Inspiration from the past!

Saw this on eBay. There are some interesting ideas we can admire and copy. Check out the pics.

Hi Chico,

A great post as I had these this listing myself a few days back. I'm very tempted to bid as it's such a stunning bike but alas I need a new Jeep as mine has just turned 360,000 miles and is in need of retirement.

Wouldn't it be nice of one of our more wealthy members here grabbed this beauty.

Cheerio,

Roy

Roy, it sounds very romantic but my experience with older bikes (not this old) is any indicator, riding that bike is for only short distances and then push her to the side of the road and get picked up and spend hours repairing the beast. Parts are probably unobtainium as well. The original purchase is just a down payment.
On the other hand, this old bike would look great in my living room as a beautiful sculpture. It might incetivise my wife to leave me. Hum-mm, that's an interesting thought.

It figures that this shows up AFTER I purchased a 2016 THRUXTON 1200 R with 908 miles.......

Okay, that’s my other dream! In all seriousness, the classic BSA‘s, triumphs, and even Royal Enfields represent exactly that itch that my Bobber is meant to scratch. Sometimes it even works...
