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.

Oldest and first bike was a CL450 Honda, punched .30 over 11.5 pistons and a Hooker 2-1 Header. Great running bike.

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.

Oldest m/c was a 1965 Norton Atlas. Great runner, wish I'd never sold it.

But first m/c was a Yamaha YDS-3; 2-cyl, 2-stroke, 250cc. Ugliest m/c I ever had. Got my m/c license with it and then traded it in on the Norton.

I had a 66 Honda Sport 50 also. Got in when I was 16. Just sold it to a buyer from Japan. Also sold my 72 Triumph Daytona 500. THAT one went to a buyer in England. Both bikes returned to their roots!
