    114011-012619.jpg Somewhere around the spring of 1973, it started life as a 1971 Suzuki TC90 but I wrecked it so many times it had various tanks and paint jobs on it.

    I'm probably 15 or just 16 in this pic,for some reason girls weren't very interested in me and I had plenty of time to ride :lol3:lol3

    I think I might be younger than a lot of people on here but riding almost as long.

    Close...but not quite! Yours is an HQ (c1972 -1974) the wagon in my pic is an HZ (1977-1980). In between was HJ and HX. Same line, but a couple of models in between. Thanks for the HQ pic.

    I've got a post on the thread already.... but I can move the bar back a tad for me.

    This is my second bike - photo taken in, IIRC, 1974 - I'd come home from uni and pulled out the bike I used to ride to school. It's a '49 Matchless 500. My first "bike" was a mid '50's Vespa that we used as a scrambler.

    I sold the bike for $55 to fund my studies a bit further. Would cost 100 times that to get it back, if I could find it.
