If any of you have old photos to post please do .

I had a huge collection of vintage Factory GP bike photos that were lost when our last computer went down and am having trouble finding many of them again . Especially the odd Husquavarna , Morbidelli and other notable factory bikes from the past .

Listen to this Norton Rotary

This 1957 Moto Guzzi V-8 verges on intoxicating

I always thought Kawasaki had some of the most sinister looking GP bikes . Photos of their rare bikes seem hardest to come by .

Ah, when clip-ons meant you literally clipped them to the forks
and when gas tanks were square
and when something other than I-4's raced.

Heres a few oldies I dug up. My favorite first. This is Graeme Crosby's Suzuki 1000 From the Bol D'or race in 198? Probable predecessor to the Gen 1 GSXR750.
