    I had a '75 KZ400 but it had a disk brake in the front. Was that just an option? The old KZ400's always make me smile.

    [​IMG] I also do a bit pf photography in my spare time!

    This is my 85 BMW K100RT, it started out as a restoration then it became obvious that it was too far gone and my angle grinder came out to play.

    I've taken off the clip-ons now as it was like riding in some sort of stress position (they were lower than the seat) so it has low flat bars instead. It tends to get taken apart in the winters to get upgraded, this year it got an underseat battery and a new headlight.
    Next on the list is a nicer exhaust. I'll try to get some updated photos of the old girl at some point.

    Wow, nice job. The exhaust looks fine to me but then again I can't see it. More pics please.

    I can't possibly capture the whole stable, but this is a sampling of my 30 yr or older (actually all are 40 and and older)
    Here's one I just finished restoring and am quite proud of......1961 CB92 Honda
    [​IMG]

    ....being shown at Motoring Fest 2016 in McPherson, KS along with a few other Honda's of mine.
    [​IMG]

    .....as well as this row of mostly Honda's back at the shop.
    [​IMG]

    With many more waiting their turn to be ridden, shown or restored if not already rare survivors.

    I try to ride as many different bikes from the '60's and early 70's as I possibly can, and No I don't feel the least bit guilty, that I'm preserving as many as I can in 100% Stock form, rather than cutting them up or just thrashing them.:lol2

    My 1967 CD125A, aside from the after market pipes, mirrors, tires and battery it is original. I had to line the tank.

    Beautiful Honda! Finding original pipes for that model would be really tough. Most of the small twin Honda's had pipes so large that the little engines just could not heat them up enough to prevent them from rusting out in humid climates. Those pipes although thinner, look great on the bike and represent the original style well. Congratulations on a fine looking model!

    Actually ran across a set a couple of times, but at 1500 to 1700 USD... I passed on them.

    This little guy went to a collector and is now in a local museum. 469 kms when I picked it up. New tires, carb job and re-line the gas tank. It had been sitting in a house since 1982.

    Fresh pic of my '69 Honda. Very un-original, but it's original to the era I first built it as a cafe (mid-70's).
