Ready for a Sunday morning street cruise
Here is my 1982 rm465. It is the only one I have ever seen. It is a decent front brake away from being competitive with modern bikes. It handles great!
Suzuki RM465 that's undergoing surgery!
Unleash your inner DeCoster!
This has (had) the 345 V8
I bought a 1989 KTM 500 DXC from a friends dad back in 93. Later, I needed a down payment for a car to get to work and keep my new job, so he bought it back in 96. I told him if he ever wanted to sell it again, that I would like first dibs.
He called me the other day. My wife isn't too happy...

2000 KTM 380. I call her "The Beast". Had her since 2004 and just fouled my first plug, never any other problems.
I live at 6200' and ride above 7-8000' mostly - the extra CC's - compared to my 300, has come in handy many times.
1981 430 XC
Absolutely love the bike.
I reread the opening post and it doesn't specifically say single cylinder. Even though I have had my share of big bore singles,I'm throwing my single carb,single pipe twin @500cc into the mix.
If I remember right, wasn't the 465 a worlds better engine than the 490/500? Less pinging issues or some such?
I would post up my Yankee 500 Z, but since it's two 250 cylinders, I guess that isn't "big bore"
I dont know what that is, but it sounds pretty cool. Give us a pic
Yes, pics please. Very interesting bikes; would love to hear about yours.
Thanks for your interest! It's basically two OSSA 250cc engines side by side, they fire simultaneously making it a "twingle". They were made in NY in the late 60s and early 70s. Dick Mann was instrumental in it's design. It has a six speed cassette type transmission with two low gears and two neutrals, one of which is a super low "granny" gear that is normally not used. This one is my bike.
The next pictures are from the Barber Museum. The yellow Z on the sidecover is not correct.
More info here :)
Almost cool enough outside to ride again
Just brought this home- 86 WR400. Previous big bore was a KTM 360 but that doesn't count for this thread. Can't comment on the power yet- ti's a project
So I sorted out the ignition, added a crank seal and got it running. Idles well, getting easier to start too. Installed a chain and took it for a ride.
Brilliant low end, lazy revving, comes on harder on top. Discovered the rr axle broke, made some spacers so the chain won't jump off. Currently needs a rr wheel and brake hub and of course TLC and paint. I plan to vintage race it next year.
