to leave it up to my girlfriend to pick her favorite, and that's the one I'd keep.
She took one look at the R5 and quickly said, "oh, that's ugly."



So.

I gave Mr. Bulletproof a ring and told him he owed me $400 for an R5 that's sitting in my yard..
Astute readers may recall I purchased the bike for $350.
Well, I feel it honest to ask a little for gas (we live about 2hrs. apart and drove 200 miles for the bike)
and of course, I couldn't let him pull into the lead with points,
when I'm the one who did all the leg work.

So, we're both at $400 bucks for purchase price.
A point a buck under $500 - looks like we're both tied at 100 points a piece.

Except!

27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000">





15 points for a horn beep fuckers!


Bulletproof - 100 pts.
Bloodweiser - 115 pts.



Please vote if you think I should receive 10 bonus karma points
for picking up (and soon delivering) bullet's bike.
Voting will close in 1 week.
