There's a 75 GL1000 titled frame and a bunch of (titled) CX and GL500 parts bikes I don't have photos for. But I posted photos of every running operational motorcycle I've owned.



Here's the one that got away: Dad sold his Suzuki RE-5 (rotary/wankle motor) several years before he passed away. I would have loved to restore it.

Charles, years ago a friend of mine in Atlanta owned a wangle, seems to me I remember a really strange exhaust note with that bike, do you remember? Love that picture of your Dad and the world famous GL "250". BTW the thought just occurred to me I have some pictures of Dick at the Amish rally, would you like to have them on a cd?

How did you like that F7? I had a KE-125 as my first bike, which was as descendant of that design

Never could get that F7 running right. I think it needed new crank seals. I cleaned about 15 lbs of goo out of the exhaust, rebuilt the carb with all new parts, rebuilt the auto-lube pump, and it would start, rev in neutral no problems, run down the street, and then bog and die and not make it back up the street or restart. Plug was wet with oil - a new plug and it'd start right up again and do the same thing. I ended up selling it for next to nothing. PO said he had the ports opened up and fitted a larger piston, and either he effed it up or it needed new crank seals or something else was wrong. I had too many bikes to stuff into a 1-car garage at that time so I let it go for $300 or so.

In the picture with the crutches, Is that GL have a cylinder off and blocked off? How did that work, well?

I understand from Gene's comment that that is indeed the case - a 250 cc single GL
I'd like to hear that.

Well, it was driveable. I rode it up and down the street. Vibrated pretty badly, and the jetting wasn't quite right (no airbox), but it did run. I'm going to restore the bike that the motor is in right now, and use the single cylinder for a generator or something. Here's a couple of photos.

Oh, I forgot about the 1987 VF700 "Super" Magna I owned in 2012. Bought it for a pittance, all it needed was some paint and cosmetic work. Here it is shortly before I sold it!

This is number 19... a 2017 Yamaha SCR950. My first brand new motorcycle. I'm currently in the process of tricking it out for adventure touring!

Here's #20!

2017 SSR Buccaneer 250. It's a cute little bike with a 250cc Virago motor and fuel injection. I'm having a ball on it so far!
