For crying out loud Lefty I was only 13. You are in your late 20s (so I guess) and you still post ugly bikes you like. Except you did a run of Ducs and Japanese bikes that were cool.

Being 13 is no excuse. If that's what you liked looking at when you were 13, what kind of girls were you chasing?

It looks like it was exposed to nuclear radiation.

Gotta say, I'm with Hap on this one, somehow that bike transcends its own nerdy qualities.
Btw, this just popped up in my in-box:

Maybe not classically pretty, but it's one tough looking beast.

I like that.

It's much better than HAP's Chernobyl machine.

What is the engine to bike ratio on that thing HAP? I don't want to use sophisticated words like power. Fcuk you're funny! And you had the audacity to use the word Cool.

You're messin' with us eh HAP?

But wait there's more.

So I was surfing about and HAP's ugly Honda kept pestering my thoughts. I went back and had a look at it and thought "Why T.F. does this tiny 125cc engine have two exhausts? And why haven't I heard of a Benli despite being a Honda fan for the greater part of my MC life?

Oh Bo of wondrous surfing skills. The Dream is the white one behind the CB. Please remember your Honda History. The CA prefix may well have been used in Aussy land for any left over, non sold CBs from around the world.
This is a dream, areal night mare really for those surfers who use antiquated surf boards.
