Probably a 1965 Honda CL72, which was the first real bike I owned. But it could be a Triumph T100C I had (much) later, I can't remember what yr it was...

Oldest bike I remember owning was a 1962 Honda Super 90. Yes, it was ridable, in fact, it was almost new at the time. I think it had something like 800 miles on it when I bought it. Rode it a while and saved up enough money to buy a 305 Superhawk. My brother bought the Super 90 from me.

Both bikes are in this picture.

That was my brother. Florida had just passed the mandatory helmet law and he got away with the football helmet for a couple months until he could afford a real helmet. They wasn't really enforcing it very much back then. Most of the local city police were not even aware that the helmet law had passed. That was long before the Internet or 24 hour TV news. I think I paid something like a whopping $24 for the Bell open face and bubble shield. That was a lot of money for a kid making $2.00 an hour pumping gas and changing fan belts.
