Wow. Some beauties in here!
Seeing an LC right on the first page blew me away.
Here is a picture of a picture of my first street bike.
An 81 Canadian model.

I got it in high school, and used to ride back and forth from home to college- Toronto Ontario to Flint Michigan, around 4 hours at high speed. If I remember correctly it would rev around 8500 at 80 mph. It used to get so shaken from so much high rev running that it would blow the baffles out of the expansion chambers.

The RD350LC was my 2nd street bike. I had an RD400, but when the LC came out I had to have it. Kind of made me (in)famous at my high school 'cause I could pull wheelies all the way to 3rd gear on it. The vice principal thought it was a bad idea and had a little talk with me. I stopped doing wheelies in front of the school, but, of course, continued everywhere else.

Kind of surprising I never killed myself on that bike. Ah youth.....

Yeah, me too. I ended up selling mine to a close friend who totalled it, and nearly himself.

Here is one of my "old school rides". Its a 1978 R100S, with 230,000 miles, most of which were put on by the original owner. The bike came to me after his untimely death at the bars of a brand new Harley D. Springer bike that belonged to a friend of his.

Here are a few of the daily riders that grace the basement. Some of the pics were "borrowed" from the original owners.



This is my 1972 Honda CL 450 that I picked up from DirtDoggy (nice guy). Great shape and fun to run errands on.





Picked this little fella up in Denver, just over 1000 miles on the clock!





Got this little girl from member "Fairview" up in Virgina. Very, very low mileage. Took just a little TLC and she sings like a sewing machine!



Have a few more bike pics I'll add later, but arriving to Casa G-Dog in the next few weeks is the famous bike "Ole Beater" that was the topic of "THE GREAT ADVRIDER BIKE HANDOFF."

My old school ride. 1979 XS650. I inherited it from my very generous father about 12 years ago. He bought it new. It's basically all original and runs great.

I always liked the SR. I thought it would make a great platform for a cafe racer. Your's looks like it was pristine!

Thanks! It was in pretty good shape for a 1978. It was deteriorating when I sold it as I was travelling a lot and never had time to ride it. I did the following to it: Supertrapp replaced stock muffler, eliminated battery with large capacitor, made an oil temp guage by snipping off the dipstick from the screw cap and drilling/countersinking/JB welding a cooking thermometer in place. New front springs and I repainted the side covers with a Ford color from the local auto parts store.
There is so much you can do to these bikes and they are great canyon carvers...

I ran into this guy last weekend in Cruso, NC. He was riding the bike, with camping gear, and it looked showroom new. He reportedly bought the bike in the UK about 30 years ago, stored it, and recently did a total restoration. Sweet
