I think that was the first thing I removed when I bought my 305 Superhawk in 1965. Useless and uncomfortable.

Plus, I wanted the girls arms around me, not holding on to a strap.

it would appear not.

Works for me. Maybe not in the spirit of the thread, but it ain't the first side road we've been down. Adventure is where you find it. I'd take a ride with her

This looks like the chippy from the movie Grand Prix.

"Smoke?"
"I don't smoke"

"Drink?"
"I don't drink"

"Well, what do you do?"

Sorry, I couldn't find any cool jeeps to post and and I'll be damned if I'll post a pic of a new bike or a modern "retro themed" rendition. Readers will have to settle for this:



And a couple more of just the motor, cause these bikes were the bomb:

Thanks for the pics of the Crockers, and the YL with them. I never knew about Crockers until recently. They are simply beautiful!
