In the case of the Tornado it could have been because the electric system was terrible and often it had too flat a battery to start anyway!

But it was a beautiful bike my mates onw with pale blue and matt black tank and solo seat.

And it also sounded fantastic

What a surprise. There is a resurgence of motorcycle admiration going on on this thread. Only one large farm tractor and admittedly it looked good after Bo blew the size up.
Old bikes, new bikes, custom bikes, race bikes. Funny how the basic shape didn't change for 70 years then in the mid 70s all sorts of odd shapes hit both the streets and tracks as new and a break away from the stodgy old past.
It seems to me that a collector on average (not just one crazy guy) will pay much more for a 1967+- BSA, that is in fantastic shape, than any 1970s street bike yet today.

Thanks for chipping in different bikes than the wasp butts, insect nose and bulbous butt farm tractors we have suffered through for the last couple months.

It's because the Japanese have no sense of style. The only time they make something that is good-looking is when they copy Western style.
