I have way too many favorites to be able to pick only one. I really love Norton Commandos...particu larly Production Racers. The 1936/37 BMW R5 was gorgeous...so was the '76 Guzzi 850 Le Mans. I also have a soft spot for the '65 Bonneville (ridden by both Dylan and McQueen). I could keep this up for a long time...

If I was going to pick a bike to restore, I expect I'd pick a 1955-1969 BMW Twin. The bikes didn't vibrate much, so they seem to have held up better over time. In addition, parts are plentiful and values are climbing on a steady basis. I toured all over the Southwest on my 40 year old R60 in the late nineties. It never let me down...

I used to have this:



Man I'd love to have the front wheel off of that for the 4-leading-shoe brakes, for the Norton! I had one years ago, value would have gone up more than gold.
Something wistful and amusing, yet poignant.

I have a very soft spot for the Panther, too. I love big singles.

The good years look a lot like Vincent, also an engine to drool over.

When you spend more time spannering than using, you have reached toy saturation.....
