What do these bikes have in common?

They're all mine. I bought the Honda a week ago. Couldn't resist myself, it was to clean and to good deal a deal to pass up. I've got a few small things to do to it. But it's road ready right now.

Oh well...
I was going to answer your question, however you gave the answer!
No problem getting the Honda home?
Can't wait to see it!

Hey jptbird99nm, I would be curious to hear your comparison between the Honda and the T'Bird . I seem to recall that they had very similar power/weight ratios. although I dont remember if the wheelbase is similar.
Of course the frames are much different . But if your in the mood to compare the 2 bikes I would like to hear it.

Hi James, Well here's how it feels to me. There's almost five inches difference in wheelbase length.The T-Bird being longer, lower seat height and a lot less top heavy feeling. Brakes, two discs vs one disc and a drum. Performance, T-Bird feels much faster and quicker. More displacement and three cylinders vs four. You feel like you are setting on the Honda as opposed to setting in the T-Bird. But this an unfair comparison for the Honda as it is twenty-six years older. After all it was state of the art in 1973. It is an old classic and the T-Bird is a newer classic. I am enjoying it tremendously, it turns almost as many heads and starts conversations much like the T-Bird. Hope this helps.

Thanks Medic09, I've been lurking on sohc4.net but haven't joined yet. I have seen some of your posts there. They seem like a friendly bunch. I see you have a Trident, I had a 73 T150V for almost 12 years, went through a divorce and sold it because I thought I needed the money,ended up I didn't too. I've been kicking myself the rear ever since. Pics for all my bikes will come later.
