PostSubject: Howdy Folks   Tue Jan 18, 2011 3:18 pm

Hey guys and girls. My name is Harley and I live in the Wairarapa.

Just found this forum and the bikes look really great. Thought I'd share my bike. before I went to the uk I used to ride this around wellington with 'No ton' on the tank.

Here it is three years later and with a new paint job.
its a 1980 Suzuki GS550.





Next project is an old 70's CB450.... if i can get it unseized.

Cheers

Harley

Thanks guys.

On the tank is the old Matchless logo with "mediocre" under it.

Thinking something like a hardtail bobber for the cb..... if i can free it up.
