Sure, I had a green '76 for a while, and a purple 'n white R5, before I joined the nav. Make sure you have pockets full of B8ES' if you run the autolube. It's set at about 15 to 1, which make the bike smoke, foul plugs and run on the hot side (oil burns hotter 'n gas). Use Yamalube S (injector oil). If you ditch the autolube, run it at 32 to 1 Yamalube R. You'll be surprised how much netter the bike runs.
Of course we didn't have Yamalube R back in the day, I used Bardhal VBA at 20 to 1, after I ditched the pump.

My pump has already been ditched so I'll be shaking up the premix in my garage.

...for the real "two stroke" experience. I'd run Yamalube R in the bike, burns super clean, and lubricates the best I've seen from any 2 stroke earl.

You really need a 2 stroke bicycle now to "complete" the whole mosquito abatement process...I've got one waiting for you, and it's been "prepaid" too...

I showed my son the pictures of your bicycles and he insists that I drive up and get one. I'll have to brave LA traffic in the process and it's hard to lane split in my truck.

You in Burbank? Maybe I can run up the 15.

Arm yourself to the teeth!

Primarily because Cuddy is hopped up on meds and drink. As it is we all know he's a crazed loon sober. Just stay clear of the severed heads on the bamboo sticks.

Hey Cuddy, what is the top speed on those motorized bicycles you've got over there. Would they work on back roads?

Yes, in Burbank. The fastest way would be to get on the 1-15 North, to the westbound 210. Take the 210 all the way 'till it runs into the 5 north, and bingo, Beeeyotiful Downtown Burbank...You get the Huffy...it runs on 32 to 1 Yamalube R too, so you kill two birds..etc etc..

Yes, they work great in the dirt...look at the pic I sent to Buz..that's Tahquitz Canyon in Palm Springs in the background. The bike made it all the way to that canyon far yonder with no problem. If the ground got too rough, I'd just pick the bike up and portage it across.

I've got one left, a Diamondback that goes about 40...way too fast for a bicycle...
