Hry, Eets-What year Laverda is that? I'm trying to decide if I'm old enough to remember when it was new.

1974 SFC. For sale right now and only 32,000. This later model 1998 Laverda 68 is a little more in my price range at only 1800.

Whoa, just rewatched Mad Max last night and saw the real Goose bike doing it's thing.
And you show a pic of a modern faux Goose bike !
Mad Max and the Road Warrior movies are time capsules of the '70s. Faking by dressing up a retro bike = fail !
A beat up , flat black piece of shit based on '73 to '76 900 Kawasaki would be far more realistic than your example.

I know I can't believe I missed that. Shame on me.
A side note to Mad Max: The version they showed this weekend on AMC is the original Australian version. For years the version we got in North America was redubbed with American voice actors-you can see how they sometimes don't quite sync up becasue they use different phrases like "we gone".

Toe Cutter sounds less like a cartoon characture and more like a professor in the Auzzie version! Same thing with Fifi.



Heres on of Wez for you too:

You know, if that F8GT had better fuel capacity/range, it could fall into the "one bike" category.

I'm more worried about reliability and maintenance issues. And I've heard the engine is a little blah. Haven't ridden one since the 800ST came out. A lot of potential, though...
