Are you out there now? A Buddy of mine is there with a 1,000hp streamliner called "Trojan's Pride"

Oh, and a two stroke:

Meanwhile - down at the bottom end of the market, anyone remember these? A 76 Suzuki B120 on a 2000 mile trip from the UK through Germany back in February this year.

My in-laws next door neighbour offered it to me for free before they took it to the dump after it had been in their garage for 25yrs. I put in a new battery, test rode it a few miles and set off. Still got the original tyres (and probably the original air ) It survived a week flat out on the autobahn (= 50mph ) with one blown light bulb as the only problem. It's still running and I'm off to France on it next month.

Brilliant Backofbeyond, this is the true adventure spirit!

In the UK back in the 80s a mate of mine had a B120 as a field bike, I've haven't seen one since, wonder if that's the same bike

Keep us updated on the touring & more pics please

So for a bit of fun anyone care to guess what would have been written on the chrome with painted side panels tank when it was new? & what year?

To be fair it's a difficult one as there were lots of different British makes using Villiers engines when this was on the road.

Ambassador?

That looks pretty awesome, but I've always read that 2 strokes don't do too well with forced induction of any kind... but I guess with the know-how, tuning time and $$ you could make it work... maybe?
