Show us your style ??
« on: October 17, 2020, 01:44:41 PM »
As some of our members have been good enough to take time to put up old pictures of their bikes from yesteryear I wondered if we could get some pictures of our members with their bikes or places they have taken pictures back in the day.(The older the better.)
The idea is to show the best and worst  :o style crimes that we thought were ok at the time.
Dodgy race leathers worn by us or pics at old race meeting by the riders.
'Stylish' footwear and other gear with no protection from road rash or ridicule is whats needed in a self *iss take kind of way.
Also when we had enough hair to have really bad haircuts.
I don't have any really early stuff but there is some later in a time when I should have been old enough to know better which is kinda worse if you know what I mean !
This is not to be taken serious or have a nasty dig at anyone but to enjoy our collective howlers that most of us have made in our motorcycle loving lives.
Just for a laugh in our covid times. ;)
Who's up first ?

Thanks for the effort but these are way to cool.
Surely we can do much worse than this. ::)

Ha hey !!
More like it.
The unusual 'individual' colour scheme. Is that yellow fork lowers with different colour wheels ? ???
I am sure you had your reasons and thought it looked the dogs do dads at the time. :-\

Lots of great 70s style in the ads here: https://flashbak.com/30-dynamite-motorcycle-ads-seventies-392531/
Couldn't see one for the RD though.

My Superdream from the early eighties... I thought it was cool.



Me arriving back home from the RD Rally a few years ago - with a modern luggage system...

Back in the day! Look at those winkle picker shoes. 1970 photo on my 1965 YDS3. Wish I still had it now!
