    I've got a semi-automatic scooter that uses a Honda 90 replica engine... except it's got race pattern gear change. Pretty much all the time I ride it I constantly chant the mantra "up is down, down is up".

    I love classic bikes, but I am not sure I could live with unreliability. I agree though, there’s definitely a space in my garage for a more sedate ride. I would be tempted to look at some of the Triumph retro models. Character with reliability. Nice!! 😁

    They used to be in the early days... If you wanted Triumph engine parts for an early Hinckley model they often came in Kawasaki bags.

    Depends how classic you're talking, most Japanes big bikes post 1985 are as reliable as a new bike, it all comes down to how they've been looked after
