Total = 88 (80 without the buick)

These are just the complete vehicles - I mush have another 3 cb750 engines and 4 kawasaki H1/H2 engines lyring around.

If we throw my father and brother's bikes in the mix then we have:

1979 Cb750 F - 4
1986 ZX1000 - 4
1997 FatBoy - 2
for an extra 12 which is 100 (116 if I count the '57 and '90 corvettes).

If there is a special hell for coveting motorcycles, I have my own parking space.

All those on operable Geeto!
It depends what you mean by operable? To be fair the only non operable one is the dream - has had a broken ring for years and has been torn down to fix it for years. Was a good running bike before blowby started.

Everything else has spark and compression, and if I were to put fuel into it would run (exept one H1 and the T500s whose newly rebuilt engines are sitting on the workbench waiting to be put back in). About half the bikes are rideable right now as is. Another 1/4 of that need brake service from sitting and tires (tires are the last thing I do before registering so some have been waiting a long time for tires), but run fine. The two t500s just had the bottom ends rebuilt and as soon as I get small pieces in the mail to finish putting the motors back in I will.

My father, Brother, and I have a group policy which makes good insurance for vintage bike so cheap it is amazing, but the only down side is there can only be 4 bikes on the policy at one time. I have one other policy, but the fleet insurance for all those bikes is so damn much that I am content with only two bikes being registered at one time.

If less than 1 days work is required to be riding then it is operable to me (some are mothballed so undoing the storage procedures to ride one would take at least an hour).
