    A few years back I bought a 81 Cb750 from a buddy in CT with intentions of riding it back to Colorado. The rotor failed before I left Connecticut. Found a used one and that one failed in Kansas City. Had to rent a uhaul to get it home. Really ticked off wife number 1.

    Once Honda switched to permanent magnet rotors, the charging systems became completely reliable. V45, V65 Sabres, 550,650,700 nighthawks, ascot, magmas, shadows, etc. All completely reliable. And most of those are UJMs.

    the regulator/rectifier setups have caused the most heartburn after those mentioned... and I learned the hard way not to trust an old Suzuki GS' charging system.

    Never heard of these bikes but the engine design sounds pretty cool:

    The Square Four is a motorcycle produced by Ariel between 1931 and 1959, designed by Edward Turner, who devised the Square Four engine in 1928. At this time he was looking for work, showing drawings of his engine design to motorcycle manufacturers.[5] The early engine with "two transverse crankshafts"[2] was essentially a pair of 'across frame' OHC parallel twins joined by their geared central flywheels, with a four-cylinder block (or Monobloc) and single head.[6] The idea for the engine was rejected by BSA, but adopted by Ariel. Thus it became the Ariel Square Four.

    1950 Ariel Square Four 1000 ccs - $13500
