Let's see a picture of your bike that you were riding when you graduated high school. This is not my bike but mine was just like it. A Honda CB750

No pics available, but my 1st (1966) "bigger" m/c was a 1966 Honda 305 Scrambler with 6" front tubes, "ape hanger" bars, king/queen seat. Next was a new 1972 Honda 750 K2 with Hap Jones pull back bars w/shield, king/queen seat w/sissy bar, stock pipes w/baffles removed, 16" relaced rim w/16" VW tire, and 8" front tubes. As you can see, I couldn't afford a Harley chopper, but at the time it was great for me. Other misc bikes until 1989 when a bought my 1st Wing; a 1986 GL1200 SEi w/10k miles. Then a 2000 SE pearl white/pearl Merced Green, 2005 yellow, 2010 yellow.

One just like this in 1975.



A few years later, I had it plus a new 1978 CB 750K8

wish I still had both of them today.

I had about 3 bikes during that time... not all at once though:

Honda GL500 SilverWing. This is the one that I took took to college and rode my entire time there, until I traded it in for my 1991 Jeep Cherokee... which I still own today. :)



================================================

Honda CB 750A. Had this one during my junior & senior year in High School. If I wasn't riding this bike to school... then I was either catching a ride with 2WheelNut in his Mazda B2000 SE-5 in the winter, or "borrowing" my dad's full dress GL1100... until I wrecked it during my senior year. He wasn't too happy about that.



================================================

Honda interceptor: Believe it or not... I had a friend actually give this to me. After having it for about 6 months... he came back to me and said he'd like it back... but he'd give me his SilverWing instead. I said... OK. :)



================================================

BONUS!

Thought I'd throw this one in for fun!

Had this one from 9th grade until I upgraded to the CB 750... the trusty Yamahopper QT50! Bad brakes, leaky gas tank, and all!:

I had this the last two years of high school. Ported, polished, and very hard to keep the front wheel down when you twisted the throttle.

1966 honda CB450. 6 bolt clutch, matched sprockets, 4 speed built for racing. Would bury the speedo at 140 with no problem. Turned low 11's at the drag in the 1/4 mile. Never lost a race on it. God I loved that bike! (The cops didn't though!):roll::oops:

I purchased this 1976 CB550(4) while I was a senior in High School. It's still in the garage with just a little over 10,000 original miles.
