Wow, now that brings back some memories, gbc! In my senior year in high school (69) my best friend had a 67 that was even the same color. I was riding a 68 Kawasaki A1SS Samurai (250cc 2-stroke twin with scrambler pipes) and we were known as the Scrambler Twins at school.
He still has that CL77, but my Samurai is long gone. I ended up putting low expansion chambers on it, replacing the pistons, rotary valves, and carbs, and doing some porting work and I held the AHRA 250cc modified record on it for nearly a year before a spectacular engine failure at 10k+ rpm ended my interest in it.
Ironically, next weekend is our 50 year high school class reunion and my friend will be going on his 2019 Royal Enfield 650 and I’ll be going on my 2018 Bonne T120. We’re betting that we are the only ones who show up on motorcycles.
