They were Limeys. That's cool with me. I rode mostly Triumph, Norton and BSA.

Early 2 strokes used a..bottom end oil system..

Remember - the early oils did not have as good of lubricating properties as oils today.

The early 2 strokes burned way more oil than modern ones. They very well might have had problems with sticky rings... Of course with the short expected life of the engine between rebuilds - you'd never notice.
