Sadly two stroke pricing on the 500 parts will only get higher, no jokes I'm afraid.
Been looking for junk/unusable cylinders.

Appreciate the help.

Smoker, if you just need an engine for Jeff to build pipes from, I might know of an RZ500 engine that could be loaned... so long as it stays at Jeff's location. Send me an email and we can discuss details.

Thanks much, JF!

If I get stuck, I'll let you know.

Will be a struggle to get the RZV500 ready on time. Need the new swingarm to make the lower pipes, and need some kind of mockup tail for the upper pipes.

Not sure if anyone but forkless will understand how I feel. The 2-stroke world is very small and off-beat these days.

I mentioned that I sent an email to Rick Lance (Lance Gamma) about getting the 4 unusable cylinders. Today, the phone rings---holy fuck!!--- it's Rick Lance.

From what I know, Rick Lance is #1 on the planet for building and modifying the RZ500/RZV500/RG500 engines. Dude has legendary rep for his knowledge and skills.

Not positive, but he might be hand-delivering the 4 cylinders to me. I'm in SoCal, he's in NC, but he'll be out here on business soon. No talk of money on either side. Really looking forward to shaking his hand and having a beer or coffee.

Reminds me of RGVSteve. Will stay on the phone indefinitely, talking about bikes. Just like me. Damn, I hope I live a while longer! Could maybe end up with a bad-ass engine in the RZV Roller. Stay tuned.

Cylinders arrived from Rick Lance. Will get better pics when I can.

Using a front cylinder on the rear because the exhaust flange is in the same location.

Prepping the Streetfighter RZ350 for pipes now. The 500 should get pipes after the 350.

Need the new custom swingarm, and a custom tail, (or at least a mockup tail), and some frame mods, before making pipes. Much to do.

Should have bought this long ago.

Engine is complex, for a 2-stroke.

Preliminary CAD drawings are done.

Now looking for someone to machine the aluminum axle blocks for the custom swingarm.

Sneak peek at Seb's work on the custom swingarm.

Gull wing on right side.



Axle block cutouts similar to the RZV frame cutouts.

Mike at Diamondback Designs is doing some amazing machine work for this bike.

I talked to several shops that wouldn't even try the titanium dogbones - or they wanted me to order 100 pieces. Mike got one-offs done for a fair price.

The new axle blocks for this bike are a good example of detailed one-offs made by Mike. Almost done, just a couple more tweaks needed.

Rest in peace, brother.

I loved Rick Lance. Living legend of the 2-Stroke community.
He was going to help me build the RZV500 of my dreams.
Nobody could out talk or out live Rick when it came to motorcycles.
One of the friendliest dudes I've ever known.
Never thought for a second, he would go before me.
