The only person I've talked to that rode one said it was flat out the hardest pulling bike he's ever ridden. If that don't put a smile on your face I don't know what to tell ya' LOL

Actually, I think Honda sold more units in the US than HD did in 03. I know MCN (US) reported the numbers. I may be wrong, but that's what I remember.

Default Re: The Might Pinto

Pintos! I had a 1976 Pinto Pony MPG Sedan, automatic. No power anything, turned like a 51 De Soto, with flat tires.



It finally ended up with a Holley 390, ISKY Cam, headers, tweeked distributor. That 2.3 litre motor was sweet, all standard SAE on the outside, metric on the inside. 5 mains, with a 75 lb. crankshaft. German Ford.



With the MPG gearing, that little bugger would top out at around 115 mph. Used to ***** off, and beat, psudo-sports cars like the Porche 924.



Man, every time some fool starts badmouthing Pintos, I want to punch 'em. I pity da fool...



Your Plymouth sounds like something out of the Blues Bros. Cop tires, cop engine, cop brakes...etc..

Kawasaki had an EFI KZ in the 70's which I'm pretty sure predates any turbo made by the big 4, which were an 80's thing.

It kinda depends on your location. Where do you live?

Default Re: Fix it again, tony

850's! Ha, you're talking to someone who owned two.



I especially liked the "Valve Bend Option" when the miserable rubber-band timing belt would break.



Or the marvelous "Marelli Prince of Darkness"?



But the best was when the head would rot, from not using a precise 60/40 ratio of coolant/water.



Much better than the 500 (crash box).

Well, yeah, but that's also because Honda sells scooters, off-road bikes, and sportbikes, none of which Harley sells. Harley far outsells them in streetbikes.

In short, his Goldwing will either be parts on eBay or he'll buy parts on eBay for it... just like me and my '78, which is worth $2000 whole and running but should bring $5000 in pieces. I bet a 1978 Dyna in running condition will bring $5k in either condition.

Default Re: But what about the future?

Thats seems to be a biger threat to all mofos love.

All the folks putting open drag pipes on their HDs, and Yosh Ti pipes on their rice burners. The more anoying we let our bikes get the more laws they pass against us.

A town I know of has passed a noise ordenance for the main street, applies to any noise, bikes, cars, radios, street mimes, and it has survived its first court challenges. The outdoor restaurant patrons where complaining to the city fathers about the loud bikes going by, so they cast a broad net.

Default Re: Man...

...that thing is wild looking. Check out the exhaust manifold, looks like something off an old Cleveland, or Indian. Too much.
