I have a 72 CB350-4 taking up garage space at a friend of mines' as I've officially run out of space . Vandal got me going on a vintage cafe racer trip and I've still never done anything with it . One of the guys on the Hawklist ( his site's www.oldrice.com ) told me that I really shouldn't chop mine up since its in good shape but winter here is long and boring ;)
My plan is : red frame , silver bodywork comprised of Airtech vintage bumstop and 900SS fairing with some loudassed Jemco pipes :creep
FWIW , my definition of vintage is 20 years old + . WERA V7 ain't vintage IMO but thats another issue .

It is a Sickness

71 Yamaha AT1 125cc Enduro
74 Yamaha DT 360cc Enduro
74 Bultaco M121 360cc Dirt Bike
80 Honda CB750F (Trying to Sell it)
93 Honda VFR750F

Okay, the last one isn't vintage but I wanted to show how many bikes I have. I DON"T Have a Garage!!! Or a driveway!!! My wife is less than pleased with me...

AT1 leaning on back of house. DT360 in boxes in basement. CB750 and VFR750 on sidewalk in front of house. Bultaco hidden in friend's garage cuz the wife doesn't know about it.

All visitors to my house must walk around bikes through the yard... :) I am "THAT GUY" killing the property values in my neighborhood...

Later
