Pictures from back in the day

Postby Peter Balfour » Fri Oct 15, 2010 8:51 pm

I'm sure everybody here has pictures of themselves from back in the day on their ride. I just found this picture of me on my '72 Suzuki GT380 cafe racer when I was about 17. My dad took this picture with a crappy polaroid colour camera which was cool in the 70's. This was my first real road bike and as you can see I always had this thing for road racers. I rode the tar out of this thing, siezed it once and broke a crank. It had a dunstall seat, CR750 fairing and clip-ons. Notice the Bell Star helmet and very protective riding gear :shock: . Nobody back then road bikes with full fairings on the road so I was looked at as some sort of social misfit...oh how some things never change :D .
