    Precision Cycles?! Where exactly in SoCa where they located? I ask because I lived in Orange County in the late 70's to early 90's and the name rings a bell.

    EC Birt's first shop was on Hawthorne Blvd. in Lawndale. His second shop was on Artesia Blvd. in Lawndale about two block west of Hawthorne. Latter he sold the shop and moved to Florida then later to Tennessee.

    The back of his van with his trade mark "EC keeps you putting" which was also used as the name of his advice column that Super Hunky got him going with Moto Cross Action Magazine

    He was quite the character and had a knack for two stroke tuning. Donny Emler worked for EC and got just about all of his early two stroke knowledge from him that he used to start Uncle Donny's Flying Machine Factory, later FMF.

    9CBD6225-EA25-419C-BDDD-BE750B033D22.jpeg Runaway Train, awesome tank shot! Now I’m missing all my 175/250 MX-2’s /TNT’s, and my hot rod case reed 370. I remember the first blast through the gears on my original 250 TNT like it was yesterday. And that was 1981. Ha. And because this is a picture thread I better slap a picture in here. Oh, and edited to add a rotary valve 292 Ski-Doo too. 3552C4A6-6CBB-42EB-B3CE-B26581E4F5AE.jpeg

    Awesome Jimroid. I love the old iron and old pictures. That’s a cool combination of blue frame and orange engine.

    I really like the look of a blue frame. In keeping with the picture requirement.... 69D1065D-DB85-456D-B1AB-BC81DED31CCB.jpeg

    One coming out of my garage shop soon, finishing up this '80ish JR50 for my son. I hesitate to call it a restoration because it's not perfect but it's been rebuilt where it counts.
