Heh! My first bike was a '71 CL100 - identical to the CB but for the "high pipe". I had a (I think a '72) CB100 a neighbor gave me for parts that I used to keep it running the two or three times it broke down, mainly due to age.



It and my second bike were stolen from me when I about 18. Circumstances I will not relate again, for I will be P!SSED when done......



Man, I miss that bike sometimes. Top speed was only about 60mph, but it could get up there quick enough to make you giggle like a schoolgirl.

If you hear the wail of a KS125 comin' up on ya at about 7K with the muffler removed (1 screw) for sound effects. If a blur of lime green goes flyin' by at close to 70MPH! (indicated, with a strong tailwind and steep downhill and in best "racer" tuck), it could be me. Burnin' caster bean based earl just cause I could and it is right.



Hard to beat a big two-stroke. I'm crunching heads.

The first bike I ever rode on was a '69 Duc 350. I was a 3 year old passenger. My first bike as a rider was a '71 SL100 and I also owned a CB500T. Of course I got the SL in 1984 (when it and I were 13) and the CB in 1999. About 18 months ago, I almost sold both. In the end, I couldn't part with the SL and it still sits in a garage 600 miles away. I did sell the CB to an enthusiastic buyer. I was glad to see it get a good home. After 5 years, my Monster may get sold this Spring. I'm going to try and keep it while buying a new bike, but it doesn't look possible. I mourn every vehicle I pass on, but in the end, you gotta keep moving.

Ring ding ding ding ding ding..... Bridgestone 90. What a chick magnet in 1969 ! Only tools necessary were a sparkplug wrench and a screwdriver to put in the little hole to turn it. I loved that bike. too bad the other Jap manufactures forced them out of business. The Bridgestone GT350 was the ultimate and waaaay out of my reach in those days. My buddy had a CB160. I thought that was a rocket. Two cyl, four stroke WOW......

Anybody remember this one on the Jawa 90? Ah, the bliss filled days of youth. Francisco brown label and Super 76 gasoline...the smell, the sound, the scabs!

Even though the HTML guy messed up one paragrah going from the old to the new MO, it still is true, you can go home again.

I glanced at a Jawa on Craigslist the other day.
