Stafford Show Saturday

Not a sausage, no Kr’s tandems or 1S , given it was the “Japanese “ show I was surprised. Did anyone else go?

I did not go.
I wanted to,I wanted to have a weekend away with the boys at the show.
But unfortunately.the main man bernie is away on holiday at Gran Canaria.
But what you say does not surprise me as not many kr,s out there.
Compared to lc,ypvs ,rg, Not many about at all.
current bikes
fully restored green/white kr1 b2

Cheers Martin , yes lots of LC’ both inside minters and outside average to dogs! Not so many RG’s

Most interesting, if thats the right word was a Yam LC engine in a TZ frame. Owner claimed you could get it road registered from the engine and have a real talking point at your local bike meet! It certainly would be different!

There was a mint "S" on the Staffs VJMC stand , at the very back left of the hall and I did spot an engine for sale!

havent been for a few years but I quite enjoyed it, shame it rained so much on the Sunday.

There was a standard KR1S on the local VJMC stand, and a modified one on the UK 2 Strokes stand. No tandem-twin, I didn't need to lob mine in the van as a last-minute filler this year. :lol:
Kawasaki KR250 Tandem Twin (x4) & KS-II 80,
Yamaha RD350LC,
Suzuki GSX-R750RK & RB50 Gag.

I need stronger glasses, I thought I had scoured all the halls. Often The two stroke clubs often have a KR amongst the sea of LC / YPVS but I must have missed them. Keep repeating “ we are rare, we are special” !👍👍👍👍👍
