For those classic bike fans...

How gorgeous is this?
I went to collect a wheel for my old XT trailie today and the guy had this in his workshop. A little different from the rows and rows of badly restored Bonnevilles...
I had one when I was 18 (yes, no bull, I had a Dresda 750/4 when I was 18) and it's the first time I've seen one with a CB750 lump since:-

That is stunning. Love old bikes.

My grandfather went out and bought himself a Triumph 650 when he was 16. He was taught to ride by a bloke called Stan I think who also taught TE Lawrence to ride - Lawrence of Arabia was born in Wales.
