I was called and asked if I wanted a 66 Yamaha 305 twin 2 stroke. This bike was my friend's dad's bike and has been in storage foralmost 40 years. It only has 3500 miles on it. It needs a lot of work to get it back going again but the wife couldn't complain on the price (free they were going to throw it in a dumpster). She thinks I have too many projects going now. This one I only want to clean up and get running and run it like that. I haven't checked it out much yet just pushed it down the street to my mom's house.

I think you will have a lot of fun with that. Almost indestructible.

Rubber stuff maybe needs replacing. My DT250 was a lot of fun and strong as a tank.

Thanks for the info to where to get parts. It does need some. I have wanted to get a 2 stroker for a while. I had a triple 750 Kawazaki when they first came out (that dates me). Would like to get that bike back. You would get on that and leave two blue streaks behind you. Talk about fouling plugs.

For me it was the H1 500. I called it DEATH since the guy I had bought it from had died on (falling off at speed) it! I had it for a year before it killed someone else and itself.
As a kid I thrilled at riding the Savages. I owned a Honda 55s but would rent the 250s from local dealers in Thailand and head for the Super Highway where we could top them out. I'll admit I really enjoy the Wings and Ducks and CBRs but those little 2strokes had all the thrills and chills of real riding and the need of skill

Sounds like a fun bike and very good price, I think.

I got a "free" dog once and ended up costing me $600. :?
