Looking at your fleet listed under your avatar, that leaves your 1972 Schwinn Suburban and the 1979 Raleigh Comp, certainly and odd pairing.

Just guestimating, but probably half of the bikes I refurbish and remarket are older than the rider buying them.

More than a few C&V enthusiasts turn a few bikes to support their acquisition addiction. You can probably start your motorcycle passion on an incremental basis the same way.
