My 1st experience behind the wheel of a turbo car was my friends (he was a spoiled Richie Rich) Grand National. I loved the crap out of it. Kids nowadays think Honda Civics and the like when they think turbo.....not me.....Grand Nationals and SVO Mustangs for me.

I ll walk into the Hutch Factory, Buy every aerospeeds and box cranks there is plus all the titrons, then Go to Redline, buy every 400's & 401's..   Also grab the brutes too tongue.

Get a Storage and pay 35 years on it.  Have the storage put another lock on it or get a land parcel in Texas, put a huge storm shelter on a hill and lock it up.  ( will make sure all the boxes are wrapped in painters plastic to keep humidity away.

While you're at it, grab a container of Mullard 12AX7 and EL34 power tubes and you'll make a killing.

You must be meaning if you had the money that you didn't have back then??  Otherwise, you would have made the purchase then!  smile

Or do you meaning, which bike worth a lot of money now, would you have bought back then....if you knew.

How far back do you have to go?

I'd most probably get the same bikes I had back then anyway.

I've left a lot of frames of the list, but I have good memories with those bikes.
