That applies at least to the pipes of the first 750's. Just to give an example: an almost new pair of pipes for the CBX 1000 sold for more than 2500 $ in ebay just 2 weeks ago.

Hey, did somebody say "Flathead?"

This is not mine. Wish it were.



Or from a different school of Old School:



Appears Flash Gordon worked for Maico in the Fifties, eh?

Plenty of very large alloy castings:



The whole Taifun:





Did somebody say "large alloy castings?"






Listen, if you like Old School, nothing compares with an AHRMA race. It's really nice to see, oh, a couple of dozen Vincents parked in the grass, more than a few of which were ridden to the show. Or to hear a squadron of 50-year-old Limey singles pulling up the straight. Or to watch a bunch of little Ducatis giving chase to bikes with twice the cylinders and triple the displacement. The Art of the Motorcycle only going really fast.

Strangest sight in racing is when they run 250GP and Pre-40 together
Faired, clip on, 2 strokes out on the track the same time as hand shift Indians, battling it out for the overall, worlds collide

thank you. I'm realy proud of her, I did quite a bit of detail work to bring her to this state. she has about 20,400 miles and one thing I forgot to mention is she has the original Darmah tigerhead logo on the side covers. I don't know why I haven't done it yet but as soon as I can, I'll get a decent picture of her and post it.

and as long as I'm posting crappy pictures, I may as well show this one too. she's not really "old-school" yet, but still a guaranteed classic that I would never part with. If darmah is my moto-wife, then she is my moto-mistress.



and this is my, uh, "personal assistant"

Had care & feeding of a 77 Darmah for the last five years. Belonged to my nieghbor when I lived in Maryland. He was in his late 70s and didn't ride anymore. When I moved in, he saw my Norton and decided I was OK. His instructions were to always start the Norton pointed at his house so he could hear it
The Darmah had been sitting, and his son held no interest in it, as it wasn't the right kind of V-twin
The nieghbor had me clean the carbs and rebuild the brakes in preparation of selling it, and then decided he couldn't bear to part with it, so we made a deal whereby I could ride it and he would pay for parts, and I would provide labor, in return for making sure it would be taken care of, and he could at least hear and see it running.
I rode it a few thousand miles, enjoyed it, but when it came time to move, he thought about selling it to me, but at the last minute, his son decided he wanted it now
I suspect the son will just sell it, he thought it was a collector's item and was worth a small fortune, $10K or so. Some idiots think anything old has collectors value.
Liked the bike, but thought it was a bit heavy, and no faster than the Norton.
Got a friend with a GT750 that hasn't been run in years, trying to make a deal with him, I prefer the round case models anyway.

Well, so do I. But I have to wait for my lottery win. They are real pricey here - 10.000 Euro and more. So if you find one - where there is one there might be two. Info me and I will come.

the street I was living on was about a mile long, and the aforementioned Darmah owner was already there. A couple of years ago, my friend with the Gt750 moved to the same street.
When he was moving in, I rode my Commando over to help him. When I rode up, the previous owner of the house was getting the last of his stuff out, and comented on the Norton. We got to talking bikes, and he said he had a GT750 in storage at another garage.
Niether he nor my friend knew the other had bikes, and it turns out the guy moving out has a GT750, and the guy moving in has one!
They get to talking, and the bikes are the same spec, Amal carbs, screw type vavle adjusters, Marzocci(sp?) suspension, etc, they must have been built very close to each other, and both bought their bikes while stationed in Germany! What's the chances?

There was anther guy that lived one street over, he was into Italian stuff too, '76 MG LeMans, Laverda Triple, and a '78 900SS, we started to think we should start our own owner's club
