This months Classic Motorcycle Mechanics 2 stroke special........
I don't normally buy this mag any more but with the cover page, I couldn't resist.

It's alright, got some cracking bikes in it but is it really a Two Stroke Special?

I was slightly disappointed

Saw it in the shop this morning, didn't have a look though. Maybe I need to, it sounds like PS (the only bike mag I've bought for years) is about to go down the drain. Crying or Very sad

PB (which we all used to love until it disappeared up it's own fuel-injected arse about 15 years ago) is getting killed off in 2 issues time. They're going to add some extra pages to PS with a PB-flavour. The price will stay the same (for the first issue anyway...) so you won't be any worse off, except you might have to wade through tedious tyre tests and features on why some 26K Ducati is 3m/s faster round a track than some 22K Yamazuki.

What happens if you subscribe to PB I have no idea.

Haven't bought Pb for years and contain my pennies to occasional Classic Bike and PS ... a very nice article in CB re the TT 3 cylinder one of "home build" stroker.

I missed the chance of a Saab 3 cylinder 2 stroke engine recently ... would have made an interesting special.

Would it fit into a bike frame?

And what's the spec on one of those engines?
