Motorcycle Pics Taken Before Y2K

I have been scanning many of my old 35mm photos taken before I started using a digital camera for the purpose of writing a ride report. I have found that scanning those old photos, cropping and expanding them results in a picture better than the original. I know many of you have old photos stashed away in a dusty box somewhere. So dust off that box, pull out those memories, scan them and post them here.


I'll start.

Me on my first bike, a 76 KZ400. Pic taken in 1980.



1980 Suzuki GS550E:

My dad (SL 100) and younger brother (we shared the TY80). Probably taken 1974. Matt finish print (why oh why?) from my trusty 110 Kodak Instamatic.

That finger on the front brake isn't gonna have much effect with the front end in the air.....but I bet the set down was interesting with that technique. LOL

Might bring back memories if you had a bike with the Windjammer bags and fairing.

Awesome I'll bet you and your wife have a lot of memories on that bike. That old 110 camera might not have taken the world's greatest pictures, but it's much better than no pic at all.

Ty 80

I have that same TY 80 in my shop, their still out there if you can find one.



The Vetter fairing , the SS model with the built in turn signals , that was the thing back then for sure ... you notice I have one on the 77 Yamaha , even had the lowers , was good in the winter!
