My brothers XT500.
My XT600, with performance aged front suspension. RIP
GREAT XT500 shot in the mountains!!!
In response to the question: "Which everyday modern bikes do you think will become future classics? The equivalent of the Honda CB750 or Moto Guzzi V7 Sport, if you like? "
Edgar Heinrich said:
"The R 80 G/S and Yamaha XT500 are there already."
Who is Edgar Heinrich?
"The man in charge of motorcycle design at BMW Motorrad right now is Edgar Heinrich. Hes the new boss of the companys Design Studio, after working his way up through the ranks (with one break) since 1986."
Eventually everything will become a classic! Pretty much everything pre-1980 fascinates me...
Mopeds, enduros, scooters, choppers.
No action shots, but:
the first "dirt bike" I ever rode. I titled the picture '71 Suzuki, but I really have no idea what the bike is. we pieced it together from 5-6 decrepit old Suzukis behind an ex-girlfriends fathers shed. We had decided that we thought it was a '71 T/S 185, but i have no idea how we came to that conclusion. I believe we robbed the rear wheel and carburetor off a slightly newer (early eighties?) RM250.
Did I hear the mention of Hodaka's ? ? ?
This was my first Hodaka Ace 100
Not certain of the year... Hodaka 125 Combat Wombat...
Pic from 1974, Hodaka 125 (very modified for trials) you can see it worked well this day... Still have the "Hottie"
Hodaka 250ED Thunderdog... One of the first in the US...
Hope you enjoyed these ol' Scans...
Window shopping in New Matamoras, Ohio..................
This one belongs to a friend's father. It's spent most of it's life being hauled here and there. Beautiful bike........
Great photos. Like that early Ace.
Yamaha DT 175 I think it is 1978 model
Now that's a right proper bike, Mate!
I am in the process of restoring a 1980 Suzuki PE400, and looking to get the motor/transmission/clutch completely rebuilt.
Can anyone recommend a builder in the NJ or NY area?
Thanks in advance
Looks like my first bike in the 70's. Yamaha DT1
Grandpa on CZ350. Soviet Union.
Had one too...it was my "Japanese Bultaco Alpina" excellent spread of power...used to cruise the trails of Northern Virginia with it.
I'd love to have that Hercules! Rode one in the early 80's. That motor ripped!
Hmmm. Tank, head and front motor mount looks like a Husqvarna. Right side shift.
Ah ha ..... '66 250 Husky
Yep... looks so. The picture is signed "CZ", and I know, that he was riding CZ. But Husquarna... in USSR... sounds almost unreal! Like KTM))) Only a few riders had access to the bikes like KTM in Soviet Union.
Thanks for correcting my mistake.
My grandfather had CZ, Jawa and Ural. Maybe, it's the bike owned by local motocross club.
Every child in our family learned to ride on this. My son still rides it.
