Best Bike You Let Go?

1978 Kawasaki Z1-R 1000. Bought it new and had to wait for it to be uncrated. Sold it in 86.

We owned Evel Knievel’s Laverda American Eagle with 390 original miles for over 40 years. It was a give away bike awarded for a baseball throw contest in Butte, Montana in 1970. My mom’s cousin won it before trying out for the Reds, then almost killed himself on it. My dad bought it after coming home from Vietnam. It leaked oil everywhere we moved and my dad sold it to some Phoenix tweeker who complained about everything. The bike was all orig, tires, paint, even the seat. Probably was resold for a couple of dime bags. lol
