    Bingo!
    Mind you, I still prefer his Panhead.

    saw a similar modded sporty at Alpine rally 2 years ago,was well executed....sounded good,looked good and went very well .the owner enjoyed every ounce of go it had,when he left for a short ride empty.......and towed a trailer as well.but rode it a little quieter with the trailer on.

    1967 ad, looks like an adventure bike to me.
    They also look like those nicest people that were supposed to ride Honda's at the time.
    To counterbalance that, here's a shot of Pigpen from the Grateful Dead on his XLCH.

    PB, just found this, shows a ride up Bella Ck Rd west of Imbil, that I've suggested to you as a great hillclimb, then south past Jimna down Monsildale Rd, where the young lady dropped the traily on a slippery creek crossing.
    Had to laugh, I've run both the Sporty and the Vic bagger up and down Bella Ck road, and the other Vic up Monsildale Rd. Think I've even posted a pic on here of the Vic High Ball on Monsildale Rd.
    Bella Ck Rd will eventually be cut, drowned when they put the pumped hydro scheme in upstream of Borumba dam, probably closed off and solely for construction traffic well before then.
