Nice Bike Jim. That is a 2 stroke? I'll be jiggered.
[Fixed the Pic]
Thanks for fixing the pic!
More info on these bikes at:
Good lord YES. That IS a 2-stroke. And a beauty at that.
There's got to be more 2-strokes out there.
Let's see them.
Oh they're out there... and plenty of us crazies who still love em..
I believe that of all the previously owned motorcycles, the 185 Suzuki was my favorite!! I built a TS185 for TT's back in the 70's. Wish I still had it!!
Awesome bike! I haven't run across much info on these. This is the first pic I've seen of any cool mods. What year is it? Mine has a different pipe, it runs up higher and across the top up by the seat. The fins on the head and cylinder are different as well. and mine has a rear brake rod instead of a cable (I think I could set it up either way). Thanks for posting it!
This was a 1971/first year model. The pipe, head and cylinder are part of a kit that Suzuki put out for racing. It reduced the displacement to 175cc. At the point that this picture was taken, I had a 34mm carb on it and was still messing around with different ignition boxes to get the best HP. It worked pretty and regularly beat the 200cc Bultacos at Perris and Elsinore raceways in California.
I love the IZH! Awesome. Wanna buy another KTM? If so PM me. 85 250 EXC.
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.
'89 xt 600
Hell no, I'd probably give you this one if would come get it.
does it run
I'll throw my Buffalo in here since I haven't seen one yet.
Complete with circa '73 backrest
That is a great looking bike
But I think I have the same radiator in my '72 Chevy...
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.
Those are damn good little bikes. I got a '68 F3 as an around town/backup bike that is dead reliable. Giving it a little "freshening" up so I can run it in vintage cross country/enduro next season.
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
1981 RD350 LC...
1969 YR2 350...
