    The guy that does my engine machining work has one he bought in 1970. Slid sideways into a truck in 71 and bent the rear shock. Never rode it again. Just sitting there in excellent condition, I need to find a way to buy it from him. He said his kid doesn't want it.

    Ya know, way way back in 76, the Black Bomber could've been my first bike. If my dad and I were maybe a couple of ours earlier, literally.
    We were on our way in town to look at the bike, and it passed us in the back of a pick-up truck. My dad had just upgraded to a CB500-4
    from a 70 CB450, so he was comfortable with having a look at the Bomber for me. Oh well.
    Aging fart on a soon to be antique. 86 GSXR750, 883 Cosworth kit, head milled .015, 5 angle valve job, Yosh Stg 2 cams and spring kit, Extrudehone porting, Mikuni RS38s, Hindle exhaust, Falicon crank work, Carrillo rods, 17\" Dymag wheels, EBC rotors and pads, SS lines, Ohlins shock, \"Ti\" rear spring, Raceteched forks, 127 rwhp, 10.82 @ 130.7 in the 1/4. Not the bestest or fastest, but pretty frikkin tough.
