    I had the privilege of visiting there while on a business trip to the UK in 2012. Years later, my mind is still slightly blown. I've got to got to get back there someday.

    i've owned this one for more than 40 years....
    not quite sold myself on this color combo, i think the frame is too bright for the bodywork
    Looks just fine to me. First time I heard one (complete with Jota pipe), it pulled up beside me at a light. I was riding a Rapide and the only way I knew my bike was still running was from the vibration. It sounded like his primary drive was making as much noise as the pipe. I'm tempted to sell off some crap and try to buy that green one. It apparently came through Slater and had some odd stuff like copper plated brake rotors. Very low milage and unmollested, but the thought of buying parts for it (if necessary) gives me the willies.

    Just to keep the vintage race bike theme, I'll add this, although I don't think it qualifies as vintage anymore. Its sitting in the corner awaiting some cash and time.

    funny to think of the island weather....where else would one wear a sweater over leathers!

    tanshanomi: if you get back to that part of the world time your visit to the Festival of 1000 bikes at Mallory it is run what you brung and folks drag out museum pieces just to flog them on the track

    and make time to hop over to the Netherlands and scope the https://www.louwmanmuseum.nl/ not much for bikes but an amazing display of 4 wheelers from horse drawn royal carriages to GP cars

    Here is my 1965 Honda CB77. This is the first new motorcycle I purchased and I have owned it for 54 years. It is also my first race bike. It has gone through a couple of iterations over the years, but it's been in this configuration since 1972.

    I restored it in 2003 and used it for track days until 2013 when I decided that at 70 years of age, to hang it up.

    I have performed all of the modifications myself, as well as fabricating the disk brakes, exhaust system, as well as the fairing, tank and seat.

    Wow, that sure is a nicely-built little Honda. Especially cool that it's been yours all this time, and you've made your own parts; that's somewhat rare to fulfill both aspects.

    Nice that you are going out on your own terms and not a gurney...
