Is that a pepsi bottle over the distributor?

I know I posted here somewhere before... But here's one of my "beauties". Bought it last year and finally got around to tinkering with it. '76 XL 250, with OVER 20,000 miles on the clock. Alls I had to do was drain the 10 year old gas out of the tank, hose out the carb, and kick it. Once. Not much compared to a lot of the other bikes on here, but these are the only bikes for me!

Saw this at the last British/Japanese/Euro Show. Great patina!

1970 CB450 K3 undergoing a ground up restoration as we speak. If it wasn't for the blown head gasket I probably would have just changed the handlebars and left it alone.

Here is my '81 CB750 Custom. 7000 original miles. Unrestored except for tires, brakes, battery, etc. I plan to polish the engine side cases and touch up some of the black paint on the frame, but otherwise I'm leaving it as-is. It's not worth putting more into it. It runs fine for what it is ('80's technology) but compared to my DL650 Strom it's a slug.

Great patina indeed but what is it? Have never heard of it before.

A couple of my old CZ Jawa. Unknown year as the serial plate wasn't punched on either. Just 195_.





1975 Kawi F9 that my dad bought new. All original (including tires), except for the front fender. It's a new old stock Preston Petty.

new to me, 2 cl-90s.
The red one is slated to be a donor bike as the engine and carb were full of water.
