Classic Motorcycle Mechanics  |  December 2018  


It’s funny how certain motorcycles really get under our skin.
Or in the case of a two-stroke, under our skin, fingernails and into our lungs: if there’s a sweeter motorcycling smell than a freshlywarmed up two-stroke, I’ve yet to smell it.

It’s as good as cut grass… My own two-stroke experiences were limited to a 125cc learner bike (ahhhh the KMX125…) and an RD350 F2, but they left their own indelible mark on me: I always have two fingers hovering over the clutch, for a start. I then got into four-strokes and never looked back, but perhaps I should.

People like reader Tim Partington and our own Andy Bolas love their two-strokes. Andy has a large number in his collection and this month we see his rare-ish Yamaha R1-Z. Tim, meanwhile, tells us the journey to creating the beauty you see above. For me the strokers I miss most are the race bikes.

Even today in a time of 250bhp four-strokes with anti-wheelie, traction control and various engine maps the brutal simplicity of a 180bhp 500cc two-stroke with only your wits and right wrist to control it for my mind can’t be beaten. As a spectacle, we will never see their like again. Racers think so too. CMM’s Stafford show guest Terry Rymer hit the nail on the head: “The Lucky Strike Suzuki RGV500 was the most awesome bike and the one that wanted to hurt me the most: think of 180-190bhp in the weight of a 125 two-stroke, but a beautiful bike to ride when it went right.”
Dedicated to the later classics and Japanese machines, Classic Motorcycle Mechanics has it all. Every issue is packed with pages of road tests, rebuild guides, 'Street Specials' reviews, news and events.
