Man those old 900s are soooo cool. The motorcycle equivalent of those old Detroit cars back when chrome was chrome, style was style and bumper bars were 1/8" steel, not plastic over foam.

I had a 64' XLCH back in the early seventies and I wish I still had it...Cannot remember what I did with it and cannot find any old pictures. I guess it's just a memory now...

Here's a really nice 65 which is only 365 days off, but I think you'll like it.
