OK smitty, lets see some pics of the Yamaha 350 2 stroke... .....

Is that what I think it is, in the last picture? Did you take that bike away from a baby?

Hmm, I just realized that Smitty's is the same gas station that I stopped at in Carbondale a few weeks ago!

I was on fumes after driving from Connecticut and too stubborn to stop at a gas station on the way like my wife told me to. If it wasn't for the long down hill coasting I did to Smitty's I would have run out of gas....lol

Did someone say Two Stoke :o Koooooooooollllllllll, here;s mine that I just picked up

I owned and rode lots of motorcycles was great fun but all ended 24 years ago when I broadsided a left turning car got hurt pretty bad......... anyway the thrill to ride is back so I bought two project bikes just to get back in the saddle. I pick up this 1975 Kawasaki S3 400 its a two stroke three cylinder kick start bike quick little bike for its size

Image

While chasing parts for the S3 I came across this 1974 Kawasaki H1 500 its also a three cylinder two stroke this one is a real hot rod , Kawasaki came out with the H1 in 1968 it became the legendary "Widow Maker" on account of its rapid performance and poor handling capabilities , should be a fun in town bike when brought back from its current state of dormancy....

smitty, I would like to see that Yamaha 350 go through the gears!! :shock:

I really like my 2-cycle outboards from Japan!!!
They are built very well, have lots of power and are tough as nails.



This is a pic of my Tohatsu 40 hp 2 stroke.... :roll: 8-)

I had over 20 at one point ... but have been selling them off to pay my bills now. :roll: I had 14 BW80's at one point. :D The RD's will stay come hell or high water though. Got a Harley Night Train that I've put 200 miles on the past 3 years. I should sell it, but the market is overflowing with Harleys. I won't get crap for it, so might as well keep it. NICE KAWIS BTW!! :up:

And nice Tohatsu!

I had no idea wtf you were talking about -- I had to stare at the pic for a minute. :lol: That's the wife's '85 Suzuki FA50 moped with a basket mounted to the back. The container in the back is a container of honey, filled with Kano Kroil. ;)

Is this a 2 cycle thread?
I just finished a rewire-and-new-hose job on the 45 year old Partner P85 chainsaw that I posted in last Saterday's Freddy's coffee thread.
No more shocks and 'nitetime Lightshows' when its started ! :dancing:
I don't know how this saw ever ran at all... I counted at least 6 places where the wires were chafed thru, and grounding out on the chassis, including one INSIDE the Points cover where the end of the wire's eye connector was grounding out against the inside of the cover ! :shock:
This sounds like a line, but I actually had to "clean the governor-bearing" :angel:
It was full of crud and allowing raw gas to dump into the throat.
Good for another 45 years :D

Nice! I love seeing the old ones keep on keepin' on. :up: Built when pride took precedent over greed - which is why they all still run today.

Good choice with the Tygon line there. ;) It's much better than the crap that's out there nowadays.

Yep, they don't make 'em like they used to! They don't make ANYTHING like they used to :mad:

TYGON, good stuff! Thats all I use these days. I love it! I buy it by the spool. I got 6 or 7 different sizes on the shelf right now.

I hear ya on all counts!

The only thing I don't like about it is the fluorescent green color. Reminds me of some punk kids car from the 90's. :lol: I have a few sizes of Tygothane that's 100% clear, but it's not really meant for gasoline like the Tygon is. Worked great for oil lines in the RD. Now all the lines are bright red from the Amsoil Dominator I run. 8-)
