Default Old school is Kool

Some of the 2 strokes Ive seen here in Thailand, have ridiculous amounts of milage on them. Some are over 20 years old and are spewing oil and crap all over them, but some are mint like this little Kawasaki!

Now red axle, blue rims and gold spokes and even a disc up the front. The lack of fluid in the reservior made me suspect the brakes were just for show anyway!



A drum on the rear, possibly the saviour of any pilot!



Oh lordy, an expansion chamber thats nearly as big as the engine...



This little bike fired up like it was brand new, I was in lust... until I saw all the lights flicker on and off then on and off again as he dissappeared into the evening.



I had some consolation though, as I knew I couldn't have the little blue rocket.
But I had graduated to the Yamaha in the family fleet. Kick start, 4 stroke.. and a beer basket on the front.

Things are ok after all..

That front disc is hilarious- if not dangerous...you,re right- show only...
The Lordy reference indicates a familiarity with Robbie Coltrane?

LOL. Love the priorities. Lace and polish the bling wheels; leave a working front brake to later .
