I had a 1954 Matchless G3 back in 1972. I never got the charging system to function right, Fortunately, it had a magneto, so it would run even when the battery was drained. I kept that bike for nearly a year. I wish I still had it.

Default Oldest bike

Oldest one I had was a 1931 Harley VL, bought in 1985 90% complete and running for 2000.00. Rebuilt the motor and transmission, had a lot of fun with it, then I got remarried and kids came along, so down the road it went.
