It was on a facebook page. I believe its an rd200 with a jacketed factory barrel and head.

Had me worried too. It may be a CS5 180, but it's certainly one of that 125/180/200 range.

I picked this book up in the 70's, when I was going to try to make my own expansion chambers for my T500. Is anyone familiar with this book or the author, who wrote a number of books on cars and motorcycles.

I believe I have a copy of that somewhere here. I had an early copy back in the sixties plus the companion book on porting two strokes. That's what got me started with two stroke. I ported a 225cc Villiers 1H and fitted an aftermarket expansion chamber and made noisy stinky smoke all over Scotland for a while.

The state of the art has changed a little since then, but it's still a great read.

That was decades before personal computers or programmable calculators, so it was all done old school - buy a book and a few files and get filing. No Dremmels or porting tools back then either.

That looks like Olav Aaen with one of his three cylinder sled chambers. He had some huge chambers in his shop in Racine when I last visited.

I did tons of the calculations, with my calculator but ended up selling the T500 and buying an H2 and some chambers for it.
