TWO-STROKE TUESDAY | THE SMOKERS OF THE AMA MOTORCYCLE HALL OF FAME MUSEUM
Here is Ricky Carmichael’s 2001 Kawasaki KX250 that he went on to win both the Supercross and outdoor National Championships that year.
This last weekend was the 2019 AMA Motorcycle Hall of Fame induction. The riders inducted were Mark Buckner, Kurt Caselli, Ron Lechien, Wiltz Wagner and Dale Walksler. When we were at the Motorcycle Hall of Fame Museum we couldn’t notice all the two-strokes that were among us. We wanted to capture the two-strokes inside the Hall of Fame Museum. Here is what we found.
One of the only fully automatic motocross dirt bikes the Rokon. The bike also featured a Sachs snowmobile engine, Salisbury torque converter and rope pull-starter. Jody was scared to race the Rokon.
Here is an up close shot of the Sachs powered Rokon automatic engine.
Remember when Jeff Emig was fired from Factory Kawasaki due to his run in with the law back in 1999? After that he found a place at the newly founded The Edge sport team and went on to win the 1999 U.S. Open of Supercross on this Yamaha YZ250.
