The Brough Superior is the most striking to me. Has anyone ever got two First Posts in a row? Does anybody really give a damn?

I vote for the Duc single. I simply must own one some day. You younger folks need to look at this to see what a MOTORcylce is. The designs today are most lacking, IMHO. At least Triuph and Buell have engines that you can see and don't mind looking at. Rocket III excluded of course.

I have to agree with the Markster re the Duc single. Back in the 70's, I long lusted after the 450 single. Maybe the earlier, smaller Duc singles have a bit nicer proportions though.



I need some of these prints. Good excuse to finally learn how to frame prints properly. Hello Highlands Hardware. My Visa card is tanned, rested and ready!

I was enjoying looking the engines until the word "AMAL" penetrated through my caffine starved brain cells and everything went misty.



I'll try again later.

The Kawasaki H1 (Mach III) two-stroke triple caught my eye. This was my first bike (hellava bike to learn on).



A group of these on a late night "mission" down the interstate sounded like a swarm of angry bees.

And, if I want to see any old Japanese engines I just go down to the local motorcycle salvage yard. Won't see any Harleys down there, just foreign junk.
