The ups and downs of owning a classic motorcycle

I am a new rider and a new subscriber to Motorcycle Classics. I love your magazine. I just read your article Yesterday is Back (May/June 2013) and I feel it definitely is.

I recently restored a 1971 Honda CL100 that my father bought back in 1973 (he rode it a short time before moving up to a 1975 Harley-Davidson Super Glide 1200) and have been enjoying it ever since. I can’t get enough of it. What a joy it is to ride around town. It makes me feel like it’s the Seventies all over again. It gets a lot of attention from other riders and people passing by. I think it is such a great way to get around. Keep up the good work! —Tom Jaworski/Prospect Heights, Ill.
