I've ridden one. It's an amazing bike!
I still ride the hell out of this 96 kx250
My dad still has the 86 500 2stroke. What a weapon. So much $$$ spent on the beast.
Love the stance!
They looked better in white than they do in orange
Bet it would blow off most of the 4 strokes at unadilla -
If it ain't orange it's a lemon 🤔
I raced one in senior class for 2 years
Comme le Yam jaune blanc et bleu mai celui g kiffe c le blanc et rose de 92 de tout bonté la moto de segnieur mon copain

They were def good looking quality mx'rs, blue engine and blue tecnosel seat, 87? My mx 125 when i was 14, 27 was my race number, back then ktm was still a rare bike to race in Scotland, 1987 white power suspension upside down front and back, disc front and back, beautiful bike, i bought this from mickey oates old shop in york street glasgow, put it on the passenger train to take it to get work done by them, days when we had freedom, didnt have a van at 14!!They were best looking even upto today didn't like left kickstart, liked eating water pump seals, but another i should kept!!🙁
Paper mache head gaskets ✊
Awesome, I would love to try an old MX
KTM are awesome machines. They are souped up from factory. Best of parts!

No anorak but a red paddock jacket with yamaha in white across the back.. i loved that jacket & wore it to its death 😊😊
Mmm, premium nylon, just would not clean up very well!
Anorak yes but with a bellstaff👍
I did... buggered if I can find a picture though!
Had ty first bike but no anorak
Ty50 my first bike then the fs1e .

I had a dt 250 1 same low front guard.
My first bike, in white. Swapped my drum kit for it!
Ed Schulz I had the same one and so did you

Had the 175 version in gold
Went work on 1 years ago.
Had one Reg was BBX 989 V
Yes my first bike
My first bike, in red. Not fast but fun.

Always wanted a 250 to keep my, now gone, 400 company.
In 1981 I paid $200 and sold for $200. Perfect condition. That was market value.
Still got mine!😎
Had the S1 in 1972 pearl white lovely bike
Owned 3 kh250s including one with the Ian Dyson body kit. Went onto GS 1000 Suzuki after them. Needed something bigger for touring abroad
Had a blue one 1977 I thing , was always feckn playing about trying to get the bloody thing on 3 , but when it was it was good ,, fun bike tho
Best colour too 😋
my first 250 then went suzuki t 500
This was mine in the early 1980s, an Ian Dyson body kit, the R plate on the front is for restricted to 45 mph which everyone in Northern Ireland has to display for one year after passing your test, car or bike
Aye, had most of the 2 stroke 250s at the time but kh was my favourite, mostly due tae the sound and the 'interesting' handling!
No almost got one in 1980,white one, sadly got turned down for finance, I rode my Rs100, a few months longer then bought an rd250
I had one in the 80's, loved it. Had a seized cylinder when I got it, but once fixed was very reliable. Rode it 250 miles to the 1981 TT, thrashed it round the course and rode 250 miles back in the rain and it only killed one plug in the whole journey. Later on, I put 400 barrels on it.
Had three of these in the Late 70’s on and off and a 400 which I paid £150 for and sold for £50
Loved mine, so much better with original pipes, part of their charm
Brother had one great bike lovely sound but my RD 250 was a lot quicker sweet memories of my fun days of the seventies then got sensible and got a Honda 550 k3 in the late eighties do I miss those days you bet 😃💯.
Heres mine 1976...happy days
Ya had one in blue. Absolutely loved that bike 👍👊😎
I had one in 83 ,full FLF body kit in green and white with Allspeeds and bellmouths 😁
250. Lovely sound to it. 😀
Yes a brand new KH 250 in 1977 in blue.then a kh 400 in 1978 from KKK !!!! Ken Kay Kawasaki in Luton 😃👍
Very cool I remember years ago a neighbor having one with homemade pipes sounded like a swarm of bees coming down the road
My first bike Jan 78 luved it especially with the spannies rear sets and ace bars👍👍👍👍👍👍
Borrowed one to go to Donington while my Elsie was having its engine rebuilt. not as fast but had great fun on it it.
Hours of 'fun' setting three ignition points 😬
I had the 75 s1c 250 which was way faster than the kh wich replaced it.
#FBF I could only dream of owning a helmet that cost £90 back in 1976 😲 - Who remembers John Brown Wheels then? 🤔
Please LIKE & Share our page for more like this 👍 ... See MoreSee Less
Landed up buying one of these instead. A nava enduro ( much cheaper than the griffin at the time)
I always wanted a griffin with the mesh vent visor, Came close to buying one for my first full face but my birthday money wouldn't stretch that far ( had already bought my ft buckleboots)
My first lid was a Kangol Apache... was shite, but given to me. Bought an AGV KR2000 when i progressed from the fizzy, was a lot better. 76 quid as I recall.
Black Kangol Kesrel with a tinted visor. About 76 to hoon around on my Fizzy. Couldn’t see a bloody thing at night.
I had a Kangol Steven Parkinson
Always used AGV helmets they’re comfortable and ahead of their time I have a valentino special at mo with the pilot visor it’s absolutely superb
I had a bright yellow AGV Ago.... absolutely loved it....and my RD....still have the RD but the Ago went s long time ago 🙁
Stadium Achilles for me - it was horrible 😁
The first helmet I bought when I got my first bike was the AGV Ago replica. Loved wearing that, in fact I wore it when I first started racing. Cost £38 if I remember right. Still have it in my loft!
If I could turn back time, I'd buy a dozen Sheene Reps!
Had a Griffin helmet, very comfortable with great vision and less prone to steaming up!
Got a leather lined Cromwell Duke from them . Twas the first full face with a pre moulded visor. Cromwell as used by the RAF .
That 90 quid one was a copy of nikki lauda's helmet
Bloody hell I didn't pay that for a bike back then, I had a Paddy Hopkirk Agordo
I had the Ago, great helmet.
When I got my 250 RD i brought a Kangol black knight lovely comfortable lid and it saved my life when I landed head first on a cats eye after a fast high side on a patch of diesel 🤪
My first full face was a orange bell star,bought from guy called Shane hearty in bromley, London.
Bell Star 2 for me from Pidcocks in Derby, £60 in ~1981 was nearly two weeks wages! Didn’t JBW have a branch in the entrance to the museum at Donnington Park for a while about then?
My first helmet in 1976 was a stadium project 9,with a duck bill visor, for scrambling, then I got a full face Nolan n29, when the RD days began it was agv.
I had the AGV Ago in silver ! 😁
Was based in my home town Warwick.
I brought a white Griffin helmet from them & a Kiwi much later. Fibreglass vs Polycarbonate... Guess which was most Comfortable!
Mine in 79 was a Griffin Speedstar with black visor. I couldnt afford the Simpson Star Wars...the dogs blox at the time
Great bike ..poor brakes had a lot of fun on it !! My first Motorcycle 😎😎😎
Yes, mine was the early model with drum brake. Great sound!
After a test ride back in '72. wanted one of these really badly. Impressive on so many levels. Waited too long as all the left over 550's were sold out. Ended up with a '72 waterbuffalo for $1450, still have it.
That's we're Yamaha got the ram air for the heads on the Daytona special 400.
Beautiful machine! Look at that symmetry. What a wonderful sound they make, especially in tunnels 😀
Yes had two plus five gt380 and a 750 now got a gt 380k love Suzuki triples.
Suzuki GT 550 E in Black 👍🏻
Very nice Drew! 😲

Had 1,, so much fun on the road. 4th gear throttle only front wheel elevation was just to addictive, sliding the rear in the wet was also a hell of a lot of fun. It was basically a 175 road legal motor crosser,👍😁
I bought a 1982 full floater model back in 1998 put engine in off road buggy its had the guts thrashes out of it and its still going only suzuki i have ever owned im pretty empressed by the pe 175
Never owned one, but I've ridden a 250 and a 400 version. Yes they were great bikes.
That was my first bike PE 250 bought it from a guy got it from a police auction was used as a police desert bike it was a blast
I remember I used to see one that used to go almost every where on the back wheel from Sutton to rosehill
I had two of these, great bikes👍
Have one sitting in the shed!
I did have so much fun on my 400
My old '79 PE175 being raced in 1986...
I love Rm that I do not like
They seem very underpowered compared to a Yamaha it175
Yes i had one cost $1,270 wish i still had it!
Yes I had one in the 80s, a wolf in sheep’s clothing awesome bike
I used to bunk off school and borrow a PE 175 off me brother that one had a blue seat can't remember what year but first proper dirt bike I ever rode
Stunning, had one the same year👍
My cousin had one on the Big Island, Hawaii.
Used to ride a friend’s in 81. I had a 76 Dt 250 at the time and we used to swap
I just love 70s & 80s 2 stroke trailies, I'd own that no problem!👍😀
Had one, great bike!
I had this bike when I was 16 and I blew it up racing my mate he was on a xl500 he couldn’t catch me
What a jump in past 🙂
Yes, had one...got me interested inEnduros! Would love another!
Good off road bike 👍

Cans too small for me, but looks lovely and it's got nice headlight brackets. Nothing gets on my DD's than wa*k cheap brackets on a decent build
Forks are the wrong way round

My very 1 st bike to learn to ride payed50 ponds for it sold after test for £100 after that the bikes got bigger and faster would like to try the100 mph batams that were racing in the 59/ 60 .
First bike BSA 125cc. Loved it, reliable transport. Ģreat in snow and ice. Lightweight feet on the ground and keep close to the edge of the road.
and occasionally if you was unlucky sat at the traffic lights open the throttle and the bike went backwards.
Got a D10 , mechanically sound but totally original , 52 years old .
bought mine for a £5 note when i was 9, had a knobbly back tyre, burnt the clutch out learning gear changes 😂😂
Went to Copes's on the Hagley road in Birmingham to decided which first motorbike I was going to buy, the salesman rolled a BSA Bantam out the door at which my father looked suitably pleased as he rode BSA through the war, I threw a leg over it started it up went 15 feet and it promptly broke down, the second bike was a Honda CB175 Super Sports which started on the button thanks to electric start and once I returned from my test ride I made HHA 971L the first Motorbike I ever owned, the picture is not my bike but identical colours. Don't think my dad ever forgave me.
Rode one every day i was a despatch rider for the Post Office 1965 had weather guards on the front always scraped em on every corner sparks flyin off everywhere,, rain snow ice mail had to get through guess what i got banned 24/10/67 then another ban mine 31/10/67 was only 16,,,,good old days,,,
My first bike at 10 years old! Taught me so much on how to fix bodge to keep running!
Upside downies in 1948. gotta love German suspension.
My 1st bike.
yep front wheel full of hay. 125cc i think.
Doing one up myself in aus! This thing is an absolute gem looks beautiful
Have one in the garage lol
Still got my D14/4
My first contact with bikes. Remember these looking huge 😲
One of the best bikes ever built
What’s wrong with front forkes
Twin bruv and I learnt on one at 8.Never forgot it
Upside down forks.
Certain age🤔 I'm 30 and I've ridden one 😂
Alan Attwood another one
My friend owned one back in the 70s. It was the first bike I road. Fast little cycle.
Always wanted a Super Rat!
Wow this thing is in the next town over!
Classic name. And from memory the MX version was called the Combat Wombat.
Used work at a Hodaka dealership and raced motocross on Super up Super Rat. Raced enduros on a 100B. Best time of my life. Now I have a 100B and a 100 ROAD Toad. Been looking for a Super Rat for years.
There's a brand you don't see everyday! Growing up, my neighbor across the street had a Hodaka 100 Steen. It started this whole fascination, so today, I ride a 2005 Dyna Wide Glide carb'd. What a lifetime adventure, due to these 1 wheeled machines!
I was lucky enough to work at 2 Hodaka dealerships In mid '70's. I uncrated, assembled, and test rode. Funnest job ever!!
Own two Wombats. One is used as an almost daily runner.
I had a 68 Hodaka Super Rat. Funnest bike I ever had !
I owned this model real sweet till the Elsinore came and it was game over
I had a 100cc Dirt Squirt in 78 in Ninilchik Alaska. It ate shift forks but was reliable and fun!
Love that bike, a lot better than the ace 100
Had a Dirt Squirt 100 fun bike to play on but wasn't a big fan of shifting set up had a few issues with it.
John McClean woo hoo
My stripped down ACE 100 from back in '72.
Made in India?
I had a friend who had several Hodakas back in the 70's. Noisy things...when they ran.
My Wombat in 1974
I had an Ace 100. Got my first ticket at age 12 on it for riding on the sidewalk circa 1973.
My Hodaka was an 80cc. It was yellow and had jx on the tank.
This brings back memories I had one in the 70s
Don't know what year mine was... First year of mono cross suspension
Dan Grimshaw 🤔 think mine was a 84
No, but I had a 1973 XR-75 modified with friends' help. Could compete with 'em, or be in front, depending on location. But not on the straights, where their 5th gear would pull away.
I had a C & G models, loved them both, especially the G, it was fast.
Yz80j much bettervthan the h
My first bike. 1981 yz80h. Slightly different to this one. I think it had rounded number plates
Had a milk crate to get on mines 😂
My son on his 1988 YZ80 he loves it. Hasn’t stopped smiling since he got it.
Restored this still got it love it
I had a 77 yz80 for being a 80 it would put alot of my friends on there back if they wasn't care lol miss that old bike
This was my dream bike growing up! Unfortunately never managed to get one
These were very capable machines👍
Had an 87 that we rebuilt when I was young, they were a blast!
Still have my YZ100
Best scrambler ever
Had 1 great wee bike .
Still got one keeping it for the grandkids yz 80 L
We had 2 when we were kids, a 82 then 84 model I rebuilt
How to start a Honda CR500 (or any big-bore 2-stroke motocrosser for that matter!) without breaking your leg. As Emma demonstates it's all about technique, not brute force. (That said - I still usually end up towing them behind the van 😉

Sounds Ace 😊
James Barclay Paul Barclay
the absolute worst bike to try and kickstart are the ones with forward kickers. fuck those assholes hurt when they kick back
Easy when you know how here’s mine
I owned one. It's not a difficult task if you're not stupid. Stupid people should not ride CR500's.
Go ride it and restart it hot. I had one it sucked if you stalled it.
Emma I want you to start an 82 KTM 495!
Decomp mod done to head. Lol
she's done that before!!!!!!
Cool she can drive slow and careful. Yawn! Boring!
Kawasaki 900cc THE WIDOW MAKER!
Mine,earlier (1972,J model with the 4LS front brake)
Had one identical. Traded it for a Moto Guzzi California from Sports Motorcycles in Manchester. It was a great shop. Wondering if they are still in business.
Wow, looks amazing. Mine was a P reg, same colour but never as shiny as this 😲
Can it be shipped to Canada during the Covid restrictions? Gorgeous bike
Dose anyone know the colour code for this bike we have same colour tank at work but can’t find right colour
Absolutely beautiful,had a lovely blue one myself should never have sold it ,always was going to be a classic
No !!! 🤣🤣 get a grinder and chop it up , like I did to mine !! 🤔🤣👍😈
The kettle nice bike in its day back in the early 70s
😛Love those buffalos
I have one too in Australia 👌
Can you ship it to Australia?
had a shot on this @ 1978 a beast would love one now
I had like this one 11 years. Model 1976, red.
I had a metallic orange one in the days of Barry sheen
One of the best looking examples I’ve ever seen of a water bus
What is the asking price.
I had one in the 70s cant afford one now !
Looks new nice job
That's a bloody nice bike.
The water buffalo
Stunning condition! 👍
Wow! Good as new! 😮 👌🏻
We're those fast?
Think yours was a 'Nifty Fifty' version JB
Yip I had that bike it blew up the premix stop working had to push it home 15k spewing I was
My mate had same colour 175,we replaced the piston and rings ,cross hatched the bore took the glaze off and it never properly bed in ,just would not run in ,one day all of a sudden it did and threw him off in a culvert .
I had a 175 mx loved it
Great colour scheme 👍
Dig those factory radial finned heads! Old school air-cooled, finned cylinders always appealed to me, although more seizure prone. Prettier, nonetheless!
125 Still can't ride
had several used to take the black box out of it how it could not be started
I never knew DT 125(most pop) had a lot of cousins..
I had a dt 100 a dt125 and a dt 175 back in day
In fact I had two 😁
Yeah had that back in the day lol
My first bike...did with it 1500 km trips as if it's a street bike 😄
Dito ko natutong mag motor sa DT. ❤
Mario Javier Herrera Mora
My first off road bike, it was great and had loads of falls , but I’ve learnt a lot 😝
Yes I did and loved every minute of it
Pojie Si Pickers
Had the 175
Such a cool bike i had a 1980 175 with a custom made expansion chamber went really good
Yep, nearly fully restored
Great fun! Only going up in value .
Still have one 👍
Still have mine but it's rough as shit 🤣
there is one for sale close to me for 500 euro in very good condition with polini kit
got this last week
4 grand....seriously 🤔
Great little bike
J avais exactement la meme avec kit 154cc polini dessus 😍😍😍Patricia Roux
Have 2000 plate exactly the same
John Mc Cann
Back in the day, when working at Aprillia, I remember our top techy man threw a yamaha 600 single in one of these. Awesome. I mean, the full power 125 was brilliant, but with a 600 thumper....
Have 2 one 94 extrema sp and a 95 extrema with 257 engine which has 65 hp. Was used in super karts to say its mental to 130 is a understatement .
Superbe ... !
They were thirsty and not the quickest but had tons of character and sounded and looked fantastic ☺
One of the best I've owned.. handled like crap tho
Didn't realize they made an in between displacement! Those classic '70's bikes, had a size bike for just about everyone brave enough to have a go! Sweet, man!❤
My one, bought off of a mate. KH250 with S2 top end, I did a tidy and respray - those pipes were darn loud!
Nah, Yamaha RZ350 all day 😉
Whoww, these are rare in this state.!! 😍
Sam Pittaway ❤❤❤👍👍👍🏍🏍xx
Wish I had kept my one now
Never seen a 350 had the s1 and 500 mat had 400 and 750
Never herd of it. Very cool. I wish the has sold those in the us.
i own the only green framed model in Australia , 1988
I sold one earlier this year
There was a few Jap grey imports ..
I built it.👍
Great bike hired one in Greece in the early 90s
I have the yam... Dt200wr. Based on enduro
As a matter of fact I have one. Goes better than the kdx.
I had one, very trick bike for its it’s age,
I had a tsx125, but wanted the tsx250. Didn't know they made this model
Had one, awesome fun
I had a 92 in 🇨🇦, lots of speed but only 37 hp
Owned one had the 92 model
Had the 125 very fun to ride
With those forks??
Never seen one had the KMX and MTX 200's so if I'd seen it I Would have had it.
My 99 rmx 250 looks almost the same
Never seen one , looks great
From an AP50 to that exact model and colour Loved it
I think that was the best look for the old coffin-tank RD. Just edges it over the Kenny Roberts yellow & black. 8-|
'White Heat' it was my favourite RD Block pattern. closely followed by King Kenny Yellow and Black. Yearned for an RD 400 back then but didn't get around to one.
Das ist meine. Ich liebe sie in schwarz.
I do like an yellow RD
Had a silver one with spoked wheels there was a waiting list for mags brilliant after coming from a fisser another classic
Had RD250E in blue from new in the late 70s great bike always thought the yellow colour was the best though.
Jumped onto this very model from a fizzy,loved it,great fun to ride all the time
Best Yamaha colour full stop
Have fun , I missed the fun word out accidentally.
Amazing how many of these beauties are still around, long may it last. One of the greatest ways to have with your trousers still on riding RD's and similar.
Are you sure it's not an F in pictures.
Had 1 in blue and 1 in silver wish I still had them
Ma bro had one the ezack same with pipes on it o that wee 250 could go.
Like my rd250e back in the 80s
It's very rare indeed. A bloke near me had one for sale some years back. I briefly considered buying it. I wasn't sure what I'd do for parts and I decided not to go for it as it needed a few bits and pieces. It was a lot cheaper than this, but didn't look as good!
Oooooooo... I definitely need to buy a lottery ticket this week 😁
What a good looking bike.
Transported this one last year, lovely bike 👍🏻
For being a 125 cc .....it sure has huge fins on the head !
Now that's a new one on me.
Rode one years ago. Beast of a bike.
Bought one new in 1978. Raced it one season, about beat me to death.
Had a white one 👍
Wow hold tight.
76 or 77’ ?
Good bike handle well.
Had one good ride
Remember this beast Chris Lawn
Aw so pretty 😍
I remember them with no back fender
I had one of these tons of power.
I had one of these tons of power.
77 at youngest 78 had a square swing arm
How much cost
Steel swing arm 1977
That was a twat of a bike to jump on.
I had two or three of them I wasn’t impressed
Same engine here in the nz made "farmbyke" in the early 70's. They were made by the Suzuki importer of the time, Colemans. Now very collectable. Originally called the mountain goat with Suzuki 80 motors, then Kawasaki 90 motors , then the TC120 Suzuki motor
That’s most minimalist exhaust I’ve ever seen on a 2 stroke... not much of an expansion chamber.
I had a suzuki TC 185 with high and low ratio gearbox.
I had the Beamish Suzuki trials, looked smart but weighed a ton!
The motor was from the Suzuki TC120. The same motor was used in the NZ made "farmbyke" in the early 70's
What model street/trail of Suzuki also had the high low gear box?
I owned a TC120 when I was 14 in 1973, high low range 3 speed box
What is this ?
I had one, I gave it to my friend for his museum.
🤔Never seen or heard of that make.
I have seen the hi & low range gearbox in Suzuki 125s , in Australia
You could get a GT500 for price of a GT250. In last month's of them being sold. As advertised in MCN.. a real bargain....
Proper looking bike .
1929 Scott Flying Squirrel 500 - A sporting watercooled 2-stroke twin which is 91 years old - the LC of it's day and a dream bike for me. Do we like? 😍
For sale on eBay: >> ebay.to/2DCcCLM ... See MoreSee Less
I remember watching them go around that race track out Barwell way Leicestershire, they sound great
1929 and water cooled. Super bike and super ahead of its time.
Is it me or does that advert smell a bit? Distinct lack of information?
My dad owned one,he used to tell me all about his antics on it.you had to manually pump the 2stroke oil while on the move
Inspiration for the Yamaha RZ-350?
Never heard one, can someone put a vid up please? Rickover and full chat 👍
Inspired the much later Silk 700s.
Darin Mills , seen this ?
Jo Fox How about one of these?
Proper bike solid hand built of proper metals,
Dave Rowley ❤️
Back in the 50's my neighbour had one . Never forget the sound .!!https://youtu.be/zxFBPkEabPA
Previously mentioned somewhere that the Suzuki kettle was the first water cooled 2 stroke. Now this is around 50 years ahead of its time. 😎😂
I'd love one of these, but I'd have to put a set of expansions on it
Made in saltaire near Shipley, West Yorkshire, the original factory is still there.
Thanks you classic 2 stroke's as I said a proper bike and looks like there some still about and used.
My grandad had the same bike well almost , a 1929 Flying Squirrel but a 600.
The R D of yesteryear. I'd love to have one.
My dad rode to Switzerland on one of these
That realy is gorgeous😍
These sound awesome
Had a ride on 50 years ago love a two stroke .🤠♿
Have a 85 250 love it getting it dirty is what it is all about but it seems like the people behind me are the ones getting dirty because it has major balls handles great and throws a monster roost
had one brand new from woodings wheels in towcester raced it hard for two seasons not the fastest 250 at the time but definetly the best handling and totally trouble free
I had an 82 first lc loved it ,put adjustable rear struts to stop it digging in on the front end , wish i still had it !
I bought one of these freaking rocket ship
Had one on the road! Freequent 100 mile use unharmed, but needed to vertualy kill it every mot lol ☻😉☠🏴☠️
Brilliant bike wheelie mad!!!

Wasn't the 1982 the real game changer from Suzuki?

First bike i raced was a 83 250 & funny the last was a 92 250 👍
MAICO SPIDER IS THE BEAST.

Big old school shit is mint
John Mitchell tidy min... get it boucht
Michael Mike Allport one for you
Dion Lynn 😎
I had a two stroke Kawasaki , 100cc great little ( dangerous ) thing!
If I recall that was the Yamaha Canada colour scheme for Steve Baker and his mighty TZ750.
I like this a lot if I had a spare £5 1/2K I go for it
Very nice indeed good sir
A great bike, one of Yamaha's best.
Essa moto parece uma rd 350 com o kit da rd400 mas fico muito bonito uma bela máquina Ass carlos
Must be a USA import looking at the tank, still great.
Mark Theobald stunning
Jo cheez bachni ho oss ki he picuter diya karo ager yhe bachni h to es no par cal karo 03048801918
Always love the RD400👍
Bring em back!
You can buy a bigger barrel and piston 🙄
Never New rd 60 was made
Never heard of one before.
RD 50 was the first motorcycle built in Brazil. 1974
A friend I worked with at a Honda kawasaki dealer had one with a yz 100 engine in it. It was fun!
I did 50 000 km on my rd 50 74 to 80 best 50cc eaver
Never, my brother had an RG 50 about 35 years ago.
Tivi uma da mesma cor em 1978 gostava muito fico,na lembrança Ass carlos
Didn't even know there was one
A new one for me
blimey looks cool
Never seen one. A mate had a black RD50 DX, he was gutted when a gang of us, all a year younger, bought secondhand FS1E's and he couldn't keep up.
Didn't know Yamaha made RD's this small.
Only in photos.
Had the fizzy 50 rd 50 rdmx 5o as well and 80lc yam rd 80 mx
First for me
Never heard of it, until about 5 mins ago! But here it is in the flesh. Even sounds the part. 😉 youtu.be/TpZar71B3Ck
Had a 78 RD 50 great little bike. Altered the Reed valve and sprocket ratio. Good for 50mph all day.
Never seen one, wish I had .
Fantastic bike I had a couple of TS 100, & a TC100, still got a TC100 engine dual ratio complete in garage, was going to put it in an RV 125 frame but that was many years ago still got RV125 too 👍
My cousin had one when I was a kid and all we had were Hodaka dirt squirts..🏍
Had a white one off road 1981 loved that bike 👍
The best looking TS in my opinion
Had a 1975 one in blue loved that bike
First bike in 76
Alun Thomas 😡 maybe I should have kept it 🤬🤬🤬
Had a orange one, brilliant bike , never let me down once.
Love that colour love Suzuki.
Had an orange one in '76..lots of fun to ride..
Yip had one!..great bike real wheelie machine!..👍
had a red one and traveled all over the South Island on it in the early 1970s
had a wreck with no brakes and exhaust, great offload fun
I'm fixing one up, slowly finding parts to complete it then restore it.
Never saw a green one. In my town they were all orange.
Orange M plate for me. Modded baffle! Fun on the dirt and dumps like Beckton
Had 2, amazing little bike.
Had lots of fun on my mates ts 125 happy days bring them back.
No but had the 100. Great fun. 😊
Got an old ts 90 yellow aluminium tank and wheels
My buddy raced one and it blew up ever few races, lol. Totally FMF kitted. It was fast when it stayed together. If I remember it had a porcupine head and a snail pipe instead of a down pipe. Could be off a year but don’t think so.
Amazing how much these bikes have developed over the years.
i had one with a gold DG Head..and my father stripped and sprayed engine red and fitted red fork gaitors...i loved that bike
I owned the '76 version, same bike - basically the same from '76 to '78.
Great looking bike but looks about 5 years behind a same year YZ.
Yes.. dumbest thing I did was let it out of my hands. Stored it at my sister and it disappeared ..
C'est quoi ce silencieux pourri 😖😖😖
Do you have any XL 125cc 250cc Honda's
Possibly the most pipey mxer I ever rode, that was some powerband!
Think I had a 1976 with the gold DG head and pipe.
Raced one of these back in the day what a screamer 🥴
Muy buena moto
Rode a 250
Richard Lassiter very nice! Wish I still had my 74.
Was my first proper moto after mini bike Thought I was the fastest bike in town back then
Gilvano Johannis heb ik ook gereden is uit mijn tijd🤣
I had a 79 model, but yes wish it was with me now
I wish I still had mine !! This is a great example and looks totally stock, now if you can just find a FMF porcupine head and the red FMF pipe ! Scott Sanderson
Yup, had one of those, although that ones got a weird muffler on it. Always had to be careful of damaging the under pipe. Awesome powerband.
Yes , had two of them. You don't often see the original muffler. Nice.👍👍
Had two of them first was the old grey tank couldn't kill em👍
Sleek machine, nice too see one in yellow.
I have a 380. Great bike!
Aren't these the same plastics they used on the ATK 260lq only in white? Looks familiar
I got to take one of these for a fang when I was just a boy on my XR100r.... from then i knew there where great things to come with growing up
I had a 97 360 exc
I have a 1995
Gs 250 Bj. 1996 👍
🤔...Nah, not in Suzuki colours anyway. 😉
Had a road registered 2001 380 SX, she was quick!
Ridden a 360 and a 380SX
Had one many years ago lovely 🤪
I'm from Oz do you guys never come across 92 WR 250cc Yamaha 2-stroke
I got a 97 it's my best friend
Adrian Blake the mint version of my old girl
Had a 97 360. Great bike, strong engine, but don’t shut off the throttle at high speed! Steering damper should have been standard equipment, 70mph with the bars going lock to lock. Saw God that day.
Scott Rourke this dude thinks this is as sharp as a cr5.....
Is it for sale?
Check out this incredible 5-cylinder 1250cc Kawasaki 2-stroke. Built by Allen Millyard and based on a 1974 H2, the bike is now owned by the Kirby Cramer collection in sunny Southern California. Here you will find out more about the construction of the motorcycle and hear its unique scream on a ride past. ... See MoreSee Less
switching to full synthetic injection oil will pretty much eliminate the smoking and "runny nose" symptom.
Allen Millard builds some crazy bikes, the mans a genius...
Finally a 2 stroke that doesn't sound like a lawn mover,... I'll have one. Also love the police smoke screen, they'll never find me. 😄😄😄
If I could pick a motorcycle, no budget, it would be this one! What a breathtaking machine ♥️
A guy I did a repair for in Hazel Grove had a 5 cylinder based on 2 KH400 engine. Don't know who did the graft but was seamless. 3 pots'll do for me.
Ummm pity he rides it like a harley ,!
I always had a dream of making a V8 out of two 500 gamma engines n putting it in an old mini...... 🏍 🚗🦾💥 🤠
There are still some extremely bright men in this country ❤️🇮🇹🤠🏍
Five is right out!
Odd way to kick start it.
Allen Millyard's YouTube channel is incredible
Millyard is a fekin legend🤪
Sinc that up boys lol. Still badass though
Funny to see one of those go around a corner
Nick Hill look at this beauty
Allen Millyard another one of your builds mate
David Coone have you seen this
Michael Baxter 2 stroke for the win

In my early morning wake-up fog, I read the location as “Milton, New Hampshire”. The town right next to mine (in the USA). Then, my fog cleared... 🙁
Its not too far from me, think I might have to take a wander over
Had the same bike.
Had one a 74 Lime green
Had a 78’ 1000 same color.
Had the very 1st one of these off the boat in this country still have bill of sale and spare set of keys bought through Jimmy Hand Dudley motorcycle dealer it was on a stand at the Midlands motorcycle show at Thimble mill baths Smethwick b'ham in 1972 and also pictured in the Motorcycle News,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,
My favourite H1 colour scheme - the painted guards really set it off ☺
Had blue h1a.
try and go around a corner believe me its a flexy machine
Very nice, my dad has one same colour😎
Be still, my heart!
In the States we got the RZ 350 in 84/85 complete with KR’s signature on fairing. I owned one. Wish I knew enough to keep it. One of the last 2 stroke road bikes sold here.
Seen on the back of one like this.
Un ami a là-même mais c'est la 500 rdlc. Dit le petit canari 😜👍🤣
The best color !
Adam Denny Brings back memories of your beast
Guaoooooo yamaha rd 350 ypvs guaoooooo
Aqui no Brasil ficou conhecida como viúva negra
How much? I sold mine for 1100 quid 20 years ago, was glad to get rid of it! Not many wanted 2 strokes, the shock and forks were shot, brakes crap,usual things, and it wasn't a Brazilian piece o' crap either...
I had the blue one ..... Hated it....sold it..... Wish I'd kept it and sprayed it these colours 😠
Those bikes will move ! I would love to have one !
Had a white red and blue model , sold it for £800 back in the day .......😪
....i had the blue one.....loved it 💪😎
Love powervalve and lc 2strokes the best
Never owned one, but i once had the privilege of almost getting my head taken off by a tail pipe as it fell off one speeding down the M5 and missed me by a fraction following behind.
Had a 1kt with RGV rear end , TZ seat & a TZ250 W fairing!
Had one and an rd 250b before that ,both brilliant bikes
Had one the exact same
I had one, front sprocket seal came out followed by the sprocket and shaft and then all the oil, all this at 10,000 rpm, too much drama.
Nice bike - is it a better bike than the RGV of the time? I doubt there’s anything in it to be honest.
Yeah had an '87 Gauloises one, put 10k miles on it. Power bands on wet road markings. 😱
Never had one, but do like the quarter litre bit discription.
My cousin John had one just like this. It went like stink!
Wanted one when I was 15 ! Still want one now I’m 46 !
Yep, from new 😎 Best 2 stroke I've ever owned !!
Yes back in the day.Cracking little bike
I had an Oakley version
I did indeed!!
2 stroke 😍...
Mine was a 3ma reverse cylinder 89 model
Loved the rds
Second best bike
old school 2 stroker yamaha
3xv bloody fast
Yup but not for long
My first bike exactly FVN 640V Andy Matthews ha great memories road it twelve months of the year ,few small Mods ,HD Chain and sprokets, Fresco silencer, pirelli 400 class little bike loved it.
My wife had one and it was dark blue it was a great little trail bike I love that Enduro
I had a '72-'73 CT-175 for a little while. A friend sold it to me for $40, but didn't say that his Boss still owned it. After ordering some parts, getting it running, had to return it to his Boss! Bike had a couple hundred miles.
Drove it a lot of time.... it was the perfect gateaway bike from.the boys in blue... i was at that time 16,17.... no driver licence ..no.reg... just fun🏆💝🥇🤣🤣😎🍻
Without doubt the best small trail bike ever made.👌😉
Had one of these when I was 14 if was an old bike when I was 14 but the power band in this is unreal I was even smoking brand new Xr Honda 200 s lol and any 125 2 stroke it was a blast
My first bike, a few models later though.
Brought exactly the same model and colour new in 1980, with a few mods I raced it against the IT's and PE's of the day and it was pretty competitive. They still look great 40yrs latter
'78 one in Red and Black, bought it new and cracked the throttle open riding it home - I needed to feel power after 14 months on a TY50P. Front wheel came up about 3 inches, I was a God!😂 Don't bother with the should've been running it in lecture either, I was 17 ffs😁👍
I have a dt 400 been working on
Is that an original pipe or aftermarket? Here in Australia I've only ever seen the skinny style.
Treated mysen to just one more
The DT 250 was a great bike back in its day
Love my DT
A Blue then a black one loved them. 👍
I had a 91 rt180 I believe to be the same series
Have one in storage needs love and care ,
One of the best duel purposes Yamaha ever made..
yes great funbike
The aussie ones were dark green
Always wanted one. 250 was shite
I was 17 had heaps of fun
Mark Couzens could think of a better use for that engine....
You need an Iron Man suite to ride that beast. The 250cc was fast enough, and this thing was outrageously quick, and some would say too quick. 🤔😳
Best year in my opinion. Especially when I put a paddle on it and would go spank all the banshee,'s at the dunes. Wish I still had it.
Cr 500 fourth gear
My first big bore CR was a 87. My heart starts racing just thinking about the brutal acceleration.
Kick back from kickstarter snaps legs! Badass
Bet you’re sorry to see it go if I had the money I’d buy it myself lovely looking bike
Yes please I’d love to thrash that beast 👍🍀
The original weapon! !!😉
Nice I can see that hitting bid of 5/6 grand
Elle est tt simplement magnifique
Yeah would like a try at it!
With the rarest CR500 engine (1986) 🤤
Had one, it tried to kill me every day 🤣🤣
Had one raced it
i can smell the hospital in this pic.
Il mio sogno erotico più grande era un Fifty TOP con motore RGV500... ma anche questo 💦
Not a problem the pleasure would be all mine.
Anyone want a kidney ?
Love the 500's
U can do the same thing on a 450
It’s a red devil for a reason
How much is she
I had soo much fun on mine back in the 80's with my mate Robert Pepler!
Roger Welch,remember this bike.
Like my old one, but much better condition
I had the 185, good low down grunt, never let me down, oh until the gear lever broke off and I used the front brake arm off the drum as it had the same spine, then it was interesting with just a back brake. Whey hey.!!!!
I had a TS100. Shit bulid quality in comparison to the Yamaha DT's.
There’s a ts185 showroom condition army local bike shop been sat there a few months
Ezequiel Martin Poblet
I had a TS125 - excellent bike.
Earlier model was far better
Wow, are they really fetching that sort of money?
Absolutely love it
Looks lovely mate
Hated the 250 185 was better
Anthony Keaton remember seeing these brand new lined up inside the door at drake and bailey years ago?
Love it 👍❤
Geoff Edwards for old times sake!?
Still got ts100 till this day first ever motorbike George Perrin (dad) taught me how to ride on was only about 6 had to run alongside the bike when I came to stop couldn't reach the floor😂 😍🙏
Still got the 1995 125cc in good condition but i got lazy and havent started the bike since 2014..we have this bike since 1995, will try to use this again for short rides around town next month maybe👌👌
I has a ts 50 xke, loved it wish i still had it now
Great wheely bikes . Loved them
Nope! farm bike

Loved mine, great bike went well and handling was great too wish I'd kept it.
Had a MK1 WD. Only worked when you rung it's neck 😁. The V was such a vast improvement. But loved it while I had it.
‘‘Tis a beaut 👌🏁
Look at this little beauty not seen one of these for a long time
Beatyfull bike !!!
Ugly looking bike are they actually sort after?
My first bike when i was 15. It wheelies very well 😄😄
Ian Owen 😍😍😍😍
Cool bike right there.
Pretty damn fast too
My dad had a 1966 Yamaha YM1305 that’s what started it all.
Those machines had a terrific, howling exhaust note.👍
I had one. Purchased in 1968. Very peppy compared to the YDS3 I had before it. From memory they had some subtle tuning done with the piston tops and skirt length. Also lower gearing. I don’t have any photos.
U remember Merv Trolling Victoria st Friday nights lol 😎
Yes, I test rode one
Wow I love it 😍
Had the model before that YDS2
I’ve had this for 20 years. Hard to believe you could pick them up for £700 back then!

Just like The One I Had....Back in The Day.,❤️
Mine was dmf 144v - where are you now I wonder!?!
For that money I’d rather find a tatty rg500
Best colour red mag wheels
It’s lovely but £12000 😲😲😲
Thing of beauty that is !
Most fun I've ever had on 2 wheels
£12000 ? Get a Ducati for that
To be fair you could brush paint an RD400 in matt black and it would still look mint!
How much ????? Need a lotto win best colour scheme
Used to have one not quite so tidy, sure wish I had it now!!
Unfortunately they fetch ridiculous prices..so gorgeous tho
My exact bike , beautiful
Yes, white and red is the nicest.
thought the E was out in 78, ?
Had a Sreg same colour. Stonker...
Is it RD or the KTM s/d 1290 ?
Had one it was awesome
Just like mine wish I had it now
