This used to be mine 🥰
Alex Olsen Racing 2024 pit bike
Still hawe silwer one...
Was gonna get 1 bitd, but apparently getting spares was a nightmare. And that was coming from the shop that sold em
115cm³ two cylinder engine. Never seen one btw 😅 125 cm³ has Piaggio/Gilera (Hexagon,Runner) engine but I'm not sure.
Never even seen one. We only got wimpy scooters in North America. Not much market for them.
I had the twin carb version with the endy pipes. Very fast but very fragile aswell. These are ornaments now as parts are no more.
2000mile warranty now that,s balsy on a formula 125 👀
Mine for sale, its on Facebook marketplace
Williams, not Rothmans.

Are they the same size frame as the 125? The prices on these 80's are very reasonable.
Had a black one with Kenny Robert’s speed blocks👍🏼
When you compare that to say a Fs1e that can cost upto 10 grand that is remarkable good value for under 3 grand.
Coolioo minter deffo worth the money looks spot on

Had the 175
My second bike was a 73 G5
I done one up and sprayed it fluro orange. Straight if an RD50 just turned 17. First ride out I parked it into the back of a van😂
I had the following year when they redesignated it the KE100. Great little work horse! Rode it every day for 7 years as a kid racking up just over 110,000 miles and only one top end rebuild!

Had a moter from one of these in a grasstrack bike. Lovely moter inside.
Top looking bike
Clinton McDonald nearly as nice as yours 🤔
Mike Boggia you need this to go with your 125 !
Had one in1980
Old school Kaw sweet
This was my 1976 2 stroke Husqvarna GP 125 the first one in Australia. Which I raced against mostly RM Suzuki’s and Honda Elsinores. Increased front shock travel and just great over Jumps. My favourite being Amaroo Park main straight.
A3 tank paint. No gold rims swingarm. 🤔
A beautiful bike to ride ... i'd be willing to give it a trip or two round a track ... mind you , i couldn't ride it as hard as i would have back in '79 ... I was 15 then .
Looks like a 78

My old ones out there somewhere. 17" front rim with a standard 21 too ,, Rd legal , may still have the snap on sticker down the swing arm . Would love to see it again .
Jack Bresnahan awesome as it's ktm
Robban Noren din jö....
I have a ktm 350 for sale in the uk
Wish I still had mine , apart from the left hand kick start 😂
Seen this before but always nice to see an RD500LC being used the way it was intended - sounds sweet too 😍 ... See MoreSee Less
I would all over this if wasn't for the Atlantic ocean🙁
I had one, no comparison to the Japanese motorcycles. Good job Harley stuck to building street bikes. There value as a collector bike is excellent though.
Steve Drover don't see many of them! Gotta be worth a few bucks.
AMF Harley Davidson. The engines went on to be used in Cagiva early models.
I had 2 sx175s. Blew up both motors and before i could find parts the old man cut them up with a torch and threw them in the trash. Wish i could find one again. Great bikes
Andy Kerruish you seen one of them before
Shit when new, but interesting now 😊 Decent price too.
Had a merlin 350 trials bike fitted with the same cagiva engine great bike
More Cagiva than HD!! How about NO HD in it.
Ever ridden one!? Hell I've never even heard of the Harley/Cagiva SX 350. I've heard of, seen and ridden almost all the Aramachi/Harley SX models, and the 1978 Harley MX 250. But this is a new one on me.
Looks like a DT175 on steroids lol
I rode a 125, 175, and 250, but never seen a 350 two stroke. I seen a 4 stroke 350 ( Italian made), but wasn't dual purpose.
I have and I broke the throttle cable and had to ride it back by pulling the cable by hand.
More Aermachi than anything.
Had the SS250, awful….
Always considered rubbish.
Getting parts must be a blast
Nope But I had a 74 AMF HD SS 250 two stroke street bike Had a lot of fun on it.
I had this same bike later I got the 490 the 465 was much scarier than the 490 it had a smooth power band
Jonathan Hooker 😮
Those are 82 colors and stickers in the US.with 83 fork boots
I rode this bike to show a friend how to crash. It took a min to feel the power band kick, SCARY!!!! I still want 1.
Animal of a bike raw power
I had one, the only bike I lowered the forks,to reduce the wheeling---didn't work, up side when I sold it the front tyre was like new 🤔😁🤣
Oh dear! No wonder I got stared at so much when I started riding in 1970!
Big bang.. Fibreglass tank 😱
It would if the petrol went up ! 🤣👍🙈
I remember the ad
My first bike... exactly like the picture except took off lights for the dirt...
So let's have a cigarette beside the gastank
My father ran the importing company in Schenectady New York late 60s early 70s
Also the Triumph and Norton ads of that period of time.
Put that cigarette out!! 😄
Had an Alpina, Pursang, and a Frontera.
Good old days.
Kicking it, swearing at it and wishing he'd bought something Japanese.
i loved my 250 Matador
Totally true, and a fearless woman smoking next to gasoline confirms it!!
Had one of these go backwards on me after down hill on decompressor then stalled ,on restart it went backwards ,only time it ever happened to me
Yeah, they'll find a man working on it.
It's true owning a Bultaco attracted women.
Wheres theres a. Bultaco.theres a loser getting hammered by a jap bike.🤣
Looks like toxic femininity to me
Damm Straight! Just don't smoke around my Frontera. The carb leaks gas.
Obese women would complain
A man to help push her Bultaco straight to a guy with a running Honda
Very true and they are lucky girls.
David Beddy Bedford
Yum, Yum, Yum !!
Denis Kipling 👌
No better colours on a true race bike. 👌👌👌
Very nice until you need some spares. Then you'll need to be very nice to your bank manager. And that's just to pay the phone bill you'll get ringing Japan. "Hello" "is that Hrc? "Oh good, I need some Nsr250 engine bits please"........"Hello? Hello?.......Why are you laughing?.......You know a man who might have one piston ring? And he wants How much!!!!!!?😆
Iooks dead right.
Some big smile's per mile's to be had here 👍
Always wanted one had a ar80
Brillant we bike had one in white blue had all trick parts nose cone fern belly pan micron tuned
That’s an LC 80
Looks more like a 125,not an 80,RD 80 was single seat, not two up, even the European RD80LC that I got was single but had more bhp than the UK, version.
Looks like a 125 deffo
The 80 was rare here in uk,prices held high,sadly too many imports now.
Looks like an imported RD 80.
That's a RD 125 not a 80
Looks more like a 125 mk2 definitely not an 80 lc & definitely a lot different to my 80 lc that I’ve had from new in 1983
I’m pretty sure I had one of these as my first bike
My first bike when I was 8
I had one very similar in 1967,, Italjet 50.. I was 4 years old.. I’m now 60 and still loving motorbikes 🏍
Dale Phillips cocknose
And this one would for that money lol
The first one I ever rode, I was 4 in front of the Piggly Wiggly store. Set my mom back a dime!
Kevin Martine elle est pour toi celle là ! 😍
The widow maker
Made it too nice to ride so he has to sell it probably haha, if I had the money. Id be riding sensibly everywhere as I don’t want to die🤘🏽🔥😂
I always wonder who else mine hurt after I traded it in when I bought my V65 Magna, lol. Mine was like new still and I just wasn’t riding it anymore where I lived. V65 was kinda like a heavy road going rocket back in the 80’s. Same thrills but on the road.
John M Mills the evil One init this 1 year only
My 83 is very ridable….after you get it started. Always wanted the 84, Id add a compression release button and double thick head gasket and let her rip. Want to trade?
Where's all the Elsinore motors??? Now those are worth having to rebuild for Sure
I had one for several years, absolute beast. Powerband was unpredictable as hell, never knew exactly where it would hit, putting a keihin pwk on it improved it a lot but what a handful, I swear I'd lose a bolt every time I rode it.
Widow maker 😂
That's what you call the Widowmaker of the dirt. Badass bike.
Fastest dirt bike in a straight line ever produced...
And here's my taxi.....the white van with the blue light on top if I get on one of these again. It's not that cr500's want to kill you. They already know they're going to try but first they convince you that you're in control. Then they throw you into the hedge. 😆
Bestia japonesa !!!
My dream bike
Saludos desde vnzla tremenda makinas cohette por tierra y de paso negra muy bonita
Identical to my first bike, mine had the full fairing and kitted out in 250 white and red, to pass Learner regs 🤣
Wish I still had mine same colour as well 👍
I'd love it.. price is crazy 🤪
How do you go about realistically pricing it though fellas, one owner bike alone with the paperwork really adds a premium and it looks a nice example. Looks like it’s had some work done though around engine and frame
Fabulous.. but how much ??(😱🤣🤣🤣
Ricordo di gioventù: provo la moto di un mio amico, al semaforo rosso rallento... Come scatta il verde apro completamente il gas e mi esibisco in una impennata da urlo!!! Ero convinto di essere in seconda invece ero in prima. Momenti di paura!!!
If i lived over there i would snap it up in less than a heart beat
Just like mine
No one mentioned crank seals.. yet!
All it needs is a bit of tlc and updated brakes
Iv sold one for more than £14k even sold a fizzy for £11k both went back to Yamaha Uk headquarters about 5 yrs ago now
Surprised it wasn't nick at some point in its life.
Crazy , wouldn’t dream paying more than £5k for one .. if you’ve paid more than £5 k for one you bought wrong time 🤷♂️
£9500 more like
14k??????? Well if that's there prices nowadays my one is for sale aswell now! I will even throw in the standard exhausts 🤔🤔🤣
Wow ££££ 😯
Very nice bike but £14k is strong money
Not even a proper description and the price of it
Got my very first speeding ticket on one, cracking little bike
I've got 1 this is mine can be available 😉
Learnt to ride on my dads on a disused aerodrome.Such a buzz.Smell still gets me.
had a blue one just to potter about on
That’s a nice old thing. Very rare in black too.
Very nice comuter bike
Iv got one of these! Still runs if I put fresh petrol in it all electrics work, but needs a lot of work!
First real motocross bike I had a go on , I’ll never forget the hit of the power & the smell of Castrol R30
Mind o Robert Wilson having one of these
Mike Jones would wheelie past my house every day on a 1976 CR 125 and my mother would yell at him. That. Ever stoped Jonezy
My first proper scrambler, bought it for £125.00. Yes £125.00 🙂
Paul Trowbridge Bullet…
Those mufflers wernt on the australian bikes
That sparestor absolutely killed the power.
I started on a Yamaha MR 50 almost identical to this bike , best days of my life
To answer that question: watch how new ,older riders start on a heavy bime and NEVER develop skills.
You never forget your first bike!
Had two. Not a bad bike but could have been so much more if yamaha had been more brave and sent the reverse cylinder model to Europe.
Looks better without the 'Single- seat fairing
Never owned one, but still managed to crash one! Good eh??!!
Yep got one… just about to put it up 4 sale !
miss my Marlboro coloured 1KT
Yep... bloody awesome bike! Still around now in Huddersfield apparently.
Yep. Still got one. I know the one in the add also, its a real nice one
This was mine in the early 90's in Castlemona avenue in the IOM . Brilliant bike with excellent handling and braking
Known as "The Widow Maker" Awesome. Would never see the light of day in today's times
I want this !!
In the best colour too.
What are you asking for it?
These are such a kool motorcycle the more original to stock the better
Just like my 74 750 only mine was purple
Fast scary but Jesus wish I kept mine
Why are these not actually on ebay.
Wish I had never sold mine 38 years ago. Only paid $600 for it
any A7 350 twin survivors ?
My bike broke down and he loaned me one of these. I noticed one morning it made an odd noise when I first started it. When I released the clutch the thing went backwards. Just a wee adjustment to the points and timing sorted it.
Cracking little bike
Neil Sparey 😉🤣
I had the mz TS 150
Great ploder .had 2 of them
Ring ting ting ting ting!
Had a mate who traded his Montessa 250 for one of these. Never understood why, he was a good trials rider.
It looks like if you asked a 3 year old autistic kid to draw a picture of a motorbike....
It wouldn’t win a beauty contest. 😎
You mates grandad always had one.
TS 250/1 the best MZ 250 I.m.o.
Slightly faster than my BSA B25, but only just.
How wonderfully awkward looking...
Loved mine. Paid £429 for it brand new 😊
Bloody unreliable that's all I had a orange one
Such good wee bikes. If you ever find yourself in Berlin with time to spare, you’ll be glad if you visit the museum dedicated to bikes produced in the old DDR. Update. The museum is presently closed after some sort of hotel swimming pool malfunction inundated the building, forcing the owner to relocate his collection. There seems to be an ambition to re-open, so watch for news. You won't be disappointed if you like these machines and others like them. Several DKWs that Small Heath copied and released as diverse versions of its "poultry" line of models.
May look like the mother in laws vadge but these are a great commuter and you can get nearly 30hp out of them
Ring a ring ding.
Still ugly 👍
Guy down the road from me had one in the late 70s........a right ringading puff puff .,..rode it in all weathers .....never saw him having to do anything serious to it .......
I had one in the 90s that came minus the engine I put an xl250 in it that I had about
Absolutely awesome 👌
Kees van de Ven !!!
Mike Farrell didn't you have one like this??
When did the water cooled 125 come out? I had the exact same looking bike but was water cooled.. unreliable bag of Pooh it was🤭.
Beautiful, too bad rm 125s of the same year would kill it.
Old but Gold 😍 - Barry shows Magpie's lovely Jenny Hanley around his TR750. Who remembers this the first time round in 1976? ... See MoreSee Less
Yep, best bike I ever owned 👌
Need it from my birth year in 88 Bet it moves better than I do for a 35 year old aswell I need a rebuild
Yep. Great bike back in the day
Great till you have to Fix them
I went to the dealer to buy one,and they told they had all been recalled due to engine reliability issues
Anyone knows how many horse power This fantastic bike has
Doing one up now 🙌, good bike to work on
Restored this one back in 2018. Always preferred this to the Rothmans myself.
Always liked them…out of my reach …got a 500 ypvs instead…lol.
I had the 1970 Kawasaki 100 TrailBoss ! Had high and low range 😉
High low sprocket and an internal starter. Cool bike 😎
I was 2 years old, when this came out. 😂😂
No But I had a 69 Bridgestone Hurricane Scrambler 175 With an identical design
No, but I'd love to!
FUN Little Bike for Blasting Around Town!!
Another one I still lust after...
How good is this I want one.
Rode a bit of a newer one back in the day - had the adjustable geometry forks - not sure what year it was
probably the best kwaka ever made
Yes but it was an American eagle
Kawasaki bushwackers, great fun
Firefox also currently have a 350 Bighorn for sale, that would be my choice👍.
Got one for my 16th birthday for £299.00.Used it every day for 9 months and it was ultra reliable and pretty fast against all my mates peds.Hot summer of 1976 .Happy days.
if you had this back in the day this was the mutts nuts fast beautiful bikes had one in burnt orange but JPS was the pinacle sadly someone thrashed mine and siezed it up cheers then .. did love that little bike ❤️✌️👍
Paid £125 for mine p reg in 1979

It stinks that after all the time we've had cameras on our phones, that no one has figured out that you need to back up the camera position a yard or two, so you don't overwhelm the camera's audio capability.
Knew a lad in Leeds in the early 90s had one of these. Back wheel locked at 150 plus mph. Gearbox shattered. Good job he was a very big lad and experienced rider. How the hell he held it I will never know . But he put all his weight forward and held that bstd until it stopped. 1 very very lucky escape
Power Band of death. Just staggering.
Martin Parker gorgeous isn't it
Oh yeah baby 💪
Nice bike shame stan stephens rebuilt it there work detail is very poor to put it mildly.
dosent matter how good they look they all need work done. unless its a museum bike
I really wanted one when I was younger but got an RD350YPVS instead
Make it a 1984 or later
Absolutely love it. I also like a Ducati Paso.
MG Maestro wheels?
I remember when these came out as they were so unlike anything else on the road at the time. In the past it looked like the future and it’s interesting how much of its time it looks now.
Would not like a cross wind lol
1996-ban pont ilyen motorom volt.Imádtam!
Not nice looking. But if I was a wealthy bike collector this would be high up on my list.
Was a pristine one for sale in Thailand not long ago
Unpopular opinion but this is ugly as! 🤷🏼♀️😂
One guy's cool, is another guy's UGH...
Cooler than polar bear piss
Nice, very nice.
You can win one of these on The Giveaway Guys right now
A thing of beauty

Had one nice bike
Yes had one of these, knocked out the restriction ring in the exhaust, changed the front and rear sprockets managed to get 55mph down hill with wind behind me👍👍
Had one,greate bike
My mate Herby same as
I have one! Bought it off a mate a few weeks ago but on inspection the carb was off another bike and cable tied up!🙄 I could do with a carb if anyone has one!😊👍
My was red and white but other way round, my first bike good fun to throw around until I reached 17 soon got rid then
I had one of these same colour but jacked up at the back lol
Had one 1980, put a 14 tooth drive on an a peeshooter got 48 out of it,never knew about the restrictor indown pipe ACB 428 V, did actually love it..
Min var röd.
I did. Same colour. It was a 1986 and cost £670, brand new.
I had one early 80's - was pretty rapid!
Had one in the late 80,s loved it
Roger De Costa
Had one years ago. Ran damn good. Rick.
Miss my RM370
Brute, I know, had a 77
Thanks for the invite guys. 😤 I didn't want to barge in or intrude on you. My grandfather wheeling west virgina retired machinist wheeling stamping used to buy motorcycles. He stripped them down to the last dying nut bolt and tiniest spring. He shined everything back up rebuilding them. He made them look like they just got off the showroom floor. That was back in the 80s.
April 1989. Me and my oldest son.
89, best looking year , would love this thing, last time i rode a 500 the guy behind me said it was like was throwing bricks at him
Lot of lolly for a toy
The scariest bike I've ever ridden , so freaking fast
I have 1 Took me years to trade bikes to get 1
Scariest bike ever☠️
Tive uma com 16 anos ao início era difícil controlar mas depois posso dizer que me diverti bastante belos tempos era muito poder e queimou muita gasolina com pouca despesa mecanica
The stump puller
Charlie Morgan Nathan Nixon Got to be the cream of the crop.
Joey Hales What do you reckon? Blast from the past lol
You couldn't pay me to ride that widow maker 😬
She would pull a dead donkey out of a wet bog hiiiii
Widowmaker on the dirt friend of mine had one I Road it all the. The front wheel never stand on the ground it seemed like. Fast as hell
Prettiest bike of all time, fast as hell too.
John Millar ideal for you 👍👌🏁
Does it come with free private health insurance and life insurance? Because last time I rode a cr500 I quickly realised that both would be a good idea 😆
Are you a 'King' Kenny fan? - If so this is a MUST watch ... ⬇️⬇️⬇️ ... See MoreSee Less
Very nice, but appears to be a 1977. Not a 1979 frame, or swing arm, or rear hub sprocket pattern. Still, I like it!
One for you mate Mark Sheldon👍
Now that foooking nice I want it on my wall.
My 79 had a plastic tank, this does look good!!
Very nice!! First time I seen this paint job on a suzuki. I'm surprised the factory did not adopted for their newer bikes a modern version of this colors on a RMZ 250 and 450's. They would look seek!!
I'm a bit of a purist so it's a no from me..
That's a 76 c'mon people metal tank my 78 had a plastic
Looks crap personly..
Ahh the seventies when bikes gained 5 hp every year along with another inch of suspension travel.
