Very nice. There wasn't much Italian exotica around my area when I was that age except for the odd Lambretta or Vespa scooter. My own first bike was a hand-me-down 1968 Vespa 90 with a big screen & rear carrier with the spare wheel attached

Yeah, I must say that I like it. Hard to imagine an old ST 1100 in a cafe racer style but it actually works

Racked up 26,000 Miles on one from new and never a hiccup from it. Had to keep plugs and points pristine though.

They were way better looking than Honda's Super Dreams.
I remember looking at them thinking if I had one of them, I'd never want for any other bike in my life!
