Those are in amazing shape. Thanks for sharing. There are in fact a handful of us here on this forum who are two stroke junkies so feel free share anytime. :cheers

Beautiful, just beautiful.

I think anyone over 40 out here is by default a 2-stroke lover. My main 2-stroke experience (motocross notwithstanding) was crashing a KH400 trying to get it started by towing it behind a pickup truck on a gravel driveway.


What's that parked beside the old gix? I can't put my finger on it.

Wow, beautiful bikes. I have never ridden a two-stroke street bike, but love them off-road. It looks like you did an awesome job on them. Nice work!

Looks like a 1st Gen R1?

Oh yeah... you can see it beside the H1 in the first pic. Not sure if R1 or the older YZF1000. I hated the twitchy on/off clutch on those.

Damn all your old bikes sure are cleeeeeaaaaaaan.

The front fairing says R1 above the headlight.

Definitely a 98 R1. I was too busy looking at the Kawi to even notice another bike there. :wacko R1 looks clean too!

Beautiful collection Ken65,I never rode the 500 but did take a short blast on a friends blue '72 750 H2 before he restored it. Fun bike.

I owned an '85 RG500 back in 2000,loved that bike but couldn't pass on the ridiculous cash offer someone made so I sold it

Thanks for the kind words fellas.
You's got the R1 right. First year 98. It's a beast.
Almost like a big 2 stroke with its power delivery.

Beauties Ken!

I had two H1 same color. Bought the first one new. Sold it and bought its twin later on. Got a little misty when I saw yours. That baby would wheelie like no one's business belching out a cloud of blue smoke. Gee ...to be young and dumb again.

Funny you should say that. A couple of months ago I put it on ebay. It met reserve in 45 minutes. in a few days had over a 1000 views . it got to alot more that what i paid for it ages ago and I had to apologise to all the bidders after i took it off ebay. I felt bad about it but in the end I just wasnt ready to part with it.

We cant keep them all . They are worth a fair bit here in our part of the world.
In fact I only just got home from a ride on it. You know the smile I've got on my face.
