I used to have a 72 H2 750 2 stroke.
3 cylinders.
Stack breathers.
Very light.
Very fast.

Unlike picture, i liked to keep front wheel on ground.

You miss a gear it was coming up.
Over rev sounded horrible. Thrashing rings.
Redline was about 12,000

I bought this instrument of death at 16 years old . . . $400.00 on used car lot.
1979. Got a deal because " it burned oil" lol. Car salesman knew nothing about bikes.

Even scarier was the old Honda Elsinore mx. 500. It would die if you let off clutch too easy.
You could not shift and keep front wheel on ground. In any gear.
I was not a motorcross fan.
52 hp stock stripped 2 stroke single piston. Didnt even come with a kickstand.
An unruly beast.

Used to rebuild motorcycle engines in kitchen sink .back then.

It's nice to have a modern day Honda 500. Aka CR500 AF. Mine happens to be 2000 CR500 mild porting motor stuffed into a 2003 Cr250 frame. AF signifies Aluminum Frame as Honda never put a 500 motor in the new 1997+ Aluminum Framed motocross'ers.

I never did enjoy flying through air on motorcycles.
2 wheels on ground.
I had friends who raced motorcross and were champions.
Not for me.
One buddy, x viet nam helicopter pilot, was a mad man on motorcross.
He is remarkably alive & in 1 piece now.
