    Norton Electra. i think it was a 350 or 450cc
    First electric start Norton, reversed polarity on the"dynamo" to crank the engine over.
    Didn't work too well.
    I was in the Biddeford Inn in 1975. ran into my brothers Airforce buddy, Bike Nut named Bob Gray>
    Know him? Had a cool PanHead chopper that had a Marijuana leaf in the clear coat on the tank.

    Anyone seen it? It seems oddly appropriate for this thread. IMDB gives it 5/10 stars. I'm still going to give it a chance.

    I watched it once and gave it away to a friend. I think he watched it once and gave it away. It's sort of like Eraserhead. You see it and say, "well, at least I've finally seen it". But a lot of people like it. I guess I should say I also didn't like "Vanishing Point".

    Is this Julie Newmar from an episode of Route 66?

    I have seen it, and I have to give it 10 outta 10 for the bare naked shots of that totally hot little bird!
    It's actually a great movie.

    Here's a bit of trivia, motorcycle style that is related. What was the naked chick in Vanishing Point riding when Kowalski saw her?

    Quite possibly the best picture of an 80 Kawasaki 1000 LTD ever taken. I had this poster on my bedroom wall for quite some time.

    First off...this is a great thread! It's great to see the old pics (& some new ones).

    Just picked up a 1982 CX500C the other night, and I am looking for ideas for the bike I have always had a desire to own. The one I got may be the donor bike. So MIOB's girl's bike is a possibility. Or, a version of the WTF500 dual sport!

    Followed his post about the CX build on the Dutch website and later, found these pictures of a CX500's over on www.hondaCX500.nl:
