    Splendid. 2 strokery heaven.

    It may be a change in my perceptions but on other forums & in the bike media I'm seeing a lot of reminiscing about 2 T's.

    A valveless revival I hope.

    Just one question though, is this for all two strokes, or "old school" two strokes only?

    A 2 stroke is a 2 stroke... Old or New!

    Hi Mike,

    Please don't let the kick start flop back on its own like in your video, its cruel and unusual punishment to your Bultaco cases! It will break and cause huge problems for you.

    It's a child forum of Old's Cool, so it should be about classic smokers. Sadly, there are no modern 2-stroke street bikes around anymore, so the MXers should go to Thumpers. Yeah I know, thumpers are considered 4-strokes.

    Sue the thumper mods, not me. :lol3

    Damm.. I hate to exclude ANY 2 strokers but you make a good point. This IS old school... Fuck it grandfather in whatever's left. The KTM 300 and whatever remains.

    OK let's see it this way. Since 2 strokes are a dead design (face it guys :cry ) they all are old school just like an Enfield.

    That is pretty much what I thought, so that is why I asked.

    Now the owners of "modern" 2 strokes will not only have to deal with idiots invading every thread about two strokes in Thumpers and saying crap like "2 strokes are not thumpers! it is forums like this that are making idiots think that any single cylinder bike is a thumper! Thumpers are losing there identity because of the internet! And I am going to cry loudly about it when ever anyone asks a two stroke question in thumpers! I am going to the gym to sniff the exercise bicycle seats! Premix is Evil! Waaaaaaa!!!", but now when we ask where else can we ask the question, they will mistakenly believe that it should be posted here, and then there will be another shit fight trying to get it through there heads that it still belongs in thumpers...

    So can we send these guys to you to set them straight?:wink:
