Thought this might be a cool thread in the middle of winter when there's not a lot to do but play on the computer. deal

I'll kick it off with pictures of some of my past machines....Wish I had a few of them back! I'll admit up front that I'm a bike aholic...I'm sure there's support groups for guys like me big

1950 Sunbeam S7 Deluxe (I'm wearing an old helmet that I got at a BMW rally in the swap meet section ) This was a cool bike. All aluminum in line twin cyl overhead cam engine. Shaft driven with a underslung worm gear. This bike had the "Fat Boy" look back before that look was cool.




96 Buell S1 Lightning - Highly Modified.




Sears Twingle. Twin cylinder with one carb. Both cylinders were open to a common cylinder head/combustion chamber. Pretty crazy design and had a unique sound.




66 BMW R60/2 and Steib LS200 Hack




61 Lambretta TV175 Series II (Ended up installing a bolt on 190cc reed valve top end on this scooter along with a Mikuni flat slide carb! It would do 75mph+)




R1150GSA - Awesome bike!




1960? Vespa VBB 150cc.




95 BMW R1100RS




96 Buell S1 Lightning - This was my second S1




62 BMW R27 250cc Single




HD 883 Sportster. (Taken on our way to the Canadian boarder during spring break)




74 Norton 850 Commando




BMW R1150RS




63 BMW R69S and Steib LS200 Hack




Honda Z50 Chrome Special




Greeves




58 Cushman Eagle




Honda CT70H




94 BMW R100GSPD (This was my second PD...the color of this one never grew on my)




Un-restored Harley Davidson Hummer

Here's a few I've owned and some that are still around. Troy341

'86 GSX-R750 that I, my wife and a friend painted. Kinda wish that I hadn't sold it.


'89 GSX-R750. Same story about paint. After a friend dumped it, it became a race bike and I still have it although in pieces.


'99 Yamaha R6. A couple of friends got tired of seeing me race my ass off on a slow '89 GSX-R and bought me a newer race bike. Did O.K.


Current race bike. '68 Honda CB160. For sale after I repaint it.


The bike I always wanted in high school. Still have it. Bitch rest was on for one road trip and is no more.


The Gixxasauras. '89 GSX-R750 with a 1100 motor. Currently in line for restoration, read "in boxes".

Lots of neat photos of some neat bikes. Sure brings back memories. I owned a Vespa 150 just like the one in the photo. It was my 2nd two wheeler, an upgrade from my used Cushman. The Sears Twingle was manufactured by Puch, as I recall.

The Old One

The red one is my 1980 Yamaha 1100 Special that I owned for 22 years and rode for 22,000 miles...weird eh? Last i heard the 1100 lives in Asotin. I hope its still cherry and is on the road making smiles.
I sold it when I got this '99 Vmax. I know that showing the MAX pix is cheating since I still ride it, but I love the odd brutish looks of it. Lordy is that thng hard on tires!


Hope this worked!

Yes, that is a piece of a milk jug which was a desperate attempt to keep the rotor from warping at the end of the straight at Spokane.

I did get a lot of use out of those leathers, Vanson makes a great product! Here is a pic from just before I retired them.
