Anyone build a 500 2stroke motard locally?

There's a CR500 2 stroke for sale on CL that needs a bit of work but I'm sure I can get it or cheap. I've seen some pics and videos online that have me interested. I've never ridden one, I've ridden a cr125 and
I thought that was fast so I couldn't imagine a 500.

Why u ask? Because it's America and I can

If some one has done it locally even with any 2 stroke I'd like to know and pick ur brain on a few things.

My goal is to get it plated so I can hurt myself on the street

I did a couple a while back.
They're a real handful when they come on the pipe, especially if you're mid corner with a knee down.

Chad's 500 is a beast riding it on the pavement. I couldn't imagine it with motard suspension and wheel set up on it too..

All I can say is I hope your comfortable with poppin wheelies.

lots of em






I have a 1969 T500 2 smoke and its a blast to haul around in, it will still lift easily in second after 40+ years. I would love to ride a single cyl. 500 2 strike, probably wheel barrow loads of torque when it hits.

lol, you don't even have to wait for "the hit" to feel the torque on those monsters. As soon as you twist the throttle, even right off idle, it's wheelie time in any gear.

I've ridden quite a few motorcycles that greatly exceeded my comfort level. . .a 500CC single cylinder two stroke would be right up near the top of my "you better not this up" list!

There are some out there. they are great for poppin wheelies and actin' a fool. But If you have any serious intention of taking it to the track, i'd look at a 4-stroke. much easier to ride and wont require top-ends as often. plus, the cranks on a 500 2-stroker generally wont last very long when you take em out on the pavement and rat- em. you will be splittin the cases in no time

Build that and I got $5 that says you ball it up in sight of the house on the maiden run.

And no riding like a for two blocks just to collect my Lincoln dammit.


I know a guy that has two CR500AFs in his garage. If you get one, he knows more about keeping them running than anybody else I know. He could be a resource if you need one. Real nice guy.

I rode Chad's 500 after years of always wanting to ride one, I built up the 500 as a beast from hearing about other people that had rode one, I was very disapointed by the perfomance of the motor. And the chassi was , but I was more so let down by the fact that the motor was not as fast as I had hoped it was going to be.

were we riding the same bike?? lol

No, i'll agree that it didn't have as much power as I had imagined but it still had plenty to give. Most noticable in the lower RPM range IMO.

I was hopeing for more of a burst like when it hit the power band. It had more down low than a 125 or a 250 but I think I wouls be faster on a 250 2T.
The 450s have more grunt all around and seem like they have way more motor pull than the 500.
I have not rode dirt in a while before I rode Chads 500 so maybe more ride time and I would have been able to ride it harder.

I've never ridden one but if you look at the dyno graphs of one the power band is wild. From 3500 to 5000 rpm the horsepower goes from like 25 to 50 and then just falls off like a cliff at 5500 rpm.
