Happy days! You know a shoulder check leads nicely into looking right round to where you need to go. Adds lots of in-turn stability.

Sweet find!

Always loved those things...a True Classic.
She'll dig it - and ALL the thumbs-up she's gonna get.
Those are we-loved bikes, seems like everyone "used to own one", or knows someone who did.

Well i did it I passed my permit today. Watch out world here I come. Man I'm soooo excited about riding and getting better this summer. With my great teacher R6roller I'm picking it up very quickly. Hope to see some of you out and about my fellow riders.

Can you tell just from looking at a bike it it's a kick start? I guess if I were close enough, I'd see no starter button?

The kick start lever is the first clue.

You youngsters have no idea how good you have it!

Yes, I am an irascible old fart!

You might want to throw a helmet in with those boots.

Really jealous, I have a serious love for 70s bikes and this one is named aptly "gorgeous".

Have fun and be safe

At a buck 40 soaking wet, I don't think it would take too much to launch me very far . I will find out tomorrow, the ponies are tucked away for the night.
