Where have all the 2 strokes gone, long time passing...

Recommended Posts

today I was back in time on my 1975 MT250 Honda, 72 Suzuki TS250, 74 XL350 - what nice rides - each different. 

 

The TS250 was torquier than the MT250 but the MT 250 was just plain smooth.... 

 

I know the EPA killed two strokes long ago, Wish they would come back - but at least I have mine from back in time.

Only photos, toolkit and patch left. Not really sure of year manufactured, but owned 50cc Bridgestone street bike in 1969 and 175cc Bridgestone street bike in 1970. Had to mix gas and oil on the 50cc. Not necessary on the 175cc because it had an oil injection system (separate fuel tank and oil reservoir). 175cc was dual cylinder.

I have a 1979 Honda CR250R that I still race vintage with, just got a 2002 Honda CR250R and I am in the middle of fixing it, had a few problems but most of them are fixed now.. 2 strokes are just plain fun to ride..

Me and two other old guys got in a thirty mile woods ride last week on two strokes. A 10 yr old KTM EXC 250, an even older, but capable KDX 200 and me on my one owner '80 VF 414 Montesa. We all had a great day. We all have plated 4 strokes D/S's at home, but it was fun to get out on the 2 strokes.

There are alot of 2-strokes around here still racing too. Im right on the Ohio/Michigan line so between districts 12 and 14. Every week it seams like more and more are appearing. People are gettin g tired of those $2000.00 dollar four stroke rebuilds.
