    Well check my 500 build thread. We'll have that 2 stroke ride this summer.
    I've been told. Dreaming`s free.

    Anyhoo. . .


    17yr old dirtbike, sadly unreliable from new, let's just say the 4 strokes weren't their finest hour. I actually saw one going on a recent ride, first time in well over a decade.

    Google some of the guy's bikes - they're up there with some of the best customs you will see anywhere. That is particularly nicely done IMO and its selling for the price of a new Triumph Street Twin.....

    The market seems to be tolerating these bikes. Looks like you're just going to have to accept that like Harleys, people want them.

    A 6 litre tank, gravel tyres, a slow engine and parsimonious filtration, I just don't see where you'd ride it. I don't drink coffee with the oiled beard crew, flat tracking isn't really 'a thing' here. I mean why?

    So the first photo was from when it was originally purchased (not that you'd hardly be able to tell - FFS) and we are now playing spot the difference.

    There are people out there with sheds full of bikes that never get used, but yeah its hard to make the connection between gravel and 6 litres.

    Gravel 1/4 mile drags anyone?

    I don't have 15K for that anyway. As customs go though, that is nice.
