Here's some old school.

Its a link to my 1947 Indian bobber that Chuck Hall and I built in the 70's from a skimpy basket case.

Sweet.

I love plunger frames. Great lines.

First bike was a '52 BMW plunger.

Oh, and as to roundcase Ducati twins... the one bike I've had that I never should have sold.

(wink) Oil filter c.1982

More of a pictire test than anything...

Here's what passed for an oil filter on a 1982 Honda.



It's kind of a pain to change the oil on this thing. Remove Skidpan, remove kickstarter, remove rear brake lever, remove clutch cable, remove right crankcase cover, to drain the oil and get to this stupid little screen.

BTW, LIVESTRONG. Get well soon Mr. Templin. Cancer sucks.

Here is one of the bikes that I rode growing up. A 1971 Suzuki TC120 Cat. It had a 3 speed tranny with a high and low range lever on the side case. (right behind my left heel). This thing would climb a tree in low range and maybe go 50 miles per hour in high range.

This was not my normal riding attire. I was posing as our family was getting ready to go to church. You can tell those are church going clothes, not riding clothes. (Can you believe anyone would were such gaudy clothes, I look like a pimp, and not a very cool one at that)

Just sold this last year to get the M/C count down to only 4.....




It was a '78 SR500. I took the battery out, installed a SuperTrapp and drilled the oil dipstick and epoxied an oven themometer in it's place for a real handy oil temp gauge...It was fun in the mountains near Denver...
