OK, like the 'teens to WWII thread, this is for vintage bikes post-WWII to 1970's USA, British, German, Italian or other European manufacturers. If a moderator believes something in here belongs elsewhere, please make the placement, and inform me where I can find the thread, thanks.

An unusual bike, I think it's a Ford V8-60. A later build instead of a 1960's build, given the disc brakes, I believe. With that-much weight, I would want more-than a 5.10 90 series tire providing some rear suspension, as it appears to be a hardtail.

The next bike was done by an acquaintance of mine, a Florida dealership mechanic for Triumph when they were still in Meriden.

This newest format is confusing my old brain. I'll get it eventually! I like the thread, tried to start one myself on this subject several years ago, but there wasn't much interest in it. Hopefully this one will take off like a house on fire! This is my latest acquisition...'69 T100S. Restored it for a friend about nine years ago. He seldom rode it, so I figured it needed to be rescued...great little machine!

Thanks, youall.

The Victor tank looks terrific in its ubiquitous polished alloy and schoolbus yellow, and there's probably a law against changing it -- "criminal desecration of a britbike icon," prosecuted as a hate crime -- but just one time I'd like to see one done in alloy/black. That could be a sinister little bike.
