I don't even come close to having the jack to own anything cool and pre-war but I would KILL for a Brough-Superior. They are some wicked mechanical art if nothing else.

Build an Indian. I just don't see any of them around anymore that aren't restored showpieces. It would be cool to see one tricked out in style.

There were some cool wartime and pre-war HDs coming out of Egypt a while back. Apparently someone discovered a big cache in a warehouse or something and they were putting them together from parts. There was even a shop over there that was doing them for the western market but the color choices were really weird for that era of bike. I saw one that was the very picture of military dress but it was some screwy bright ass yellow. And with a sidehack no less. Sorry, not that this has anything to do with your question, it just brought some wartime HD weirdness to mind.
