That's got to be the best looking bike Morini's ever made, but I agree, it would be tough to give it a decent thrashing at that price.

That Enfield is nice. Any way to record the sound of the motor on that kind of ride?

Heaps of atmosphere in those pictures.

Motorcycle is gorgeous too. I know mine's growing into similar look, in due time: it's a natural evolution.

I thought I'll post a little update on my scrambler build. As you can see I'm working hard to make it look anything but the stock FT. And I will succeed, or die trying...

NO. They missed the mark. Seat's too big, square swing arm?! And look at that engine.

But this is comming form a guy who always compares that retro Triumph with a volkswagen new beetle:




Kawasaki did it right with the W-bikes, but the way these 'old' English bikes try to hitch a ride on the reputation of the legendary old English bikes is distasteful in my opinion.

Thought I would share my custom 1978 KZ400 scrambler with you guys.

Some pics with the Jerry cans:





And some without the Jerry cans. I prefer it without.
