  2. 1970s bikes were pretty cool.

    Vibration as bad as they say? I came really close to buying one about ten years ago.
     

  3. Yup! Routine tightening of stuff was the lifestyle. Once my headlight fell off at night on the freeway. I luckily found all the parts and was able to reassemble. We were tougher then: No helmet or protective gear, no turn signals, one mirror about 3 inches in diameter that vibrated so much you could only tell there was a car back there someplace, but not much else.
