Something so cool about the simple air cooled beasts with steel frames and bikini fairings. Modern street fighters are for the most part way too swoopy for me, except the speed triple and the monsters. I guess the xr1200 is close, but I just can't drink that cool aid...if harley put the helicon in it, then maybe... but I digress...

anyone else like modernized 70's and 80's superbikes?




Not mine but cool as hell...............

Some nice old muscle bikes here.

Here is my contribution (apologies for the poor photo).

Suzuki GS1000G with lots of powder coating.
1145 Cosworth pistons & gas flowed head. Tuned for bottom end and there was enough of that to pull away in 5th.
Harris competition exhaust along with K&Ns gave her a suitable roar.

Ok. You REALLY need to post some better shots of that GS1100.

They were taken over 2o years ago. I will need to rummage through my old photo packs and see if there are any more of her.

A true classic, and today much cooler than the latest sports tackle
