What's in your Stable?
      #343030 - 08/10/08 02:36 PM

Many of you have more than one ride. What's currently in your stable of bikes? Which one have you been riding the most of late?

I am currently at two. Been riding the Uly more often lately, only because it is the newest to the stable. In fact my Speedmaster whined at me this morning, so I took it out for a quick 150 miles.

Sometimes it's difficult to decide what to ride. Today it was this.

No I only have the few that I posted in the defunct photopost and some "in progress" shots that I never scanned. My P-11 would run if I fixed the head. I traded a guy for it and never fixed it. He had a spark plug stuck in the head and tried to get it out with a chisel. Screwed up the sealing surface. Head is currently off it and I was pleased to find standard bore pistons in it.
I had posted shots of my 58 T-110 ,66 TR6C chopper, and my 64 BMW before I did any work to it the day I brought it home. I think I have some shots of my 72 Bonnie chopper floating around and some shots of my stock 72 Bonnie when I was doing the clutch on it, and some shots of my 72 Daytona when I got it and in stages of being re done. I have shots of my 67 Bonnie 8' long bike with very short forks and hard tail and very low to the ground with mini apes on it. None of my BSA I'm sure, trouble is most need to be scanned and are in my photo album stuck to the pages. I kept photo records of them in progress. Tons of shots of my 54 T-110 in pieces and stages of being rebuilt. That one isn't done yet. Not enough cash for the sheet metal I need yet.

By the way I also have a 76 Suzuki GT 750 triple 2 stroke and 2 GT 380s and a Honda 500 the funny looking V twin that kinda looks like a Guzzi engine. I don't include those in my count since they are jap. The GT 750 is buried in my shed the 2 380s have been sitting outside for the last 10 or so years and the Honda sits where I rode it to in the woods behind my house about 5 years ago. wasn't anything wrong with it when I parked it there but who knows now.

My Bonneville America of course and up until a few months ago a BMW R100/7 and a Bonneville T140-V. I restored both bikes and rode them regularly but got tired of wrenching and just wanted something fun and reliable.

I just got a 04 Speedy, Red & Black in July, What a great ride. I can't stay off it. I also have a 1983 TSX in Black I bought new with a 79 bonny as a trade. The TSX will get Classic tags as soon as I get the electric problem fixed. Waiting patiently in the back corner of the stable is a 75 T160 Trident in need of restoration. I'm going to need a bigger stable before I can talk the wife into a Rocket.

2002 Bonneville America and 2007 ABS Tiger. When I am home I have been riding the Tiger more. With the GIVI hard cases I can use the bike more like a small car. I can load 3 fully loaded grocery bags into the cases. The top case is 46L and the two side cases are 41L.

I'm making a change to my garage. The 2001 Bonneville is headed to Florida where my nephew is starting college at FSU and it's being replaced by this 1995 HD FXDS-C Dyna Convertible. Mid pegs, 28° neck angle, lots of torque...


So, now it's one 2004 America and one 1995 FXDS...

I have my '06 America that I ride the most *(11,000 miles)

A 1974 Triumph T100R Daytona 500 I purchased new in '74, probably over 30k, speedo been fixed twice, haven't rode it much since getting the America

Stock 1970 Triumph T120R Bonneville bought off of eBay back in 04. was a POS, did a frame up restoration to about 80%, ran out of capital but it runs and looks great. Put about 1000 miles since completing the resto in '07. Ride it occasionally, mostly local. (This one is for sale)

A 1968 Triumph T120R Bonneville. Had this bike about 4 years and am completing a rebuild now. Has a Routt kit on it and added a mild MegaCycle cam. Done up in '67 color scheme. This bike is loads of fun to ride.

Also have a '74 Dodge Dart waiting patiently to be road worthy!

Sweet. I've got '65 Stang with the original 289 but I also have a 302 core sitting in my garage. The 289 needs a rebuild too but I'm not sure which one I'm going to do. Want to keep the 289 original.

No photo's yet of my new to me Speedmaster. She is just a plain jane 2003. You all know what they look like.

This is my long distance ride. Although I am thinking of putting the SM to the test as well. Why, because its what I do.

By the way I also have a 76 Suzuki GT 750 triple 2 stroke and 2 GT 380s and a Honda 500 the funny looking V twin that kinda looks like a Guzzi engine. I don't include those in my count since they are jap. The GT 750 is buried in my shed the 2 380s have been sitting outside for the last 10 or so years and the Honda sits where I rode it to in the woods behind my house about 5 years ago. wasn't anything wrong with it when I parked it there but who knows now.




Shame on you Ian. Dont you know those bikes have feelings to. Bring them in from the cold and stop being so cruel.

How bad are the GT380s. Would you be intersted in letting one of those go. I have to finish my Honda project first which will hopefully be next spring, but after that, if you are into it. I wouldnt mind taking one of those of your hands.

The mind is the first thing to go, I'm told.
I thought the Suzuki GT's were two cyl's?
I had a Suzuki 500 GT back in the mid 70's, could have sworn it was a twin?
Sounds like a nice harem you've got there, Dog.

Actually, the H1 you refer to is a H2.
My H1 is in shed #4, which means she is FAR, FAR away from being photo ready. I would at least want a newer box before taking her picture!

The GT250, GT500 are two stroke twins, the GT380 and GT550 were two stroke triples and the last of the breed, the GT 750 is a water cooled two stroke triple.

All of the triples are higlhy desireable bikes. At least in my eyes they are.

I had the 550 but traded it for my Norton P-11, I rode the snot outa that bike. It would spin the rin inside the tire if you didn't have the rim locks good and tight. It would smoke the rear tire very easily if you did!

The 2 380s have been robbed for parts over the years and god knows what happened to the titles, I bought them for parts. Both engines are complete and used to run but I would bet are frozen now from sitting in the weather. I took the front end off the one and some odds and ends off both but I bet there is one complete bike between the 2 and probably wouldn't take many parts to put both back together. I would part with both cheaply.

Man O Man. A pic of my first bike. That H2 is/was flat scary. The late come on always blew me away. The only bike I ever did a 50 yard wheelie on. Accidentally. I was Under the influence and pulled up next to a Harley who was blipping his throttle at the red light. So I was clowning around and blipping back at him. The light turned green...and my young mind said "GO". I finally pushed the front end back down and made an impossible turn into a 7-11 parking lot a ways down the road. I was shaken up by my foolishness and was just pulling my helmet off when Mr Harley pulled in. He didn't even look at me, knowing I was completely insane at that point. Ah memories.

Thanks erle. Before I bought the black Spyder, I did want a silver-blue one, but now I'm kind'a glad I bought a black one.

And BTW, if you look real closely at it, you can probably see why I still use that picture of the back of the silver James Dean replica Spyder as my avatar. You see, just before he was killed in his Spyder, "The Rebel" had famed custom car maker George Barris paint "Little B*stard" on the back of his car, and so I've just figured that that was still pretty much apropos in MY CASE, and that's why I've kept it!

(...and trust me dude, you probably wouldn't find many folks around here who would argue with THAT, boy!!!)

Well, an itty-bitty part of it is anyway, Ian.

The engine block is from a '67 VW, but it has billet heads with goodly sized valves, and has been bored and stroked to 2165cc which all sits forward of the rear wheels where it dynos at about 155BHP. And with it's purpose-built tube chasis, the whole car weighs in at about 1250lbs, so it goes like a bat out o' you-know-where!

(in other words, it's about as close to bein' a "four-wheeled motorcycle" as you can get, dude!)

Well, that's certainly understandable, Tom.

That must be because of all the times around here when I've said that BA.com needs more cowbells!

(or I suppose it also could have seen all those times around here when I've relayed the story to you folks about where a friend of mine once hide his watch so the enemy couldn't find it)
