One of my favorites from a thread last year:



And the insane team incomplete airhead by advrider Sakamura(?):




A good read about the above bike at www.teamincomplete.com.

Well, a long, long time ago... In a place far away...

I rode this, 1974 850 Norton Interstate MKIV, Euro model.

Clubman bars, Dunstal exhaust and cross-over rearsets. 12V coils. Koni or maybe S&W shocks, I had both. Ferodo brake pads front and rear. and Irish Dunlop TT100's. The seat came from RC Engineering back in the day. Union Jacks from Harry's Motors In Denver. Real mechanics there. I sold that bike for no good reason. Plenty of room in the garage, and no bills. Stupid. Put 68,000 miles on it. That bike got me my first mechanic job, at a BMW dealer.




Yeah, I miss it.

I really need to get a better pic of my 'lemon'. I just got it home last weekend and have started cleaning it up some. (took the crappy mirrors off etc.)

Well, I removed the bags, mounts and the fairing yesterday from the Guzzi, so I guess the lemon is now some kind of a cafe racer...
