    Re Kawasaki 500;

    Hope you remember to screw the steering damper on when you thrash this!

    They can be made to handle, MM raced one in the 70s in production races and were quite successful after making a swing arm 1 ½ inch longer and junking the rear jap shocks. . . .

    There's a very attractive young lady working at a pizzeria near my office. She rides an MV Dragster exactly the same as that. It's a real tough job to know what to look at first when I see her come past.

    I could only have a collection like that if I won the lottery lol but they all look great, not sure about the two stroke banger as a few friends in my younger days lost their lives on them inexperienced and to much get up and go and then keeping up the maintenance on all of them would hurt me, but then you can only ride one bike at a time, but I do have a few bikes that I have built up over 45 years of riding, just wish I could have kept the ones I sold over that time, anyway thanks for sharing.

    The little 2 bang trip was a wild child for sure. I drove a buddy's 750 trip and it scared the living bejesus out of me. I never got on that one again, but wish I had both for bragging rights. The old Norton feels like I'm reaching light speed when punched these days.

    That is really a nice collection of very nice bikes....Sort of fantasy inducing because they cross a wide spectrum for dreamers.

    The icebox white H1 brings back many memories. Mine got Koni shocks, bronze swingarm bushings (stock were nylon!) and K81 tires (best available a the time) and still wouldn't stay with a Bonneville on a twisty road.

    You should have made the s/arm 2 inch longer, weld bracing tubes into the frame, Just look at F/bed and copy. . .
    M/M raced one way back in the UK during the 70s and won the production bike championship, what more proof do you need. . . .

    We're talking 1969 and I was a broke-ass 18-yr-old college freshman.

    Besides, the Kaw's ill handling is what turned me back on to British bikes. Until the Z1 came out, anyway.

    We seem to run in similar circle.
    Except your circle is a LOT bigger than mine.

    That's some serious quality, as opposed to just quantity...
