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.
The problem is engine emissions and two stroke fuel economy. Some people, like me have Kawasaki Tripples in the garage and remember the fun we had on our 500cc RGs and RZs in the 80's.

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