    Flash posted a story about restoring a 1978 R100S.

    Great pictures, and a better story. Simple but hearfelt.

    I have been thinking a lot about giving up the old bikes in favor newer stuff.

    Flash reminded of why the old bikes are special.

    take a look, it is worth your time, I promise.

    I sold my 02 R1150R and went retro again. Nothing can beat an old air head for character.
