Someone should get Gman to come to the picnic and bring one of those machines... either... I'd be happy!

This is my '82 GS1100E, an oldie but still has the legs to play with the kids. It has an 1140 kit in it, aftermarket cams, smoothbore carbs, Kerker comp pipe with the comp baffle (you car shove your fist through it),and a Yosh clutch.

1976 Yamaha XT 500 purchased new, ridden stock for 1,000 miles, then thoroughly cafe'd. Still in use (occasionally) currently.



Ceriani forks, Lockheed (no, not AP!) calipers, Morris magnesium wheels, Vesco seat, etc. Strictly old school, and a ball to ride. All up weight 241 pounds, and gets 80 MPG on the highway!

Thank you, I'm the second owner of the Superhawk. The original owner gave me the bike. I have boxes of spare parts and the original bill of sale from the dealer!

My close friend and long time riding buddy had his 305 shperhawk totally restored. I'm still kicking myself for not buying it when it was for sale.

I've had several offers for mine. I will not sell it, for some sick reason I like riding it! Mine was in a race and wrecked, that's why it has a fiberglass tank on it. The front end is off a Scrambler. The pipes are not original (I have the originals). I have no plans on going back to stock......

My first bike, 80 CB 750 Custom. Bought it for 400, got it running, then sold it for 2000. Had to make room for the 03 919.

My first post on this sight.Been lurking for a couple days and cant get enough.
Since I havent seen any old Ninja's,I'd figure I'd offer this old "85" up.I've kept it in original condition all these years besides the installation of a new kawasaki crate engine from 86 (1000r) and carbs.Still have the original but doubt if it will ever go back in unless someone offers me an obscene amount of money for it.
Great sight!!!

this is my 1966 Triumph T120R purchased from the widow of the original owner last year. Presently, the freshly powder coated frame is on my work bench, awaiting re-assembly.

I love it!! I clearly remember the first time I saw one. Some older boys in a campground where my family was staying had one. I was offered a ride on the back, that I eagerly accepted ...It was also the first (and last) time that I was taken "snipe hunting" !

Here's a mid 70's CZ125 that I bought from the original owner in the early 80's. It had about 925 miles on it at the time and about 15K when I sold it in 1989. It was slow, heavy, shifted like shit and had terrible brakes, but it was still alot of fun and I rode the piss outta the thing! Wish I had kept it!!

I'd love to have an old VFR like yours, drewvir. I'm big on history, and the red,white and blue colors are awesome.

thanks, it was a cool bike. i got a lot of looks and thumbs up riding that interceptor.the radial tires worked miracles.i miss that bike,if it was a vf1000r it would've NEVER been sold.

the magna was a great bike too. it felt alot faster than it really was.
