lol, someone registered for the wrong kind of Bike forum and clearly didn't look at any posts here.

I predict that one won't climb well unless the noisemaker is turned on.

Not a bad looking bike
But I prefer my motorcycles to be monochrome-
and Black or Red
Harley's odd orange-only Harley could get away with selling an orange bike
And I prefer a saddle-seat that can carry two people-
even though my wife had the good sense to rarely ride-

That's HERITAGE right there!
Obsolete is cherished, if you can chrome it.

Aren't they all ultra classic somethings? The one in the picture can't be too authentic, there's no oil leaking out of it.

Dentists do that a lot, check your local Starbucks for a similar jawing over CF bicycles by the tribally dressed DDs.
