I had Bassani’s on my KZ1. Sold it because I acted like an idiot every time I rode it. It just begged to be ridden like a Hooligan. And I did. Was gonna get dead or a lot of tickets with that one. Gone!

1977..I was 28..freshly married and not riding anything as I could only afford nothing more than a '63 VW Bug...I had been riding bikes earlier in my life..but wouldn't get back on until I turned 64 (spent over 12 years in a kayak on wild rivers to get my ya-yas out)...
I'm not sure how any of that has anything to do with how ugly that bike is...my mom rode a '57 XLCH Sportster and even with it's shark fin exhaust tip looked world's better than that bike...a 1/4 fairing on a headlight just doesn't cut it in this case...

I think it still looks good today and for it's time, I was assuming you were probably riding an import like I was. And in 77 I was riding a Honda CB350F, I think that the Harley Cafe is possibly a more "Collectible" bike than a Honda CB350F?

I guess that was my point

1977, hmmmm. Street was a '75 Z1. It was fast but felt as big as the Titanic because I had sold my previous bike, a Yamaha R5 350cc two-stroke twin to get it. Now THAT was a sweet bike. On the dirt I was flat tracking my Bultaco Pursang (flat case 250). Hard to believe that I eventually ended up with a Harley but that might explain why I like that custom cafe.

I dunno, try to find unmolested CB350F? Most didn't survive the sawzall craZe of 1990s-2000s.
