In Maryland, Yes actually anything bigger than a 50cc scooter is registered as a motorcycle, not a scooter.

Re: The '78 Sporty. I have no idea what it's worth. Best thing to do is ride it by some of the indy shops and see what they think.

I'm on the edge of a very slippery slope with my latest aquisition... started out with a little TLC but I'm experiencing project creep which may well lead to lighter wheels and bodywork mods... I need to pull the swingarm, and the front end anyway, it wouldn't take much more work to strip it all the way and build it up how I really want!

Yeah, it's a '97 900ss/sp. One of my favorite Ducs, I bought one new in '95 but sold it to buy a 996 in 2000. Always said I'd buy another one and last August I finally did. This one needed some work which I'm trying to get done this week, but I keep moving backwards. At least it'll run well this spring...

That'd be a 1966 Ducati Monza Jr that no longer looks anything like a '66 Monza Jr.



That'd be it from another angle or just go here for the whole story.
http://www.teamyikes.com/160/ducati160home.html

That's a '74 750GT partly hidden by the bike cover, and the flash in the background is the plate on the aforementioned 996.

EDIT: Oh yeah, the yellow fender behind the 750 is for my Harely powered cafe racer project. I'm still collecting parts for that one. I need a wideline featherbed frame and a few other things still... ok, fine. All I've got so far is the fender but it's a start!

I'm kinda fond of Italian bikes too. big shock, I'm sure! There are a couple more hidden behind stuff down there... a 907ie, a 250 Monza that's going to be a 350 Bitsa, and, well, a 250 that's now a hardtail.

Yeah, It'd be Sportster (or Buell) powered. I'm basically pissed off Harley has forgotten about it's sporting heritage and want to build something along the lines of my Super Sport, only Harley powered. (And before some young 'un gives me shit about thinking Harley has a sporting heritage, check the results at Daytona from the 50s to the 70s, then get back to me)

But now I'm rambling... and no, the heater isn't from Italy!

Check these out. If no one wants to trade, these are only $22

I have clubmans (7/8"), that I replaced with clip ons, available for sale (possibly trade) for those interested.

PM me for details.

Project Creep..neat phrase. Mine sometimes get bad case of Project Explosion. I get a bit or twelve and pretty soon I have a pile of parts going, "Hey baby, you know you want it." What I really need is about 200 gallons of Spare Time.

Hey you should have been there at Speed Week for bikes. Some of them looked more like things you wore. I didn't see this particular one, but there was some really fun stuff.

Kinda steampunk! Fantastic looking engine. I think I would put a little larger rear tire on it and maybe a touch wider seat but that would be it.
