  1. Being new to this forum, This subject no doubt has been done before but however it would be interesting to see what u think on this subject

    What would be your dream bike, your dream classic bike, and your dream car.

    I was thinking along the lines of mechanical bikes by the way

    Mine would be, Present day? I guess one of these 1200R B.M.W.s
    An older bike?I always lusted after a B.S.A. Rocket Gold Star or a Vincent Black Knight (I'll have both please sir)

    Car?????????? Aw I think one of these Mercedes M.L.500s but repowered by Brabus

    What do I have
    The bike is a TRX
    The car is a Kia Carnivore
    Back to top
  2. bikes?
    the bike from AKIRA or
    the dodge v12 powered motorbike(forgot what it was called)
    and the car from mad max. or the beetle from the cars that ate paris. classic
  3. Mmmm, interesting question.
    Current motorcycle would be the Honda NR750, oval piston high tech unobtainable bike. Absolutely no question here.
    Classic bike would be any Vincent I guess, just cos they were the superbikes of the 50's, but they were very modern for their time and didn't suffer from the unreliability of their contemporaries.
    Current car would be a Holden Calibra 4WD Turbo with the 6 speed gearbox. Right out of left field I know , but I owned a 2.0 litre un-turbo'ed one for 3 years and I loved it.
    Classic car. No question. A Gordon Keeble. A British classic of the 1960's. English fibreglass body and Aston-like interior with a Chevy V8 engine. Only 99 of them were ever made, most are still going and they almost never appear for resale.
    Someone's going to take me to task over the fact the NR750 and the Calibra are no longer made so can't be called "current"
    D'uh, I KNOW that; I am using the term to distinguish contemporary vehicles from those considerd to be classics.
  4. dream bike = Rossi's M1
    dream classic bike = 2004 Honda goldwing :LOL:
    dream car = some massive GMC/Ford AmeriUte that can carry both
  5. I would like a 'busa one day!
    classic bike would be a 1960's era BSA, like the one used in the pommy TV series "Heartbeat"
    only one car? I wouldn't mind one of those new Ford F6's, most torque out of a car built in oz!

    but all I got at the moment is a CBR250RR, and a Pajero!

  11. Current bike? If the rumours are true, and Enfield is going to re-release a 750 Interceptor, then that would have to be the bike for me. 750cc of lumpy vertical twin? YES PLEASE!

    Cars...hmmm..never thought about it really. 1964 Mini Cooper S 1275cc, I think.

    Classic bike? Velocette Venom, or, if they're out of stock this week, I'll take the Aermacchi Ala d'Oro 125cc - a Harley Davidson that won a Grand Prix (ridden by Australian John Dodds, Nurburgring, 1970).
