ItalJet180 Dragster. Not so rare in Europe, but like rocking horse manure over here. One of the best bikes I've ever ridden. Sold it a few months ago.

From a WW1 RAF Flight Manual ...

1973 Indian 70cc 2-stroke. Top speed = 25 mph.

This picture isn't mine, because I couldn't upload my photo. I restored it myself, then sold it to a collector. Fun project, useless bike. It was made in Italy (Ital-Jet), and the motor was Minarelli/Ducati.

Had one of these. Rare in North America but not in the rest of the world.

Enclosed front disc brakes were ok on the street but would overheat and fade in about 3 laps of racing. Installed a complete front end off a CX650E to get normal front brakes. With a Wolf header and some jetting it was plenty fast to run in the 550 Cafe class against modified GPZ550.

What a fun bike this was.

Two of my favorites that I wish I could have owned.

Rarest I've owned was a 1972 Honda CL200 (not the far more prevalent CB200). Hey, it's rare now.
