What bike from the year you were born?

Recommended Posts

If you could pick the bike of your choice from the year you were born, what bike would that be?

 

For me, it would be the 1964 CB77 Super Hawk 305.

I would pick the 1958 Triumph Bonneville T120. ;)

The T120, not to mention the Matchless CSR of the same vintage, is a fine looking machine. Unfortunately, the reliability didn't quite match its good looks.

I've heard that Triumphs of that vintage were known for leaking oil and leaving a trail of random parts in their wake, but they sure were cool. ;D

As avatar: 1940s Ariel 350. Simple, reliable, fun. The MT-07 of its time.

I grew up when a lot of bikes had the chrome tanks w/knee pads and cool emblems so I love the 'looks' of the bikes from the 50's and 60's. 

 

My bike is this (drum roll) ..................
