Model(s): '72 R75/5 (swb) monza blue toaster tank
Comments: Original owner of '72 R75/5 (swb) monza blue toaster tank ~130,000 miles dirty, but still runs and runs. My house is way off the road and has plenty of room for parking, repairs (although no garage) and camping. I also have floor space available for crashing (as long as my wife's first impression of you is not too sleazy; you know how those biker types can be!). Some tools are available. Pick-up truck is also available. Nearest brand-x bike shop is 10 miles. Both Bob's BMW and Speed's Cycle are about 25-30 miles away. I love to ride and can show you some beautiful back roads in my area. Come by for coffee and conversation, or if you're lost or need help.
