    :wavey: bike crew

    1975 GT550, 550 cc 2 stroke with a set of expansion chambers, rear sets, aluminum swing are with a mono shock, and an r1 tail section.

    I'm pretty sure this will turn into a money pit by spring.

    That's what I said. :noes:

    Even if it's a 40 year old design, that's going to be like hopping on a brand new 600 with twice the maintenance.

    I'd love to have a two stroke bike. Not sure how I feel about that tail though.
