1979 Harley-Davidson XLH-1000 Sportster and 1979 Corvette in Candi Root Beer over Black Pearl Matched Set

This matched set costs a whole lot of money…guess how much and it’s yours free. There has never been, and probably never will be, another matched set like this 1979 Harley-Davidson XLH1000 Sportster and 1979 Corvette in Candi Root Beer over Black Pearl. Custom designed by none other than Willie G. Davidson and painted by Butch Brinza, nationally acclaimed custom painter of exotic cars and motorcycles. And what a job Butch did: First, after careful block-sanding, he applied ten coats of primer followed by the base coat of Black Pearl. Over this, Butch layed coat after coat of Candi Root Beer. Next came the Harley-Davidson logos on both car and bike. To protect the masterpiece paint job six coats of clear lacquer were applied for a “foot-deep” finish. And last, but not least, dark red accent pinstriping was flawlessly applied by hand.If you can guess the retail value of this matched set…it’s yours. At this point, so as to get a head start on your buddies, you’d probably rather have a quick run down of all the additional equipment on each…Here goes:

Sportster: Sissy bar with back rest pad, chrome footpeg end caps, right hand rearview mirror, air cleaner grille, chrome oil cooler, oil cooler cover, Eagle A/T raised white letter tires, oil filter kit, hi-way pegs, chrome timer cover, gold finished “1000″ and “Sportster” medallions, chrome passenger peg end caps, custom paint and striping.

1976 Yamaha XS750-D Road Test – Not the fastest 750, but the smoothest and nicest.

Deep inside its several basic-black cases and compartments the new Yamaha XS750D is a technoid’s delight, especially with respect to its absolutely labyrinthine power train and clever self-cancelling turn indicators. We’ll get to the mechanical minutiae in due course, but for most of you none of it is as important as simply knowing that Yamaha’s 750 triple genuinely is an all-new design and not an XS500 twin with an extra cylinder and shaft drive as some people have supposed…

1976 Penton 250 MC5 Motorcycle Road Test / Photos / Specs

Buying the best motocrosser is no simple task these days. Time was, only a few seasons back, when price for the most part indicated which race bikes were superior. The expensive European mounts were clearly better motocrossers than the less costly Japanese bikes. But the tide has changed, and price alone no longer singles out the best – or worst. Honda started the change with the Elsinore, Yamaha emphasized it with the YZ series and Suzuki’s RMs are tearing up tracks from coast to coast. Still, the Europeans have not been sleeping, though their bikes have sen less dramatic improvements. Maicos, Huskies, Montesas and Bultacos are proven machines, and finally Penton has developed its first real motocrosser – the Grand Prix replica 250cc MC 5.

1976 Kawasaki KE175 Vintage Motorcycle Ad – “City Boy”

City Boy. Paul spotted him first, just a bouncin’ along, an’ a grinnin’ away like he know’d somethin’ everybody else didn’t. When he finally got to where we were a settin,’ Paul winked at me an’ ask him real straight-face, “You lost, city boy?”

“Not necessarily,” he smiled.

Bobby ask him what it was that he was ridin,’ an’ city boy said it was Kawasaki. “A whut?” Bobby said. “A Kawasaki, KE175,” city boy told him, real proud. Said it had some kinda new-fangled engine, an’ a five-speed transmission an’ all kinds’a other fanacy stuff. Said he could ride it just about anywhere he pleased, too…on the road or off – didn’t make no difference. Bobby said, “I’ll take my palomino any day, he don’t get lost.” “That’s right,” Paul said, “horses got brain. Know where they’re goin,’ even if you don’t.” City boy just grinned an’ said, “Which way’s town?”

Well, right away Paul starts ta’ pointin’ up the road, toward the bunkhouse. An’ no sonner’n he had his finger stuck out, an’ Bobby was a pointin’ up t’other way.

City boy just eyed ‘em both for a minute, an’ then, with that same grin on his face, he started up his motor-sickle. First kick. Then he pulled out a map an’ handed it over ta’ Bobby an’ said straight-out, “Stick it where your brains are, cowboy…and maybe you’ll end up smart as your horse,” An’ off he rode.

Thought Paul and Bobby’s faces were gonna turn redder’n their necks. Good thing that machind didn’t stall.
