    I hope whatever they buy/build is in British Racing Green with gold lettering.

    Beautiful bike. My dad had a few water buffaloes in the late 60s early 70s.

    Thanks.. I bought this one mostly finished, then spent another 3 or 4 grand on it. It's a 76, sort of. The guy built it out of parts from several bikes.

    So many questions and statements
    -where can I get a fuzzy helmet?
    -you really do meet the nicest people on a Honda.
    -why are they using a clapped out smoking 4 stroke on TV?
    -Mr Mcfeely's son may or may not be a real life mailman, that got his mailtruck stuck in Yinzerville not far from my childhood home.
    -How did I miss this gem of a clip being that it was filmed in Yinzerville?

    I strongly miss the multi-cylinder 2 stroke street bikes.

    There's still RZ350s around out there, and that's a motor you can still do a lot with. The thing I liked about those, was they are stupid easy to change your line in the middle of a corner with. They feel pretty light and easy to flick around. Better chassis than the older RD stuff.

    Doesn't that motor share a lot with the Banshee quad motor?

    That's where the quad motor came from.

    Dumping it already? I'm figuring out I like mine best on wide open easy tracks or courses...you know the kind MX'ers like.

    Too bad Banshee quads go for stupid money. Seems like there could be a number of chassis in the sport bike world that would work nicely with a motor swap.

    You put a smart carb on the 125? I thought it came with a good carb?
