ts 250

I had an early 70's ts 250, ran the pizz out of that bike on Senator Highway in arizona to our gold mine at 7,000 ft. A 40 mile dirt comute over two mountain ranges. The shift lever and brake lever were welded on.

Great Bike. Those big 750's are possibly the most reliable 2 stroke roadgoing bike ever built. Yuoi can't kill them. I know of one with 86,000 miles on the original crank, seal AND bore. Really amazing bike. Mos of those miles were done in recent years on the good oils though.

1st bike. Bought it new for $295 in '69 and rode it over Wahington, Idaho, Oregon, Montana, and BC with camping gear in a backpack. Nobody ever told me it wasn't a real adventure bike. This picture is from about 1996 with over 25,000 mi. when I gave it to a buddy heading to Alaska. It was still running strong.



I eventuall upgraded to a proper adventure bike.

And now for the other end of the 2-stroke spectrum (because I have no pictures of my 72 H2 Kawi)....

Nice and warm when setting up at TWO.


Not so warm getting up for the Rally...


Rally? What Rally? The True Grits Rally, 2005!


Yes, it's an adventure getting out on public mountain roads & highways with 150 fifty cc machines all at once - but like the poster says, It's NOT a Race!


Even though it's not a race, we did have Speed TV there...
Brian Drebber & crew.


How often do you see a street legal 50cc machine with not only the ADV sticker up front, but a route map holder lashed to the fairing stays?


I miss that little bike - sold it earlier this year

Damm That looks like fun! I have a buddy who goes every year on his YSR with a yYZ80 conversion. He clocked at close to 90 on his GPS. You need to make it up to Deals Gap next May on that H2. About 100 of us do a big 2 stroke ralley up there. Year 8 coming up.

Sorry, I didn't write the disclaimer about the H2 pics clearly at all. I had that one back around 74-76 and sold it in summer of 76 to finance a move to south FL that never materialized.

But yep, the True Grits Rally was a blast. Even on that little tiddler with stock gearing I finished the 100K (64 miles) road course in something like 2 hrs 04 mins. In the middle of one of my photos you can see a rider who came from Japan with an interpreter and one of the limited production replicas of the 50cc factory racers to ride in the rally.

.
the thing has never run. he's got over 600 hours in machining in it and needs to find a starter with enough oomph to crank it. hand held electric type ala drag bikes, dirt track Harleys. the guy is not a young man and eats sleeps and breathes Maico's.
