Very nice. Love the exhaust.

I have a '71 CT1c and a '75 XS650. But I don't have the time or skill to build one of these.

The hours spent riding my Enduros is not deducted from my life span.

Yeah same here. Hows the song go--If i only had Time--plus skill lol. Did put an RD250 twin into a PE250 once with twin chambers over the top. Ran good but was bloody useless realy so put an XR200 in it. Was just a frame i got for nothing 30 years ago plus a motor i had under the bench type thing. Funny how memories come back of past F@#k ups when i see something like this. Motor was a bit rough but ran perfect. Mate took it for a ride & came back loving it. We talked & he hit the start button & bump--nothing-- upshot was the right side main had broken the cage & at 'that moment' one ball bearing rolled out when they must've all congregated together or couldn't happen. Ball rolled through the balance hole in the flywheel & the conrod went--Bonk--so gave up on it, didn't like it anyway lol. I'll find a pic of my PE/now smokey 185 these days. Was good to ride with a tweaked up 12/1 piston megacycle cam 200 many years ago, till it broke a conrod.
