The Motorcycle I'd Like to Find is the Royal Enfield Indian Chief, made in the late 50's-early 60's after the American brand big bore folded in the early 50's. Had a shot at one right here in my town a few years ago but blew it.

What's yours?

Find? 馃槣
I鈥檇 really like a brand new Yamaha RD-400 Daytona Special.
Many years back, there in fact was one auctioned off. It sat in it鈥檚 original crate from Japan behind a couch at a dealer. Not sure what it sold for, but I didn鈥檛 have the money back then anyway.

Since were going with the word 鈥渇ind鈥 that makes me think of something I don鈥檛 see often or at all for that matter. When I was 4 they bought me a CHiPs bike that I spent almost all my time on. I remember wanting a bike like that, unfortunately it took me almost 40yrs to actually get a bike. So if the opportunity ever lines up that I can get this I鈥檇 do it. 1980 KZ1000. The police versions are awesome but probably more than I鈥檇 want. This one would be perfect :)

KZ 1000....yes 馃憤

My second pick is a bike I saw every time I went to my dealer back in the late 70鈥檚. It sat in the window and back then I only wished I had the money to buy it. A 1974 Ducati 750 Super Sport:

Not sure what one is going for now, but I bet it鈥檚 a lot more than what they were asking for it back then.

Good to know there鈥檚 a few out there.
I still see groups of them coming out of the police auctions every once in a while, but there wasn't any listed last week.

I'll have an HD Ultra Classic with Rinehart pipes please.

Look for a VN1500 Drifter?

I have most of what I've wanted to ride over the years in my stable. Never too late to add my favorite, but not willing to pay today's prices: KZ1100 LTD shaft. Or perhaps a 750 Water Buffalo
