    Lunatic the photo of your bike didn't show.

    And I didn't know that about PA and 2 strokes. Not real common out here in phoenix. I love how easy some of the old 2 stroke bikes are to work on. Cassette style transmission on some for easy gear changes. No valve train. Need half the cc to go fast. Just plain neat.

    I seen ktm is making fuel injection 2 stroke dirt bike engines now, or at least in development. Could be promising for us that are still into 2 stroke bikes.

    Would a couple 2 stroke dirtbikes count for collection pieces.

    My first "big" engine bike was a 1970 Kawasaki KD350. I loved riding that bike. Before I left for basic it broke down and I couldn't find parts. While I was gone, my mother made sure it disappeared. It sure was fun to ride.

    LOL. you don't have that problem with 2-strokers if you understand the black art of jetting along with how to read spark plug shells and porcelains. but in my youth i carried a wrench and plugs with me at all times till i figured out what the hell i was doing.
