Hey all you old farts out there (52').....check out these bikes from an era gone by. But be warned to get your crying and drooling towels ready. I still can remember most of the 74 models because I was in the showrooms sitting them. Such memories.:cool:

Nice bikes!

Hey Fade,
That's a reall good site. I enjoyed looking at the bikes.
I always liked 70s and 80s bikes,they were so much simpler to work on, and easy to improve (at least the Japanese).
I attach a picture of my 1975 BMW R75/6 which I got from my late father and ride it as much as I can.
Actually this is my ride now that the ZR7 is in hospital :(
I try to keep it in top condition, I installed new silencers and reconditioned the seat this year. It looks good and rides really weel for it's age!

Aris, is that an older Volkswagen I see in the garage? I've got an '87 Cabriolet, but I just can't picture a Rabbit with four doors for some reason. I've always loved the earlier FWD Volkswagens-- compact, light, and awesome rally potential.

As for the bike page, I saw a Kawasaki H-1 and a KZ900, but where's the H-2? A 70's motorcycle site with no H-2????

1970s VW Golf

Hi Triple,
This is my mother's 1975 VW Golf, it's one of the very first series and it has four doors. She bought it new Jan 1976 and still drives it!
Cars don't rust in Greece and this Golf runs like new with a 1989 engine from Golf II.
It's the best car for Athens traffic as it is scratched and dented all over. The results is that even taxi drivers having priority wait for you to go through at crossroads ;)

There is one more 70s bike in the garage that hangs from the ceiling. The tank is lying underneath.
There are actually 2 more bikes behind the Golf, my 1957 BMW R26 and my 1983 Yamaha SR500, I 'll get some pictures sometime...
