I had posted my contribution back on page 3/post #39.

Wanna see the piston that came out of it about 20-25 miles after that event?

It was running great... Until it stopped suddenly.

It had four partial seizures during the True Grits rally, but all resolved after a minute or two to cool down. Then I had it out on a nice easy ride of about 20 miles around the Island here when it said, "That's it. I'm done."

I've had several other 2-smokes, and this is the only one I cooked the piston in. After a cylinder rebore and new piston fitted by Team Calamari Racing it was better than ever. Had to sell it to make room for other new bike purchases, though

Remember the old saying. "These bikes always run best right before they blow up"... or sieze..

The nice white 1981 IT465







The 1981 Parts bike from eBay






And the 1982 IT465 blue enduro (the IT465s were made only in 1981 and 1982--contrary to what many people seem to think.)









I really need to get them running and give you some proper shots of them on the trail. Lots of work to do before then.
AWSOME BIKES ,I OWNED A 490 IT. IT WAS A POWER MONSTER! CAN YOU SAY 4TH GEAR POWER WHEELIES.
