The 70's sportsters look the best for sure. Strangely I have always wanted a cherry red 76. Tough to find a stock AMF that is in good condition.

I like it from an Americana perspective... not an "I want to own that" perspective.

Bingo. It just looks cool. And if I had one it would probably be sitting in my home office for me to look at. No desire to ride it.

Been having a high school flashback when I was insanely in love with a couple Italian mistresses...



and the bike that started it all for me, in a later more lustful iteration (thanks to my friend who let me ride it)




And the insurance different isn't even that bad...

Desert

I really want one of these for the minimalist aspect and the desert look. Test drove one on Friday. 27 HP isn't really exciting but that's part of it. I think you can make some mods and squeeze 30 HP out of it!
