Not as impressive as some...

But she's mine and my daily ride. Even had an old fart yell at me the other day, he was of the opinion that my bike belonged in a museum collection not getting flogged by he hands of some young punk. I think I heard my R60 giggle when he said that.

Old Guzzi still kept by the original owner's family. Current registration and still ridden on the road regularly. I took about a billion pictures of this.

Does THIS count?

My custom bobber- 1973 750 Tiger (single carb, 5 speed, right-hand shift) motor, titled on a 1969 frame- built from all original vintage, unrestored parts- out of a friend's massive collection of Brit stuff. Mostly all Brit bits- except for, I believe, a 16" Harley rear rim:















Oh yeah- now it has a HD Kick start pedal on it.

Result

I am seriously jealous!

What a result...It's a real time warp machine that was obviously kept in a good spot for the last 20 years. I hope you don't go crazy restoring it. Hopefully your new goose will give you years of riding pleasure.

There comes a time, maybe, when a motor needs "restoration". But most of the public is too free with that word. People ask me if I am going to restore my Beemer. I almost got in a fight with a guy once because I told him that was an insult. My bike doesn't need "restoration". What really pisses them off tho is when you tell them the unrestored machine is worth more than the "restored" item.

I really like the Trophy.
