MXA VIDEO: WE RIDE A 1994 HONDA CR500 TWO-STROKE RESTO-BUILD

MXA RIDES A 1994 HONDA CR500 TWO-STROKE RESTO-BUILD

Nathan Alexander, who was the team manager at the Muc-off Honda team in 2021, and is currently Mitchell Oldenburg’s mechanic at MotoConcepts Honda, was the mad scientist who brought the 1994 Honda CR500 to life. Jamie Ellis at Twisted Development was a part of making this project come to fruition and Yarrive Konsky, owner of the FirePower Honda team, is the owner of this CR500. Most of the MXA test riders prefer to race on dirt bikes with modern technology, but we don’t take for granted the days when we get to hop on old two-strokes like this one, to get some perspective for how gnarly the 500cc class used to be and for how far motorcycles have come in the last twenty years. Watch MXA test rider Ezra Lewis have some fun on the 1994 Honda CR500 as we explain how this bike came together and how it ran on the track. Also, stay tuned for a 2000 Kawasaki KX500 project bike video to be released on July 5th and a 500cc two-stroke Shootout video coming out after that.
