You mean AMF, right?
It’s a year older than me so got to count as old school.
I had this as a long-term test bike in 1997 or so. It was a Sportster Sport with adjustable suspension front and rear, a cartridge fork, dual front discs, and some other trick stuff Harley naively thought made it a viable alternative to a Japanese sportbike. It was the only loaner I ever got from H-D that I thought seriously about buying. I picked it up at the fleet center in L.A. and rode it home to Oregon, and when I had squeezed every ounce of editorial use out of it and could no longer justify keeping it I called Harley to ask where they wanted me to take it so they could have it shipped back. The answer was, and I'm not kidding, "What Sportster?" They had no record of the bike existing, never mind it being in my possession. Since it didn't exist, I couldn't buy it--the paperwork on non-existent motor vehicles is hellishly complicated--so I eventually handed it over to the local H-D dealer, who, when he called the factory, got the same answer as I did. He eventually sold it, though I have no idea how, and to this day I'm pissed he didn't call me before he did.
That's a GREAT story
1992 BMW R100GS recently freshened up cosmetically. It still runs great. I'll upgrade the suspension over Winter.
It was a great Summer evening for a ride last night.
75 XS650 , pic taken in 78 Edwards Colorado.
My best friend's dad on his Mondial 125 in Northern Italy, late 1950s.
I had the same bike, my first motorcycle, and added a black Vetter fairing for a similar-looking package. Wish I still had that bike.
Recently got license plates for the bike I bought in non-running state and have been fixing for the last two months

Too dam hot for a ride here. Worked on the swamp cooler and jumped in the pool.
My phone mates standing in front of my 91 XR600r on our 86 mile dual sport. Beat the heat by waking up at 3:15 am and being on the road at dawn. Much cooler at the crest of the sierras!
The central Fl. Helmet House/Joe Rocket rep has 1 of every color of those 400-F's. Yours is a very nice bike
couple of my daily riders. had both almost 20 yrs. each now
^ Wow, some interesting hybrids there! You've really made those bikes unique - there must be some good stories for each one.
You ruined him. I support that 100%. I took my little dude on my Bonneville about 4 years ago just like that. Except no helmets. Or registration/license/insurance/inspection. He was SCREAMING "Go faster!!!!" with his arm up in the air. He thought we were doing a wheelie when the forks would unload. I have a pic somewhere but CPS need not see.
My first bike build. Purists; don't worry. I bought 2 cheap and restored the nicer one. I built this to look like an old, worn out race bike rather than a traditional cafe, that I can actually ride:
That gets a big thumbs up from pretty much everyone, myself included
