yes, I said that because of the multiple threads and opinions going on here regarding "vintage" "classic", et al.

This is a 1980 KZ750 LTD I had until I recently donated it to a friend. I rode it everywhere, as did my son before he went into the Army. It didn't look so good when I gave it away, but I am hoping my friend gets it back on the road again.

We've got a week and a half left for people to get their votes in on what we consider to be vintage.

My BMW R75/5 project.
Luckily, the motor was already done. R100 top end, BMW hot cam, lightened flywheel, Mikuni's, Dyna Ignition, short ratio rear end.
I've since converted it to a long wheel base as the short wheel base config was just too twitchy.
I've added sandblasted and clear coated Lester wheels, a braced swingarm.
Still trying to decide what class in AHRMA to commit to.
It runs really well and sounds even better.
I've done a trackday at B/W couple years ago and that's where I learned that the short wheel base was crazy.

Hey Vintage Cafe,

Fun thread, wonderful bikes!


2012-10-25_16-16-56_763 by San Francisco Motorcycle Club, on Flickr

Here's my 1973 Triumph Tiger and Kalle's 1948 Indian Chief ... we rode
them to Death Valley from San Francisco for an AMCA Rally ...


DSCN9693 by San Francisco Motorcycle Club, on Flickr

Titus Canyon ...

We're planning, in a vague fashion, to ride them on the Sheetiron 300 this
season, on the theory that we'd have ridden whatever bike we had
back in the day ... we'll keep an eye on the weather ...

see you around the campfire,
-- SFMCjohn
