I am just sitting here at work bored and i decided to ask how many bikes do you all have in the stable? Pics of the collections would be cool too. Thanks!

Here's what I have at present, the number changes often:

1974 Yamaha TX650.....it's a keeper - been in the family since new.
1977 Honda 750 in Amen rigid frame....period build so far, kind of lost interest or too lazy to finish it, don't know which at the moment.
1979 HD XLS Sportster...just bought it. Don't know why or what I am going to do with it. LOL!
1979 Honda Goldwing.....bought as a parts bike, it's a stripped down mongrel at present, runs great, looks like shit. Will never again be a "touring" bike.
1953 HD 45" project.....G motor in a WL frame. Swap meet special that I need to get working on.
1951 HD 45 Bitsa. 51 45" G motor in a BSA A10 frame, pre unit Tri trans, Honda 750 fork. It was my daily rider for a couple of years, sadly I took it apart to make it more presentable and so far have not put it back together.
1966 BSA 650 A65F chopper. Last registered in 1979, I found it in a garage in Kansas City. Whole thing is about 19 feet long. Runs good, rides....well like an extreme raked rigid frame chopper. I rode it all over the Dallas area with 1979 MO tags and never had a problem. Hmmmm lucky I guess.
Got a BSA racer. 650 A10 motor...don't remember the year in an A7 (500 frame) that I bought from the late Jack Wilson.
Just sold a 1966 CL 77 Honda and just bought a CL72 frame and a SL 350 for future projects.
Dirt bikes come and go, don't have any at present unless you count the SL 350.
Some of these are here in the Garage of Lost Dreams in Georgia, some are at the garage annex in Arkansas.

2 for me. I own my first bike ever, a gift from my folks for my 13th birthday. An Indian 74 dirtbike, I still am amazed this bike is mine after all the family moves. I got offered 3K for it in 1986, now I wont take 100K! Sentimental ya know? That was the first bike I wrecked on, cut my sack open to be exact. Then, my current bike, a 72 Honda 500/4.

I have a couple knocking around.

This one will be back on Ebay in a couple of weeks as soon as I get the electric start installed, it appears they were scared off by the 100" kick only part (I hope).

I have a 1971 Triumph 250 Pic: http://www.clubchopper.com/photopost/data/500/7415250-med.jpg
Put that one together so the Girlfriend could learn to ride, but she didn't, got a 2001 Buell Blast for the same reason, with the same result. I'm gonna start riding it to work (70 mpg).
Have a never ending 1957 pre unit project that I don't believe will ever be finished, I can't get the engine back :(

The shovelhead is the bike I ride all over, it;'s running great!

And then there's this 1971 Triumph project in the kitchen I need to tear into PDQ.

1. Evo chop w/ a gooseneck frame.
2. '73 Triumph chop currently being rebuilt.
3. '81 Shovel project that is just a motor, 4 speed straight-leg frame and front end right now.
4. '74 ironhead motor that will eventually be some kind of street/drag racer type bike.
5. '04 Triumph Bonneville that my wife rides.
6. '81 Yamaha XS 400--my first real bike, it is dissassembled so I can do something to it someday, who knows what.

I am currently looking for a sportbike too, but since I know very little about them, I am researching/reading about them so I get a good one. I am leaning towards a 750 or 1000 GSXR.

Just two
'77 Shovelhead
'74 CB360T
Neither gets ridden as much as they should, but 87 octane just hit $2.50 in southern WI, so I'm thinking they'll get much more ride time in the months to come:)
