    She's up and running, she was dirty from sitting in someone's barn. Tried to do a vid but would you know it, when I went to goose the throttle she cut off. Out of gas and didn't have any mix on hand. Mental note, make sure to have a full tank.[​IMG][​IMG]

    Haven't seen that seat and gas tank style in a long time. Reminds me of my old 77 Suzuki GS400XB I had ages ago. Those seats were comfortable back then.

    They brought them back about three years ago.
    I wanted a small bike that handles dirt/gravel roads as easily as pavement.
    The Yamaha TW200 is too dirt oriented.

    Don't see many of the street and trail bikes like you use to. KTM still builds them, Honda used to build a good one along with Suzuki. Kawasaki's was so so. Yamaha TW line was more less an enduro with street tires and turn signals.

    I work on a tree farm in the hills, lots of gravel and dirt roads, the initial climb on the main road is 1400 feet in just over two miles, ****ing washboard and I will be relocating to a more rural area, lots of nice back roads.

    Too bad you can't take a Kawasaki KDX200 or 230 and make it street legal, those were pretty good enduro bike, 2 stroke might be a killer in your parts.

    Any other saws under 45cc have an adjustable oiler?

    Vintage saw collectors lounge boy I feel really old now.

    I was lying in bed one morning and I heard this familiar two stroke fin ring.
    Just out of bed threw open the shash and what to my eyes was disappearing was a 84 /250wr Husqvarna air cooled bike the last ac made. It has spunk with a cr cylinder on a wr tranny. I bought it from the kid a few days later and sold it two years later. I have enough parts to build another one. She’s barn fresh, it’s been in the barn for decades, no body puts baby in the corner. I have many husky bikes in parts, 77/cr250, 79/or390, 80/cr390, 81/420wr, 82/500cr, 83/500xc, lq 250/lc500. Plus extra parts to race them.

    You can make it street legal. I had a 98 Husqvarna 250wr on the street. I beat Harley’s with it. She flew. Red light drags

    Turn sinals, brake lights, running lights, head lights and a tag. Then it's street legal, almost forgot, my state, insurance and helmet.

    No turn signals needed here. Brake lite, foot and front brake levers, head lite hi and low beam. I like three beams a day lite beam with leds. Battery for break down lites.
