1. The vincent you posted is an interesting historical bike. These somehow appeal more. It has looks that are classic and don’t ever feel out of date. It looks good to ride. These are to looks on classic bikes what the shelby cobra is for cars..

    I’d love to see triumph and others building bikes with these nice lines, but completely ignoring any demand for historical appearances for functional suspension parts. Keep the tank profile and posture, but what’s wrong with mono swing arm and central shock and exhaust? Who says the engine has to feel and sound like an old one? Who cares whether drum brakes look more proper to the style. Bikes are for riding. Do you think the guys who styled tritons and dunstall bikes wasted a minute worrying whether their bikes were true to the spirit of bikes from the 1920’s? Nah- they built the bikes they wanted.
