Got a note from Stephen Rothwell and Wayne Wright of the Two Stroke Shop in Australia that things are pretty much ready to go. When we mentioned them a couple of months ago, prices weren’t set but now they have things all arranged into parts lists and kits with the appropriate pricing. Shipping of the first TSS500GP engine kits and complete engines will begin in February and customer builds of complete bikes are already underway.
Two strokes are far from dead, in fact, if these guys have anything to say about it, a lot of folks may once again get a chance to see what all this fuss is about when people mention 2 stroke engines. If you think the sound of a 2 stroke with crazy power in a nice light road or track bike is just the thing to make you smile, get in touch with Stephen or Wayne and they’ll set you up with just what you need. They are also looking for the best way to scale up their operations for higher volume because interest was high, even before they were able to begin building the kits, it could be an opportunity for the right company. Pretty neat!
