I love the Linto massive 10" front drum, for extra stopping power!

 

It's a wonder anyone survived these things.

Really lovely this. Not a fan of Suzuki, or rice rockets in general, but quite lovely.

 

Bikini top matches the bike, and skin tone matches my taste. Well done.

The Japanese engineering here truly stands out. And they did a decent job on assembling a cafe racer, as well.

From urdesign.com - some beautiful American engineering on a resurgent American brand.

What are the black discs behind the radiator? Are those speakers?

Looks like a air filter.

The engineering looks good, shame about the design!

Aesthetics we can disagree, but the new bikes have better ergonomic design. The bikes guys in your generation built and rode are brilliant. But sitting on top of a rectangle, with a wheel at either end and an engine roughly in the middle, was not the pinnacle of ergonomic design.

 

I enjoy riding older bikes around for the experience, but not for everyday riding.

Three things have to be present for me to even consider a bike being "good":- handling, braking & performance if you bring these three things together and also have a beautiful looking bike you have nailed it, ten minutes riding the Indian would give me a fail on at least one of these points - 🤔
