Too cool Doug. Wire milk crate, wire bicycle basket, and it appears like a leather purse in the bicycle basket. Truly a man ahead of his time. I love the old pics. I'm old enough to know how cool you were back then, but hey, you still are.

I dunno where all I went on this one. I did go thru 3-4 motors on this bike tho. I have a map somewhere with different routes outlined by which bike I was traveling on. After this bike, I got a Guzzi 850T, then I really started going places.

I still have the bike & the vest, the rest of the ensemble got worn out & tossed aside

actually, I do have a pair of pink shades, with a real light tint, & rhinestones at the corners. They are almost clear, & make great nite time glasses. I save em for special occasions tho, like bike week.

You'd be amazed at the looks I get riding a knucklehead chopper down main street with pink glasses on.

Truly dig the vibe... know the era for sure. I started riding then too.

But I lived in the mountains. Denim full jackets - and leather as soon as I could afford it.
