    I only use facebook to harvest the occasional photo.
    One thing you could ask you though is where is do you know where the techgp site, as i used to have it bookmarked on a previous computer but i cant find it now.
    I have tried reverse searching but i still cant find it.
    there was a heap of photos on a webpage but i have no idea where it was.
    they had some wvery nice pics of cagiva and patton and other internals

    WilDun,
    Thanks for kickstarting this thread back to life again!I check it daily due to its interesting info..The LiquidPiston 70 that Frits posted seems pretty lame per 2 stroke scooter standards,but the concept is very good,perhaps it could be polished into something useable in the future...

    I haven't come across a Techgp site on Facebook, but below are three groups that can be interesting from time to time, with links that should put you somewhere in the middle of them.
    2 Stroke research & development : https://www.facebook.com/groups/6710...6515293761964/
    Motorcycle suspensions and kinetics : https://www.facebook.com/groups/moto.kinetics/2388419701417059/
    Experimental Motorcycle Association : https://www.facebook.com/groups/105572222948183/

    But overall Facebook is terrible: not chronological, not searchable, and lots of idiots posting rubbish that has nothing to do with the groups they're contaminating.

    found this site with that image on it

    if you have some of the images, you can google with "search by image" to find sites that have the same image.

    Thats what i meant by a reverse search, but for some reason it will not trace back to the original site.
    Most are on Heron suzukis site along with some of the pictures and scans i have made myself.
    I cant even find the site on the WayBackwhenmachine. that i use to track down defunct sites.

    I can't believe how many people are still around here still looking in - The thread has lasted quite a while!

    Probably there is a limit to what can still turn up but it would seem that there is still a lot of interest.

    None of the machines which appear here should ever be forgotten, successful or not - they were all the result of a lot of passion, hard work and genius.
    It is a pity that many of them were only unsuccessful because the people with the money didn't recognize them because of the fashion at the time and buried under flaky glitzy fashionable stuff which attracted the "look at me" type people ....... unfortunately these people were the ones most easily parted from their cash! - and unfortunately that's the way of the world!

    They must not be allowed to disappear completely and after all, a little trickle of almost forgotten stuff is all that is needed to keep this thread alive1

    Seen the twisted V-twin thing done with Harleys, Hondas, Guzzis and a couple of people were planning to try it with Aprilias, but not seen one of these before.

    At first glance I liked the layout but then there is the effect of the torque when you open the throttle!- the knees behind the hot cylinders maybe sometimes gets a bit of a pain. Of course Honda and Guzzi were relatively successful, and hondas 500 was a very long lasting machine and was greatly sought afterin London (as the preferred courier bike!). Not sure about all the conversions though, but great projects no doubt!

    Very interesting stuff!
    Anything engines / mechanical is good here - the 'two stroke thread' is really good, but when this sort of stuff goes on there, it is so overcrowded and busy with performance stuff that this sort of thing will often be overlooked - that is really why this thread came into being ( to allow the more mundane but also very interesting stuff to be noticed and appreciated - not allowed to eventually disappear !).

    Yeah. it's more for glowering at than groping at - can't say I'd lose my head over it!
