my one that got away
Sorry i was in the other camp with the super six well the hustler.
A popular learner bike (round our way at least) of the 250cc days was the Honda 250 Superdream. Not the cheapest of the learner bunch and a lot more pipe and slippers compared to the manic 2 smoke offerings.
Had my share of 250n's as well. I used get the 250 and swap the engine for the 400.
Still on the 2 smoke theme, albeit a lot tamer than the more sporting offerings, this was my first bike, only bought as a cheap commuting alternative to the V12 Jag I had at the time, if only I knew what it would lead to!. September 1981 and the rest is history, as they say.
Just like this one.....https://www.thebikespecialists.com/...heffield-43b7fe63-9b9e-4049-9742-c35103cd06e9
Maybe a stock RD 400 I had more than one RD 400 ported and polished with power pipes and properly set up that would take out GS 750s from the lights and couldn't keep the front wheel on the ground in 1st and second The X7s were quick though and I could see them being stiff competition for the LC crowd I moved on to big four strokes in the early 80s before the Liquid cooled 2 strokes really took off.
some of my best memories are blasting around upstate new yok on a suzuki 250 ...im looking for another 2 stroke right now, i like my street cup but i miss the "flickabilty" and smell of klotz oil .another 250 would be fine but i'm looking for the 350 . thanks for the look back ..beautiful ride
moto2imports.com ..has some nice 2 strokes out of japan ....really nice machines
My other bike
1982, my favourite bike, would still have it if it hadn't been stolen in 1987...Simply brilliant, did everything you could need from a bike especially the important thing... Putting a big grin on my face everytime I rode it.
Clipons and rearsets too!
Very nice and happy memories, except for the getting stolen bit of course.
Beckett reeds, micron pipes, no back mudguard and Avon Road runners.. And it was only 3 months old in the pic.. I knew how I wanted my LC from the first day it was delivered.[/QUOTE]
I like your bike. Can I know the feautures?
Non-Standard mods include: Allspeed exhausts, Hytec reeds, RamAir filters, boost bottle, vented discs, Pro-Am belly pan, Fastec fork brace, steering damper and Renthal bars.
Colours are a bit washed out in the old photo, but loved this bike and wish I still had it
Stan Stephens stage 1 tune, Pro-Am belly pan, Rickman fairing, Mel LeMoto Ace bars and rear sets, air fork conversion...
Very jealous of the OP's 350!
My RD250LC. Had it for a few month, inbetween big bikes in 1986. Micron pipes, Ace bars and KR paint job. Good fun.
yes, they are in my inbox, some amazing bikes well above my budget at this point.
