I've only put about 100 miles on this since putting it together, but as soon as the weather (and the roads) clear up I'm excited to get some big rides in on this. (please ignore the mismatched hubs )

Hot pink Protour12 All Terrain Bike made by Raleigh Canada circa 1989. Great little bike that needs a home.

First production bike with disc brakes front and rear
First production bike with alloy wheels
First production bike with 6-spd trans
First production bike with self-cancelling turn signals
First production bike with 'headlight always on' for visibility

I always ran Klotz synthetic injector oil, so was able to turn down the oil injector pump waaaay down so it didn't smoke or foul the sparkplugs.

Those were very cool Yamahas, too bad you had to sell them.
My family had always been mostly Honda riders, although my father did try out a Yamaha "Midnight Special" cruiser back in the 80's between his GL1000's and his CBX. the gloss black paint and golden accents really got his attention back then, I guess because it matched his Goldwing Limited edition that had the same finish. He also considered getting a Honda Sabre, but was distracted by a BMW RT1000, before he can get it.....
At 22 years old already, I think my 1995 Honda VFR750 would qualify in most books as a Classic..... In three more years, it could be considered vintage(?)....... I have kept it since new as I never really found a better bike to replace it.
I don't ride it as much as I did back in the 90's, mostly because the traffic in the Bay area had become so dangerous that it's not much fun riding in most of the surface streets, I mostly just take it in the twisty mountain roads, south of the City on weekends......
I stay with Mobil1 full synthetic motorcycle oil for my bike. The bike has bee running qite well through the yeqrs despite its now, some would say, "antiquated" carbureted induction system. The VFR is actually considered one of the smoothest running carbureted bikes that Honda had ever made. Only thinng that's been affecting it's engine is the alcohol blend gasoline that we have in CA, which seems to be starting to affect the carbs internally (The alcohol attacks some types of rubber) Still runs great most days but it has it's bad days when it seems to not want to idle as smooth as usual. Only thing about owning an older Honda, they only support their bikes part-wise only ten years after the model is taken out of the market., so new parts for my bike are slowly running out in Honda parts warehouses. Really not sure what the future of my bike will be, but it still gives me the grins in my helmet every time I start its V four engine, hear the nice burbrle from the Staintune exhaust system and ride it! And I think that what counts.....

80ies Mondia. My original bike. Got it from my parents for the drive to school when i was 14 back in 1988. Guess the bike is somewhat older since it doesnít show up in the 1988 mondia catalogue. Itís a 5 speed with a sachs/maillard atom wide opening freewheel, sachs huret eco derailleur, sugino aluminium crank, weinmann rims, brakes and fenders, union pedals and dynamo and sachs/maillard atom hubs. Seat tube id 25.4mm. Got a new fork (little longer then the original, thus the spacers) and a new seat recently. Next upgrade will be a suntour v-gt luxe derailleur.

So many red & pink bikes... and so little time!

Here are my two an 1987 English built Raleigh 531c. The Raleigh started life equipped with a complete Shimano 600 tricolor gruppo, and in the mid 90's the previous owner swapped out the 600 components for ultegra and made it an 8sp (he forgot to redish the rear wheel!). Anyway, when I got it last year I decided to set it up oem (I had all of the original components), but decided to take it to Colorado (more and longer hills!) with me so I figured I'd need a triple in front (24x36x46 w/ 14x24 7sp cassette), hence the addition of mid 80's Shimano Deore LX front/rear derailleurs and the LX triple crank.

Okay, so it's not a bike or a photo of a bike, but I picked up this Mercier brochure in deepest France in '74 and just re-found it in my pile of stuff. I think this counts as a pink bike several times removed. That town Chalon-sur-Saone, by the way, was the home of inventor Nicephore Niepce and was the site of the first photograph ever made.

This actually listed as 'Sizzling Peach" and looks pretty cool where the Texas sun didn't bake it. Now it is sort of day old salmon pink

Oh, what the heck.... talk of two wheeling, and at the very least -classic and vintage. I've shared the same.

Fave two'smoke' was my RZ-350, Kenny Roberts bumble bee. Purchased spanking new and before removed from the showroom, the stock exhaust and cat. conv. were pulled and installed a pair of Toomey expansion chambers. Battery box / air intake mods plus rejetted. Pretty awesome little bike.

At the same time, I went full litre and purchased a left over new stock 1982 CBX / 6cyl. 24v, pearl white with blue accent stripes. Then I upped that and installed a turbo, 6 to 1 collector by American Turbo Pak. Good times-

edit: Now when I think of this thread and the color red, I mostly miss my 1986 Suzuki GSXR-1100. Another purchased spankin' fresh new from the dealer. Instaneous scream breaking in, then pulled the cams, made it breath, replaced carbs to 44mm radial flat slides, Yosh stage 3 pipes. Then one track day, fast straight, maybe at 130mph the exhaust can rivets cut through and the exhaust baffle shot out like a cannon. The bike sound obviously changed but did it ever open up and let this fire breath. Yoshimura sent a bigger exhaust- hehe

The RZ 350 was quite a hooligan bike for its time. Lots of fast riders and racers cut their teeth on one. Really helped that King Kenny, GP racing god who taught everyone how to properly drag your knees and toes in turns, helped with their sales. Unfortunately, the EPA had to eventually kill the two strokes in this country. A modern two stroke inline triple, would have been fantastic! The CBX1000....my dad likened the sound of the engine on his CBX (1978, 1st gen, Silver with black accents; with the twin rear shock and no half fairing and not detuned by Honda like the later ones) at high revs and overrun to race engines he heard in the 60's and 70's when he watched the races in Monte Carlo and Le Mans..... Sure wish the family still had the CBX. That would have been a super heirloom keeper!

All of the Yamaha twin 2T displacement variants were such ground breakers for road rashing, er racing. I can remember the first TZ 250 that came into our area, I used to drop by the shop where their mechanic kept his, just to help him do maintenance on the buzz bomb. He did Daytona in the early 70s with it. The ones I remember best were the RD400 Daytonas, with DG aluminum, gold anodized heads, smooth bore Mikuni carbs, special reeds and reed blocks, and a set of the chromed DG expansion chambers and silencers. Thrown on a set of flat super bike bars, some decent rubber and have a blast with them.

Only thing I remember about CBX Hondas was a magazine test on a turboed version, the last picture was of the right side on the engine where the rod had swept through the entire case, after the piston detonated into aluminum shards.

One of my friends had a TZ250 in the early 90's. It was giant killer when he rode it in the twisty mountain roads, just south of SF. He would beat pretty much any other sport bike that tried to keep up with him, regardless of displacement. We really thought he would eventually kill himself because of the speeds he rode.
.....Fortunately he survived to graduate to semi-pro Sportcar racing with the SCCA. He's been racing his modified Mazda RX7 and his Porsche GT2 with great success these past few years. Like I said, a lot of good, fast race drivers cut their teeth on Yamaha 2 stroke bikes!

I always thought that Robert's TZ-750 that Yamaha set up for flat track should have been modified for sidehack MX racing. That thing was just plain evil, wicked, mean and nasty
