      I've ridden bikes a lot in my long life(probably long because I don't ride everyday). Never understood why the long front struts as it would make it difficult to make turns & certainly would throw a lot more water in your face. It does look cool, but is that the only reason? I don't even like those fat tractor tyres as it slows down response. Please give me a straight answer.

      yeah blunder we seem to grow with age in the 70's that was the cool thing ..but they were more of a bar hopper ..long trips were far and in between.....

      thanks bellin .i still like to ride the old bikes , but i need more comfort these days ....

      That would certainly be more practical for long trips. And there is also a hell of a lot of leverage on the welds of the front frame. That long of a strut would play hell on driving on this island. We have a LOT of "Hardlies" here but don't see that configuration. Kind of looking for a distressed sale myself. I have a high IQ but low judgement factour.

      Mike, what issue of Easyrider? I have most of them from the late 70's and early 80's, would look it up and if I have it, you're welcome to it.

      Like the reference to the bar runs, we called then T.N.T runs (tavern, new tavern), lol
