1982 TZ500J (inline 4) in a Spondon frame. Originally all 4 cyls faced the same way. A two stroke tuner by the name of Hummel reversed the outer two cyls to achieve a little cleaner pipe fit and also made cylinders to his design at that time. Those same cyls did away with Yams YPVS exh valve system yet made more power.


Pipes should be completed in a week or two.

Fuel economy can be an issue, but reliability isnt if treated and maintained properly... tehy actually kind of like to be run hard.

Got to sit on one of these (the bike, not just the engine,smartass) as a young tike!!! Dad had the V-8 on loan to him (unbeknownst to the big-shots at Moto Guzzi) for a little 2-bit show at the Teaneck Armoury in NJ waaaay back in something like 1968!

Ride On!
