The bike on the left looks like it may be a Norton, comparing it with the attached photo.

Mr.Red. If you like those old flat tanker, total loss oil type bikes, then you must try and get to next years Pioneer Run from Epsom Downs. It would be an early start for you to get there, as they start to leave at 8am, going from memory. I always go, but more for the social, as always regard that meeting as the first event in a new biking year. It's usually the 3rd or 4th Sunday in March. See you at the tea hut, next year :lol .

There's a bit of a smell of beard oil, with all the hipster-cool bikes on the thread, but I guess cool is in the opinion of the individual. IMO, for example, BMW haven't produced a cool bike since the R90S!


Almost any bike can look cool with a bit of work, take Italian firm RossoChromo's CB1000R-based XESS, Velocity-moto's MT09-based 900LC or anything by Japanese firm AC Sanctuary, but the bike that was cool for me straight out of the crate was the Benelli TNT. Probably totally unreliable, but it looked something else!

My god, it certainly does.  That thing is almost the definition, for me, in my opinion, and all that, of uncool.

I like Sanctuary stuff, but it’s usually on the warm side of cool.  They don’t ooze universal coolness.


I love Katana’s, but I’m not sure if they are really cool.  They are desirable because they look so wonderfully weird, and I am pretty sure they will get attention from both bikers and non-bikers.


So here’s a Katana from Sanctuary.  The front discs with those red bobbins are a little uncool and the exhaust is a little busy, but it’s still reasonable cool.

Really!  R Nine T's are probably the coolest things they have ever done.  And currently the coolest off the shelf cool retro bikes on the market.

 Not sure about the way oversize tyres.
And painting  Honda Scrambler on them in huge letters is a bit silly never mind uncool.
