I sure liked the 2C Benelli I had (I was a Benelli dealer at the time).
There was a very nice one a year or so ago for sale- but in Canada and doing the whole import thing seemed a hassle (plus I was trying to keep from spending money)
Looks good!

Lovely thread. Mix of old and new, fancy and tidy versus worn and clad with honor.

May I present mine?
I found myself the twostroke that stole my heart a long time ago. I intend to do some long touring on it once the honeymoon is over.
Here it is on its very first outing; still needs a lot of i's and t's to dot and cross.

Had a 500 RG500 Walter Wolf rep' Only bike in the world that had an update for every gear in the box sans first. I uprated to GSXR wheels, Tommy Crawford chambers etc. Good times when the powervalves opened up at 7800 RPM. Fun bikes when they weren't spitting gears through the cases or injesting pieces of their disc valves.

A few of my strokers....



Dec 71 build date GT750J.....unrestored, but seriously cleaned up and recomissioned, after sitting in several barns for 20-25 years......still looking for a good original 72 seat.



My RZ350 I've had since 1985...been through various stages in life, but it's ready for some warm weather again,

My idea of adventure is a two stroke hitting it's powerband....

I've got a lot of seat time on an RS250 like the one in the background, but have only puttered an RZ350 around the block. How do they compare, motor wise?

The RS I've only had on the track, and the RZ only on the street....so It's hard to say really. But no question the RS is way more fun, and seems to pull a bit better at higher RPMs. The RZ has a stage 3 Spec II cylinders and head work, with Toomey pipes and 32 Mikuni's. The RS has Jolly Moto's and straight plug heads, opened up airbox like a kit RGV...

Sadly the RS hasn't been on a track for 6 years now....Economy/divorce/relocate/$$$...
But the RZ has been completely gone over and ready for dry weather, and the RS has a couple track days booked this year. And I'm looking forward to a new comparison.....

I had an RS 250, what a blast!
Sold it after a buddy got really hurt on the track.
And a couple other two strokes.

That OSSA looks good lowered with those straps....would be a cool cafe racer.

My 99 Cup RS waiting for some track time


My newly aquired VJ22FL....home market RGV.
Hadn't been fired up since it arrived on these shores around 12 years ago....until I pieced it back together enough to get some smoke out of it. Still needing parts for this one.

No shit. Steve Baker (owner of Mt Baker Motosports in Bellingham WA) has one he uses as his daily driver. RG500 daily driver = total fucking badass.
