Love the Triumph and the Norton.
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.
A new H-Box? Where did you find it?
Another pic of my daughter on the '73.
Both very nice Jay.
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've got a few...
My first bike, 1971 SL125
RD400 Race bike
RZ350 Race Bike (we were acting goofy the night before the race)
Here's my 33 year old... She's an '83 Honda Ascot my dad bought new and passed onto me about 10 years ago.
I like Red Ascots
82 XL 500 R
It's not perfect,, But it puts a smile on my face every time
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
....being shown at Motoring Fest 2016 in McPherson, KS along with a few other Honda's of mine.
.....as well as this row of mostly Honda's back at the shop.
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.
My 1967 CD125A, aside from the after market pipes, mirrors, tires and battery it is original. I had to line the tank.
1978 XS special, all original except for oil cooler and the tires.
Recently sold from my collection
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.
New to me 72 Moto Guzzi Eldorado.
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.
My 1984 GPz 750 on the trailer after picking it up, only 19000 kms on the clock , so far
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).
