Lightbulb Lets see all the 2-stroke street bikes

Like the title says, if you own a 2-stroke sportbike post some pics/video.
I always loved the rs250, nsr250's tz's and most any rr type bike of the 80's-90's.

Maybe a little to "old school" for you,but here's my little 1972 Hodaka Ace 100 Model B+ project!
This is going to be set up as my own little "Track-day and local parade" bike when it's finished. I want to ride the crap out of it instead of it hanging on some wall or sitting on display with a light on it in a corner of the house.

I was getting the bike running again after it had sat up for some time. I was carb tuning and went on a short test ride "just down to the end of the street", so I didn't put my gear on. Fuggin old tires weren't up to getting me stopped, which I should have known. I got a broken shoulder, collar bone, 6 ribs, collapsed lung, and about 120 staples in my head(I'll spare you guys the pic of that). I usually won't get on a bike without all my gear, and the time I did it bit me hard. I did get a helicopter ride out of the deal. Would be nice if I could remember it, though

Glad your okay. Shows exactly why I haven't tried my bike yet. Combo of no gear yet and no experience, and cold/darkness has kept me smartly off the bike for now. First warm day once I get my gear (ordered from NewEnough) I will probably try though.

That sucks, at least you're ok. How bad is the bike?

Bike isn't too bad. I had the fairings off because I was tuning, so that helped. The main things are a bent clip-on, shifter, busted radiator, and a scraped exhaust. I guess if you're going to crash, might as well do it on a bike that's a PITA to get parts for No, I didn't have a helmet, and let it be a lesson to the rest of you!!!!!
