Just grabbed a GTO engine.
« on: August 03, 2021, 12:18:34 AM »
Hey all. My name is John and I'm pretty new to the Bridgestone train. I actually just moved to Minneapolis for work and since the tempo of my new job is much slower than my last one, I figured it was time to start a hobby I've wanted to do forever.

I always thought some of the older 2 stroke bikes were cool, and once I ran into a guy selling an engine(with carbs!) for one, I grabbed it up pretty quickly. It's not exactly complete, but it's more parts than I had before, especially for a bike that's near non existent. I'm now about 300$ more poor but excited to get started.

If ya have spare parts or just tips about rebuilding these engines, please let me know; I generally only do 4 stroke stuff.

John; Welcome, and sorry for the belated reply to your post. How about a quick update on your acquisition. Any luck on moving it forward? I know a couple of people back in the MSP area that might be able to help you out.

Unfortunately, no. The engine is missing its side plates, so I can't even mount the carbs. I wish I could find a bike to go with this, or someone who was actually in need. It's not locked up, and appears that it would fire, if it had everything else.
