Thanks for the video. Reminds me of me and my buds back in high school when we rode a lot together. Class of 1972.

Here's my dinosaur. 1975, the first year for left foot shift. I've had it since 1981. Still fun to ride.

Back in the USA

Just returned from Afghanistan a couple weeks ago and have been spending time working on my sporty project started a few years ago. Latest efforts have been lacing 19" front and 17" rear Sun rims for the Conti Trail Attack tires. I do like the Conti Attack series of tires. Have them on my V-strom and wife has them on her Versys as well.

With the upgraded suspension and decent tires, it corners well. Not like my Buell, but hey, what can you expect from 1960 technology. Waiting on a custom made carbon fiber leather flat saddle reminiscent of the original 50's and 60's sporty seat. A few other changes in mind as well. The sporty is one heavy SOB, though.

How about a picture of it next to the SRX600?

Not mine, but if I had a Sporty I'd set it up similar to this. Can anyone tell if it has rearset foot controls?
