Official poll: Who is starting to feel old? Can you imagine that this RZ350, the last officially imported street legal two stroke in the US, is pushing the big three-0? Does that make you want one any less? I didn't think so.
This RZ looks to have had a busy life. The seller notes that it is on its 4th overbore. If you are an optimist, that spells more capacity! But then, two strokes have always been about the ease of top end servicing, and honing/re-boring is not an uncommon practice. Looks like this owner knew a bit about what he was doing, and there are some tasty mods to this ride.
