    That's about all the stroker stills I took at Broadford this year.

    But this is me on my RD. I caught the Norton (amongst many others) on the corners and got passed on the straights, by almost everyone.

    Did okay on the one he had though.:clap

    I took these with FILM. Can we still get that stuff?
    I even processed and hand printed the B&W ones :eek1

    Lost skills. Maybe my skills weren't so great that it's not much of a loss.

    This is my very own two stroke race bike. My very first race bike!
    After nearly 40 years of riding, I finally got one. Because my missus said I could!

    [​IMG]

    Not that I've raced, or even ridden, it yet. I scored it during the week. It's not been ridden for a couple of years so it will be interesting when it does finally get back out there

    Not quite a TZ but I have a 91 TZR 250 3xv1 and have exactly the same problem with the crank, spare cranks are hard to come by! Japan has stock of complete new units, just have to figure out how to ride without an arm and a leg!

    Well this sheds some light as to why I see so many race bikes being converted to highly modified RZ 350 based engines. While they will give up some performance you can at least get spares like cranks all day long in the aftermarket. I suppose you can thank the Banshee fanatics in large part for this.

    T500 modded to TR500. Pics of it racing above.... beautiful bike!

    I thought it was Chris Bradley's bike but it just looks very very similar... (as all the TR500 replicas should look alike!)

    What gives it away as a T500 based TR replica? I know a little bit about Yamaha twins* but buggar all about much else.

    This one is in Oz. And that was a correct statement in April, 2012.

    *just enough to make an idiot of myself.:lol3

    Awesome bikes thanks for the pics guys. I cant even imagine unleashing a 750 2 stroke, the load you'd have to be putting on that motor to get it to smooth out. I'd like to try for sure but I think the seat would be striped & wet after.
