    Gawd I love SR500s, it looks much better with spoke wheels but either way she's a beauty. I WILL own another some day.

    I've always had a soft spot for thumpers, the Ducati bevel drive single is a work of art.

    I think I'm going to like this forum.

    Drif10,

    I just picked up an '82 RD350 last week here in S. California. Can you PM me? I'd like to ask questions about yours.

    How old do we go ? This is my grandfather on my dads (at the back of the photo) Matchy. Circa mid 50's. They both had bikes but mainly indians & matchless. There wasnt a lot around then. My dad still talks about serving with the yanks & them letting him & his mates borrow their army WLA's for a day out on a bike. They were just dirt farmers & to have a bike given to them to ride when the wanted was alright by them they reconed.

    1971 Moto Guzzi Ambassador, also has a sidecar. Rescued last year from cobwebs & neglect, covered with about an inch of windblown red Sedona, AZ dust. The original owner bough it new -- gift to himself for his 70th birthday. Rode it up & down a dirt road near his house, followed occasionally by his wife in their car, to "keep an eye on him." Don't know why she didn't ride in the sidecar.

    What I meant to say was....

    Ambos and Eldos are mostly samey same as far as looks go. Eldo has the 5 speed and 100 more CC. The trick bit is to put an eldo crank and pistons in the ambo :evil
