    Nice looking bike. I was a freshman in high school in 1980. This is what motorcycles are supposed to look like. :~)

    Here is my oldest bike. It was originally my dads bike from 1975. It's a CB750 with a 450 tank, headlight and seat pan. Has an 850 kit in it with RC pipes. Rear wheel is a Harley hoop. Custom painted in pearls. I tracked it down after 35 years and bought it back from the guy my dad sold it to. This is the first motorcycle I was ever on as a kid. I was 5 years old when pops took me for a ride and scared the hell out of me. I have been hooked on anything fast ever since.:evil
    I am presently restoring it back to the way dad had it after he customized it. It will look the same but fresh again.

    De-lurking time.

    My 1966 Triumph T100S/C. The original 'Jack Pine', if you will. Working on getting it back to bone stock.

    Very nice machine you have there. It makes my heart yearn for my old '71 T100C that I sold several years ago. There's something about spring and riding around on an old Triumph that just goes together.
