UPDATE:For more on this bike go HERE
In honor of the Kawasaki Triples 2 stroke gathering in Deals Gap this weekend (which unfortunately I can’t make this year) I’ll be a little heavy on the 2 stroke posting this week. So with that in mind here’s another fine bike from our roving correspondent Charles Lathe
I’m attaching a couple of shots of a Suzuki I saw at a European bike get together in Raleigh.
We nipped into Florida on 17 before turning north on 95 headed to St. Mary’s, Georgia for Easter and enjoyed the best weather we’d seen for a while. Spring is threatening to establish itself here, but it is dragging its feet this year.
I love these sorts of builds. “Radicalized” 2-strokes!

His original E-mail about the CR500
This is my CR500 AFC Supermoto 79RWHP. I mostly run it on the street but for fun I took it to the drag strip and ran a 12.4 @ 101.4mph 1/4mile. It didn’t have a soft enough tire to launch hard but still fun beating Vrods and cbr600s!
It’s a crazy fun bike. Street titled and all led lights.
This will be up for sale soon to fund a Kawasaki H1 drag bike 🙂 the wheelie bar on it is from the H1 project haha
And a nicely modded GT!
Just gorgeous! Thanks to Trevor Denning.
Here is two of what I consider the best two strokes ever made. The GT I have owned for 26 yrs the RG for 18 yrs. Neither are standard.
Folks who know me know how much I love old 2-strokes and this is one trick little scoot!
Thanks to George Wenman!
