What else is in your garage?

Is there a thread to show/discuss what other bikes you have in your care?
Cheers,
Dave

 :084: .... don't recall a specific thread (certainly not recent), often members simply add their past and/or presently owned bikes as a signature on their posts (as I have).
Also owned my 1979 Bonnie T140E from new!

Thanks Steve, ok, well I'll kick this one off with one of my other rides, my 1971 Commando:



You're looking at around 25 years of work there to get it back on the road and reasonably well fettled. Paid $1,200 way back then for a bunch of boxes including a crank case with a conrod poking through it. Pretty heavily modified "back in the day" with a Marzocchi front end and alloy wheels (no, they're not off a Ducati!) and a really dodgy front disc brake conversion by the Dreaded Previous Owner (DPO). Trying to re-engineer that horror at the moment, but it all takes time, effort and money.

Recently blew my tax return on a new Fullauto head:



but it's such a work of art, I'd almost rather leave it on the coffee table than hide it under the fuel tank!

Anyone else up for a bit of show-and-tell?
Cheers,
Dave

Fun bike.
Don't have a garage so i can't have anything that requires extensive fettling much as i would like to.

I have too many bikes.
Aside from the Tiger 800, I have a trio of old British classics:



Then I have a fun little KTM 390 Duke:



Finally, I have one of the very first Street Triple R models:



(It was Graphite Grey, but I changed it to gloss orange.)

Used to have this in my garage. Restored 1974 outfit and raced with retro racer series. Back to my time in the 70's







It wasn't me !!
