I was kinda wondering what was going on there....
I own an 83 "L" model. They are a little unique...not a ton of the 650s around. Mine is shaft driven
WhoopsI guess I need better glasses.
Is that really an RZ50 ? Never heard of those , got a better pic ?
GS650s are uncommon. The G was the shaft drive model. Do not remember the chain drive having a suffix. "L" model with shaft drive was GS650GL. Not sure if there was a chain drive L.
I've had a few rare and unusual bikes, but the most unusual one was a one off,kss velocette engine with a Ariel gearbox gearbox mounted in a Ariel NH frame with a BSA 2ls front brake, I road raced it till I ran out of money trying to keep it going, went like stink,had a Wal Philips fuel injector which gave it a power band of about 1500RPM, megaphone exhaust, if it got off the pipe when it came back on you had better not have it leaning over
Whizzer (unknown year, Schwinn frame)
1972 Kawasaki 750 triple - two stroke. Blue wheelie machine
1989 Honda GB 500 Tourist Trophy

Chain drive model is the E. I have one almost nothing in common with the shaftys.
A friend of mine and a partner built a light weight dirt bike in the early? 60s. It was written uo in at least one magazine. Titanium alloy frame, square tubing, two chain saw motors.
I saw the frame into the 80s when he scrapped it out.
Think it was "Ocelot?'
The one I have now and for the last 20 yrs. Moto Guzzi Mille GT. They came in two colors black and red. Maybe 200 came into this country. The importer could never give me an accurate number.
I was reading this with interest , BUT I call BS on the titanium frame. Titanium wasn't even used in aircraft in the early 60's.
BSA made up some Titanium frames for its pro factory MX bikes in '63 or '64.
my harley hummer i've had since a family friend gave it to me for my 5th birthday , i started riding it and working on it at 10.. i'm 32 now and it's undergoing it's 2nd restoration.. , no human could know a motorcycle as well as i know this one... i've had every single thing on it down to it's component parts and have cleaned and cared for every single little part down to the smallest screw .. 27 years of it.. i've never retired it.. ever.. never gone a week without riding it.. in the summer or winter.. rain or sleet or snow or tropical storm or sand storm , she ain't fast but i trust it more than my own damn feet.
Suzuki RE-5. A steaming turd.
1913 Henderson original paint traded on a 1941 Indian 4 now gone.
Was lucky enough to ride a 1914 Henderson cross country last fall and getting a 1920 Henderson ready to try going across again
For a short time I road an ATK 480. It was the days before digital cameras so I'm borrowing this photo from the web.
Nothing like a turbo going to full boost!!
