Street bikes, what ya got?

Postby speedracer170 » Sun Jul 01, 2012 11:21 pm

So I picked up a Kawasaki KE 100 2 stroke the other day (2nd bike I ever owned) and have been riding the hell out of it the past few day. So what is everyone else riding on the street?

Cody,

Dating myself more than a little bit but back when I was in high school a friend of mine had that same basic bike (100cc, air cooled, rotor valve intake). We cut the head, reshaped the combustion chamber, cut the rotor valve to change intake timing, ported the cylinder, made our own expansion chamber (great book was available back then), made an adapter to use a bigger carb, and mixed Blendzall black label (nitro) with the gas. Amazingly it lived...and was stinking fast!!! Thanks for the memories!

Cheers, Dennis

I would like to make this bike faster but don't need another money pit :) Paid $500 for it and been using it as a daily driver

cody -- how fast does it go? I may be interested in purchasing if you're selling when you guys take off, providing you don't keep it.

The RZ is one of my dream bikes, so someday it'll get put together and run. The XS is bone stock and has been in my family for years. I've got a strong itch to turn it into a bobber, but can't bring myself to do it.

Street tracker, just sayin. And yeah, the RZ would be cool updated to modern specs.

As far as street bikes go, you won't find another in the USA (unless another German Air Force guy brought one over).
