Nope, most Japanese bikes in those days were almost cookie-cutter! Lot's changed since then. . .

My first bike was a 1970-something Honda 175. Orange, had a funky windshield on it my Dad got somewhere - but it was a bike!! Rode the crap out of it, and then sold it in a fit of stupidity. Next was a Brand New H-D Sportster. Had it for all of 5 days, until an "intoxicated" driver pulled in front of me and I put it in her driver's door. Took quite a while to heal up from that one . . .

Then came a Yamaha XS650, and now my Kawa ZL600. Unfortunately, no pix of anything but my ZL still exist. . .
