Are those bikes that unreliable
I rode a R90S once,sounded like a Sunbeam S8 and the wooden brakes made a strange whistling sound when applied.
Actually slowing down must have been an option.
The foot pegs were not inline either.
I likened the experience to driving a two wheeled Morris Minor.

Give them their own forum I say (far away) ,it would make 'Old's Cool actually cool.
It is cluttered as is.

Airheads poisoned our water supply, killed our crops and delivered a plague unto our children.....and stuff.


Oh the drama.
As riveting as a brake issue can be on a CB750, Old school is Old school. If you must separate Airheads, seperate them all.
It's nobody's fault that there are all those old BMW's out there still loved, except maybe BMW..

the airheads when compared to other bikes by leaps and bounds flood the forum with what amount to mostly wrenching threads which curiously don't get moved to the wrenching forum where any reasonable person would concede is where they belong. if they for whatever reason will not be moved it would seem reasonable to have an airhead specific forum where all of these urgent issues of bent mirrors, torn seats, dead batteries, power washing questions etc. etc. could be given the undivided attention of the airhead faithful while at the same time not diluting legitimate old school topics worthy for wide scale consumption.

It appears reasonable, but your choices of words and the fact that you ignore the inane threads on other brands makes me think you are being slightly biased.

What would do you consider legitimate Old School topics worthy for wide scale consumption if not 30 year and older bikes?
