Have to agree with you Brian.
Show Bike: 100% period correct, if economically feasible.
Daily Rider: If period correct detracts from "fun factor", then it becomes secondary in priorities.
That is what a 75 or 76 GoldWing is for... Always looking but can never find one that I want to buy.Period correct is my love. Practical? Not as... My XS has lots of modern day safety gadgets that make it not period correct. I am guessing that if I did do a period correct bike, I would not be riding it often.
