Reviving the two-stroke road bike
Dreams are free, but here are some links to people with plans and ideas to create a viable modern two stroke road bike. Since the remise of the Suzuki RG500 and Yamaha RZ500 t2-strokes have fallen from favour.

Its got to be possible and I'm adding links to this site people who are still working with 2-strokes.
