You want 5 for the deep six though eh?

1. Honda Shadow Aero
What's wrong with the Honda Shadow Aero? The Shadow A.C.E. is (was) probably on of the best Harley clones going. I mean, if you're going to imitate someone...

I'm not sure which model it is but they look like one of those press metal toys from the 40's, the one I saw was a pale green and white. Realistically I don't care for any of the Japanese cruisers though I'm sure they're fine bikes, just not for me.

Some of the YamaStar ones are OK but I wouldn't own one. Japanese sportbikes and standards like the FZ1, Z-Rex, B1250 and Connie 14 are a whole 'nuther story and I would be happy to have one in the garage....

Default What? No Dreamcycles?

#1: 1959 Honda 150 Dreamcycle
#2: 1960 Honda 305 Dreamcycle
#3: 1961 Honda 250 Dreamcycle
#4: Any Honda pink/green Dreamcycle
#5: Any Year or Color, with white wall tyres

Oh, and the 1967 CB450 4 speed with the exploding kick start shaft that locked the whole motor up tight. Made an excellent paper weight, or coat rack after that.

Is this the one (courtesy of BikePics)?

BikePics - 2001 Honda Shadow ACE 750

Aside from the rear fender's inside radius being "off" and the tank seam, it's not bad looking.

And aside from it being one of the most underwhelming bikes in history.

Yeah, his wife rides a Rebel and a scooter but won't ride to work on her own bike. She *has* to ride with him.

Which sucks double for him since they both work here.
